THE RECKONING? Rumor Has it Reporters May Reveal 40+ Congressmen Guilty of Harassment

In many ways, this week has been a banner week for Congress in tackling sexual harassment.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is resigning over numerous harassment allegations. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is retiring over numerous allegations. Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) announced his retirement on Thursday over an ethics investigation. And Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) will face an ethics probe over harassment allegations.

Rumor has it on Capitol Hill, though, that this is just the beginning of the reckoning in Congress over sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Michael Trujillo, a Democratic strategist, tweeted on Thursday that CNN and The Washington Post are working on a story “exposing 20-30 congressional members [for] sexual harassment.”

Neil King, a former Wall Street Journal journalist, added to that tweet by saying “the total may top 40.”

If true, the work of these journalists may lead to a rush of resignations, retirements, and special elections in both the House and the Senate.
