    Every allegation must result in the immediate expulsion of the lawmaker. Moore doctrine.

  • WorkingClass

    Gives new meaning to the phrase "a member of Congress." ;-)

  • Paul Vondra

    Imagine that. We have a Congress that needs special training in basic courtesy, respect, non-perversion, and respect for the law. Of course, it won't be long before the bottom-feeding right refers to the campaign to prevent sexual assault and harassment as "political correctness run amok" since the bottom-feeding right has spent years redefining "political correctness" as any attempt at courtesy, civility and respect.

    Ah, Mr. Paul "Legitimate Rape" Ryan has something to say on the subject, does he?

  • ProfPalefuddy

    Hiding behind a non disclosure agreement should be made retro actively mute, as it is clear that this kind of safety zone allows repeat offences. Anyone who has settled a case should be exposed. In future these cases should include Public Exposure, and termination of the violator not the person violated.

    I don't know about the Congress, but male strip clubs are waiting for the man's name disclosed. It will be a win-win.

  • E Sverdrup

    I agree training is needed but the congressman who exposed himself needs to be kicked out of congress. That’s unacceptable that any employee would have to deal with that. There is no second chance.

    Outside of penthouse forums stories when has exposing yourself to someone you barely know, have some kind of business relationship with, or met at a bar, ever ended in any way other than a mixture of awkward surprise, horror and disgust, and the abrupt end of the relationship?

    Like who out there thinks presenting the snake uninvited has ever closed the deal ever?

  • donnie vanderford

    You call an intern to your home, expose yourself and you need training to know not to do that?
    What is wrong with us?

  • RoyalT

    If you need mandatory training to learn that you shouldn't expose yourself to others......maybe you shouldn't be representing the American people on any level.

  • Blaize Rage

    And she stayed around to watch? It is not like it is not obvious what a male is going to do that a person can't attempt to leave.

  • BassPlyr73 Again

    Man, what kind of world are we living in today? I mean, you can't even expose yourself or sexually harrass/assault your subordinates anymore and get away with it. Is this really how we want our country to be? SMH

  • Sue Thomason

    If grown men running for office need "training" something is definitely wrong.

  • Siestasis 42

    Any member that exposes himself to another elected official or staff member needs to be removed. Kick their butts out with whatever procedure is required.Let them explain to their voters why they cannot serve

  • George Columbo

    Tell me it isn't true, both Republican and Democrat?
    Come on people get your act's together. Enough of this crap. Act like men and ladies and do the absolutely correct thing. Stop acting like moron's.

  • turtlemouth

    Who does this? I don't even like standing next to anyone at the urinal; I can't imagine having the nerve to just go off and expose myself to someone.

  • BD70

    Wait...they lack any self control so they think not hiring women is the answer? smdh......

  • Donnie The Lion

    Sometimes the victims get threats of death for coming forward. It isn't the easiest thing to name names.

  • Bryan Thompson

    Yeah, anyone over 18 needs training not to touch someone else without their permission, not to require an aid to bring work to their home. Yeah, whatever .... All the "training" in the world means nothing to these people. If they think they can get away with it, they'll try.

    I sincerely hope every woman harassed by a member of Congress comes forward and names her culprit. That is the only way it will stop. People in Congress know all about their code of silence and expect everyone including staffers to follow it. There is momentum right now to do the right thing and come forward. Let's hope it happens.

    "Comstock did not name the member of Congress, whose name wasn't disclosed to her."

    So all hearsay? This is nothing more than another attempt, from a different angle, to make GOP look like a bunch of sex offenders when we know it isn't just the GOP.

    I guess we can thank Mr. Weinstein for the sudden spate of accusations. Although it has been going on in one form or another for decades. Then again perhaps the Media just needed a new topic to get attention.
