According to Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller, a human resources scandal with Congress is about to explode and over a dozen Congress resignations are coming. Rosiak made this announcement on Friday.
Daily Caller reporter Luke Rosiak tweeted:
“Congress' human resources scandal is just getting started. I anticipate we will see the resignation of more than a dozen House members over harassment and secret settlements, and soon.”
He followed that up with another tweet, doubling down on his prediction:
“Mark my words, the House is going to be rocked in the coming 72 hours. Tick Tock.”
Rosiak broke the story last week that Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) reached a settlement with a former congressional aide. It was reached after she reported being sexually assaulted at a major campaign donor's business.
The first congressman to go down as a result of sexual misconduct was Democrat Rep. John Conyers. He resigned when the accusations against him kept getting deeper and deeper.
Here are other politicians facing sexual misconduct allegations, per Daily Caller:
- Democrat Rep. Alcee L. Hastings (FL) — The Treasury paid $220,000 to settle allegations against him made by a former congressional staffer that claimed he “touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job.”
- Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold (TX) — The congressmen announced on Thursday that he was "retiring" after former staffers accused him of making "sexually graphic jokes" and berating his aides. He previously settled a sexual harassment claim made by an employee in 2014.
- Democrat Rep. Ruben Kihuen (NV) — Multiple women have accused the Pelosi-backed congressman of sexual harassment.
- Democrat Sen. Al Franken (MN) — Franken announced that he would resign last week after multiple women accused him of sexual assault. Franken has still not resigned despite his promise to do so.
- Republican Rep. Trent Franks (AZ) — Resigned after he reportedly made women uncomfortable by asking them to be a surrogate mother.
Will Rosiak's prediction come true Monday? Stay tuned for further details.
