Another Day Another Political Sex Scandal: Ethics Panel Launches Probe On Alcee Hastings For Alleged Sexual Harassment Of A Staff Member

Oh boy … here we go again.

A congressional ethics panel is looking into claims that Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) sexually harassed one of his staff members, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The investigation comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed by Winsome Packer alleging Hastings made repeated unwanted sexual advances and threatened her job when she refused him. Packer is being represented by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch.

Hastings called the claims “ludicrous.”

“I have never sexually harassed anyone,” the representative said in a statement sent to the AP. “In fact, I am insulted that these ludicrous allegations are being made against me… I will win this lawsuit.”

Hastings gave a more vague response in a recent interview, according to the Journal.

“Quite frankly your source has as much or more information than I do and I would suggest you rely upon them,” he said. “It would be impossible for me in a paragraph or a page or two or a tome or volumes one and two to help you understand the dynamics of these events. I’ll leave it at that.”

We sure hope this man isn’t runnin’ around threatening folks job for a piece of tail! We’ll keep watch of this one. Stay tuned!
