Man, the hits just keep on comin'.


As well as President George H.W. Bush, President Donald Trump himself, and then this little nugget:

 

More than 30 people came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against an Ohio Republican state legislator who consistently touts his faith and anti-LGBT stances.

 

Representative Wes Goodman, who is married, resigned last week after being caught having sex with a man in his office.

 

@This comes as a surprise to many constituents because Goodman has consistently spoken about "natural marriage" being between a man and a woman. His Twitter bio describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027.”

Two women wrote in their affidavits that they believed Conyers used office resources to pay for the travels of women with whom he was having affairs. Another staffer described the task of driving women to and from the lawmaker’s apartment and hotel rooms.

 

The woman who claimed wrongful dismissal claims that Conyers would ask her to work with him in private rooms where he would allegedly start describing sexual fantasies to her, including encouraging her to "touch" his **bleep**.

Democratic Rep. Conyers Paid Thousands to Settle Sexual Misconduct Complaint

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) settled a complaint in 2015 from a woman who alleged she was fired from his staff because she rejected his sexual advances, according to a new report from BuzzFeed.

Conyers‘ office reportedly paid the woman more than $27,000 to settle the complaint under a confidentiality agreement.

 

Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, "repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public," BuzzFeed reported, citing signed affidavits.

 

“I was basically blackballed. There was nowhere I could go,” the alleged victim told BuzzFeed in a phone interview.

 

Another former Conyers staffer said she was frustrated by the secretive complaint and settlement process.

 

“I don’t think any allegations should be buried ... and that’s for anyone, not just for this particular office, because it doesn’t really allow other people to see who these individuals are,” the former staffer said. “When you make private settlements, it doesn’t warn the next woman or the next person going into that situation.”

 

This comes amid a slew of sexual misconduct allegations against numerous figures in politics, entertainment and the media.
