Congress Releases How Much THEY Paid In Sexual Harassment Payouts, People Are Speechless

Amid the news of sexual harassment brought against Democrat Senator Al Franken, the Congressional Office of Compliance released a list of how members of Congress have are responding to such incidents.

The list totals the number of settlements released and the pay-outs over the course of the last two decades.

The information is broken down by year, via the Congressional Accountability Act, showing Congress has already paid out $934,754 this year in settlements.

Per Bizpac Review:

In the released statement, OCC executive director Susan Tsui Grundmann explained that these cases originate from multiple offices inside of the legislative branch, other than the House or the Senate.

“Based on the volume of recent inquiries regarding payment of awards and settlements reached under the CAA, I am releasing these figures beginning with Fiscal Year 1997, up to and including FY 2017,” Grundmann wrote. “A large portion of cases originate from employing offices in the legislative branch other than the House of Representatives or the Senate, and involve various statutory provisions incorporated by the CAA, such as the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

The numbers are truly astonishing, take a look:

Over $9.5 million since 2007?!

The released information has some people on Twitter calling for more details concerning the pay-outs, because the money actually comes from taxpayers:
