Meehan Settled Sex Harassment Claim –Pennsylvania 7th District Congressman Pat Meehan has settled a sexual harassment claim from a former staffer, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars, according to a story in the New York Times. The report has cost the Republican his seat on the House Ethics Committee.
Meehan is denying the claim.
Drew McGinty, an IT professional; Elizabeth Moro, a Realtor; attorney Dan Muroff; and Molly Sheehan, a biomedical researcher are seeking the Democrat nomination to replace him.
Daylin Leach, the Democrat 17th District state senator, has put his candidacy on hold due to sexual harassment issues of his own.
Stan Casacio please consider re-entering the ring. How about you Lisa Esler? You want to give it a shot?
Or you can just vote for Joe Billie.
And I’d be remiss in not mentioning Craig Williams.
Meehan is at least the fourth congressmen this year — and the second from Pennsylvania following Tim Murphy (R-18) who quit Oct. 21 — to face allegations of serious sexual misconduct.
And this does not include Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn) who was forced out this month due to twisted behavior and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) who reportedly likes underage teens at Caribbean resorts but remains in good standing with “the world’s greatest deliberative body“.
