One of the strongest voices advocating for a Trump impeachment, Al Green (D-TX), reportedly had sex with a drug-addicted employee in 2008, then sued her when she threatened to go public with claims of a hostile work environment and sexual harassment – stating at the time he “will not be extorted or blackmailed.”
Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller reports:
Lucinda Daniels, his onetime district director, claimed she suffered a hostile work environment, claimed sexual harassment and demanded $1.8 million. Green sued her, saying she was using their sexual relationship to shake him down at the behest of other unnamed conspirators.
“Daniels has threatened to go public with her complaints if the Congressman does not per [sic] her money. Green has done nothing wrong and refuses to pay ‘hush money’ just for political expediency. Green will not be extorted or blackmailed by Daniels. He will not be the victim of a shakedown by Daniels and her agents. Green demands vindication of his actions and now sues Daniels for declaratory judgment relief relating to her workplace allegations and her quest for money,” documents Green filed in federal court in 2008 say.
