Paul Ryan Sets Mandatory Sexual Harassment Training for House

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Tuesday that there will be a new mandatory anti-harassment and discrimination training for all House members and staff. "As we work with the Administration, Ethics, and Rules committees to implement mandatory training, we will continue our review to make sure the right policies and resources are in place to prevent and report harassment".

Last week the Senate passed a resolution requiring senators, staffers and interns to participate in mandatory sexual harassment training, as lawmakers and staff have grown increasingly outspoken about widespread predatory behavior on Capitol Hill. All they ask as staff members is to be able to work in a hostile-free work environment.

Jackie Speier testified there are at least two current members of Congress - one Dem, one Republican, both male - who engage in sexual harassment.

"There are two members of congress, Republican and Democrat, right now, who serve, that have engaged in sexual harassment", Speier told the panel.

A Republican congresswoman says she was recently told by a trusted source that a member of Congress exposed himself to a staffer.

Comstock said the name of the lawmaker she mentioned wasn't disclosed to her, but emphasized that naming names is an important step in promoting accountability and encouraging victims to come forward.

Following last week's resounding Democratic sweep in gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey, Ryan said that getting tax reform passed is crucial for Republicans who lack any major legislative victories since President Trump took office nearly 10 months ago. "They want the system fixed, and the perpetrators held accountable", Speier said.

"I'm not at liberty to discuss those cases, " she said, adding that increased transparency is crucial to combatting harassment.

Gloria Lett, counsel for the Office of House Employment Counsel, replied that such discrimination is illegal.
