From The National Journal:
The House’s independent ethics office is looking into sexual-harassment claims leveled months ago against Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., the Wall Street Journal is reporting.
Citing sources familiar with the inquiry, the investigation, which began at least a month ago, is being conducted by the independent Office of Congressional Ethics and not the House Ethics Committee.
A lawsuit, filed against Hastings on March 7 by the conservative group Judicial Watch on behalf of Helsinki Commission staffer Winsome Packer, alleged that the congressman sexually harassed Packer over the course of more than two years and threatened retaliation if she tried to report it.
Read the whole thing here. At least Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats got a two-day break from a sex scandal involving one of their members. As goes Weiner, so goes Hastings?
