The Democrat Media Operation known as ‘Politico’ wants its readers to know that the $17 Million Taxpayer Fund that congressmen have been using to payout sexual harassment and discrimination claims… actually isn’t a big deal. You see, “it’s complicated.”
But the reality of what critics lambaste as a sexual harassment “slush fund” is more complicated, like much about Congress’ policy for handling harassment complaints. The money covers all sorts of settlements, just not for sexual harassment, and some lawmakers cut their own side deals with accusers.
What this tells me is that the payoffs for sexual misconduct were primarily on the Democrat side. The Democrat Media Complex has a pattern of simplifying scandals that hurt Republicans into tight soundbites, but working overtime to make Democrat scandals mundane, complicated, and products of Republican conspiracies. “Donald Trump colluded with Russia!” versus “Republicans attacked Hillary Clinton for alleged use of a private email server while Secretary of State.”
