Lawmakers Serious About Punishing Members Of Opposition Party Accused Of Sexual Harassment

This article originally appeared in The Antwerp Oyster.

Washington, D.C. — Politicians in Washington are determined to demonstrate that swift consequences will be issued to any colleague facing allegations of sexual harassment and who’s a member of the other political party. Both Republicans and Democrats want the country to thoroughly understand that this type of behavior will not be accepted from members across the aisle. “When it comes to sexual assault or harassment, we need to believe all women when they come forward with such allegations, as I’ve stated numerous times when discussing those guys over there,” said House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “At the same time, we have to make sure we respect due process, you know, for our guys. Because you just don’t know, except when it’s you know who.” On the other side, during a news briefing last week, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to questions about the White House’s position on accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore by stating “yeah, but what about Al Franken? Did you see that photo of him? It was disgusting. Let’s just make sure we first hear Mr. Moore out, okay?” A House Democrat, who wished to remain anonymous but did comment on the allegations sweeping the halls of Congress, said he’s sickened by the horrifying actions of his Republican colleagues and can’t believe anyone would accuse a Democrat of such behavior because they’re obviously “pro-women and stuff.”
