WASHINGTON, D.C. – TEXAS – The sexual harassment case against Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold has been dropped by the accuser.

Both Farenthold and his former communications staffer Lauren Greene filed a joint stipulation of dismissal in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on November 18, 2015.

Greene had accused Farenthold of making inappropriate jokes in the office and sued him for damages.

“From the very beginning, I adamantly denied any wrongdoing and am glad to put this behind me and move forward,” Farenthold told Breitbart News in a statement. “Recent events have reminded us all that these are very serious times that require very serious leadership and my focus is on where it belongs – doing my job.”

Greene was fired by Farenthold’s office for making unexcused absences, and later filed suit – alleging that Farenthold told an inappropriate anecdote in the office about how a lobbyist propositioned him for a threesome. Farenthold also allegedly made a comment defending Greene when Greene showed up to the office with her nipples allegedly exposed through her clothing.

Though liberal media outlets were quick to repeat Greene’s claims, they did not hold up in a court of law.

Greene, an avid Clemson football fan, might even be relieved to get out of the Washington grind: her Twitter profile identified her as a “(Recovering) politico.”
