On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Representative Mia Love (R-UT) called on Representative Blake Farenthold (R-TX) to resign over his $84,000 sexual harassment settlement.
Love said that she is frustrated that taxpayer money was used in the settlement, and touted the STOP Act.
She then stated, “I think that he should voluntarily resign. Because — we — I believe we hold — we have to hold ourselves to a higher standard. And where he may not feel like his behavior was inappropriate, obviously somebody did. Obviously, people felt uncomfortable. And so, I think just — I think we need to self — make sure we evaluate ourselves. And again, this is about getting people to take responsibility for what they do and changing the culture that’s in Washington.”
