Politics Talk. Alcee Hastings in the noose now? This WILL BE interesting!

Shit Is About To Get Real!

Alcee Hastings is a senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus.  They could get rid of Conyers because it was convenient.  He was old, he was slipping mentally and they wanted to make room on a powerful committee for younger members.

The same could be said of Franken.  Never mind the fact that the allegations came before he was in Congress.  That was just what the Democrats needed to pressure the Republicans on Moore.  Franken needed to take one for the he did.

But now.  What do they do with Hastings?  How do they handle this?  Even worse?  The news came out late Friday nite which means that it will be the top news all weekend whether the news media wants it to be or not!

Via Roll Call.
The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call.

Winsome Packer, a former staff member of a congressional commission that promotes international human rights, said in documents that the congressman touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job. At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, where Packer worked.

Hastings has called Packer’s charges “ludicrous” and in documents said he never sexually harassed her.
Story here. 

If precedent has been set then Hastings must resign right?

Or am I being played and this is the news story to put a pen in this whole thing and immunize the rest of Congress from further accusations?

Reliable sources says up to 40 SENATORS have paid out money to accusers.  That is almost half the Senate!  We could see a mass turnover sparked by accusations alone.

Watch this one people. 

One of two things.  Either women will continue to roll and all men should be afraid or they're about to hit a roadblock and this story will fade.
