Juanita Broaddrick Should Be Invited To Join First Lady For State Of The Union Address

Last February, during President Trump’s address to the Joint Session of Congress, 66 female Democrats wore white as a sign of unity to honor women’s suffrage and women’s rights. These women have something else up their sleeve for the President’s first State of the Union Address on January 30.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) and the Democratic Women’s Working Group are planning to follow in the footsteps of the perfumed charlatans of the Time’s Up Movement at last Sunday’s Golden Globes.  All men and women from both parties have been “invited to join the symbolic protest.”  Speier said, “This is a culture change that is sweeping the country and Congress is embracing it.”
Sexual predation has been prevalent on Capitol Hill for decades; essentially going back to the days when Sen. Strom Thurmond walked the halls of Congress.  Thurmond, a Democrat, was elected to office in 1956.  From 1964 until 2003 he was a Republican.
Since 1995 a SHUSH fund has been used to silence accusers of sexual harassment.  The fund was a secret account maintained by the Office of Compliance; and its taxpayer funded.
According to The Washington Post, 235 complainants received compensation totaling $15.2 million between 1997 and 2014. That’s more than one settlement per month for 17 years and nearly $1 million per year. We, the taxpayers, have no idea on whose behalf we’ve been paying to settle these sexual harassment claims. That’s wrong.
If Congress wants to get serious about its apparent culture of abuse, it needs to address its cover-up culture.
More than 1,500 former congressional aides have signed an open letter to Congress asking them to mandate sexual harassment training and reexamine how the Office of Compliance handles harassment requests. Women legislators, interns, and staffers who have formed a whisper network centering on a word-of-mouth "creep list" of men who act inappropriately by wearing black for the SOTU in an act of defiance and resistance to President Trump solves nothing.
Knowing what these hypocrites have planned for the nation’s seminal moment that night, I sincerely hope the President invites Juanita Broddrick to join Melania in the First Lady’s State of the Union Guest Box.  They need to be reminded how they covered up the bimbo eruptions of Bubba Clinton and how one of their own, Hillary, stood silent.
