Pat Meehan is toast. NYTimes:
But after the woman became involved in a serious relationship with someone outside the office last year, Mr. Meehan professed his romantic desires for her — first in person, and then in a handwritten letter — and he grew hostile when she did not reciprocate, the people familiar with her time in the office said.
Life in the office became untenable, so she initiated the complaint process, started working from home and ultimately left the job. She later reached a confidential agreement with Mr. Meehan’s office that included a settlement for an undisclosed amount to be paid from Mr. Meehan’s congressional office fund.
Seriously. He has the most gerrymandered district in the state—it practically launched the Fair Districts PA movement, for pete’s sake!—-did he really think that no one would be watching? That the #metoo movement would just pass him by?
And paying out of taxpayer money? Bad form. Very bad form.
Can all the current congressmen and senators who HAVEN’T been chasing skirts, please raise your hands?
The rest of you are dismissed.
