Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), testifying at a congressional hearing Tuesday, said two sitting members of Congress are sexual harassers, but she did not name them.
Speier recently disclosed that she was a victim of sexual abuse when she was a young staffer in her 20s and was forcibly kissed by a male congressional aide with whom she worked.
“In fact there are two members of Congress, Republican and Democrat, right now, who serve -- who have...engaged in sexual harassment.”
Speier said there are three steps Congress must take, including:
-- Requiring sexual harassment prevention and response training every year for both members and staff;
-- Conducting surveys to determine the scope of the problem;
-- And reforming the broken dispute resolution system, which "is not appropriate for the 21st century."
Speier explained the cumbersome process victims must go through when they report abuse..
