Lawmakers have unveiled a new bill aimed at overhauling the way sexual harassment claims are reported and handled on Capitol Hill. It’s called the Member and Employee Training and Oversight On Congress Act – or the “ME TOO Congress Act.” Under current protocol – victims of sexual harassment must go through a lengthy, arduous process to file a harassment claim. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says this is one thing Congress needs to get right
Gillibrand who helped write the bill says the current rules only protect the perpetrators.
Gillibrand spoke as more allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and new allegations against Minnesota Senator Al Franken came to light.
Gillibrand also said Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after having a relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. This comes a year after Gillibrand said she was “honored” to have the former Commander in Chief campaign on her behalf.
