Rep. Barbara Comstock’s calm, deliberate tone and the stately Longworth House Office Building hearing room where she spoke belied the depravity of the story she told.
The Northern Virginia Republican said a current male member of Congress had a young, female staffer deliver materials to his home.
He greeted his employee clad in a towel.
“He invited her in,” Comstock said. “At that point, he decided to expose himself.”
Comstock doesn’t know her colleague’s name, but trusts the person who gave her the information.
Belatedly, society, including Congress, is coming to realize this abuse of power must stop.
