What the John Conyers case tells us about how sexual predators are treated in Congress

Late last week the Washington Post added a little more fuel to the “Jesus Christ, Men Really Suck” bonfire when they reported that Congress’s Office of Compliance has paid out approximately $17 million over the past 20 years in unreported settlements to 264 federal employees, many of whom, you can be sure, collected those settlements […]
