GOP Rep. Writing Bill To Prevent Lawmakers From Pulling a “John Conyers”

Read

Following reports of Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) using tax dollars to settle sexual harassment claims, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is crafting legislation that would unseal all sex settlement records and ban the use of tax dollars to pay the claims.

“Settlements paid with tax dollars should not be kept secret. Members of Congress cannot be allowed to use the American people’s money as a personal slushfund to cover wrongdoing. I’m working on legislation to unseal settlement records, bar use of tax dollars to pay claims against members & staff, prohibit members from using office budgets to camouflage payments (a Conyers rule) & require reimbursement of the taxpayer,” tweeted DeSantis on Wednesday.
