Commentary: Stopping sexual harassment the right thing to do

By Luke Messer Special to TheStatehouseFile.com Recent reports of sexual harassment by members of Congress are disgraceful.  What’s worse, we learned that taxpayer money has been used to silence these victims and prevent them from telling their stories.  Enough is enough.  Members of Congress should not treat taxpayer dollars like a slush fund to settle […]
