US lawmakers will no longer be able to force American taxpayers to cover the costs of their sexual misconduct claims.

The Senate and US House passed a voice vote on Thursday to force sex-hungry lawmakers to pay for their own misconduct claims.

For years this taxpayers were forced to pay the fines.
More than $17 million was paid out in settlements between 1997 and 2017 in over 250 settlements

But will the DC elites they make the list public?

The Epoch Times reported:

Members of Congress will have to pay out of pocket to settle sexual misconduct claims under legislation that Congress passed this week.

Lawmakers could previously use public funds to settle the claims.

The House of Representatives and the Senate approved the bipartisan measure on a voice vote on Dec. 13.

“Time is finally up for members of Congress who think that they can sexually harass and get away with it. They will no longer be able to slink away with no one knowing that they have harassed. … They will pay back the U.S. Treasury,” one of the House co-sponsors, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), told reporters after the vote, reported Reuters.

“We want to thank 1,500 former staff members of Congress who wrote a letter to us who made the case all too clear, that sexual harassment in Congress was a huge problem,” she added.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), who led the Senate legislation, said in a statement: “Today, the House and Senate came together to end a broken process that failed victims for far too long.”…

…According to a report from the Office of Compliance, more than $17 million was paid out in settlements between 1997 and 2017.

The money was paid out in over 250 settlements, the office said.
