‘I was blackballed’: VA Rep. the latest Dem lawmaker hit with sexual harassment charges

[sharenow]

Mystery solved.

Back in November, former congressional staffer and Congressional Black Caucus Fellow Reese Everson spoke to Fox News host Laura Ingraham about her experience of being sexually harassed on Capitol Hill, but declined to name the alleged perpetrator:

“[He said], ‘So Reese, are you gonna be a good girl?'” Everson told the Fox News host on November 15, adding that her employer asked “if you’re gonna be a good girl, what is the point of you being here?”

The ‘he’ in this instance has recently been revealed to be none other than Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott of Virginia, who not only allegedly sexually harassed his former staffer, but also fired and blackballed her from additional work on Capital Hill after she refused his overtures, according to Fox News.

In a classic case of quid pro quo, Everson claims that Scott touched her on the body and the leg without permission and offered to advance her career if she would allow him to flirt with her.

For his part, Scott is denying the claims and even accusing his former aide of being “backed by a Republican operative known for dabbling in outlandish conspiracy theories.” Scott’s statement linked to a Daily Beast article about a Republican lobbyist, Jack Burkman, who reportedly offered a $100,000 reward for information about the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich that leads to an arrest.

Huh?

We’re not sure what Seth Rich has to do with Scott’s alleged actions, but the congressman is doubling-down, and hard.

“I have never sexually harassed anyone in my 25 years of service in the United States Congress, or in my 40 years of public service, or at any other time,” the 70-year-old Scott insisted, adding, “… I am confident that this false allegation will be seen for what it is when the facts are adequately reviewed.”
