US Representative Pat Meehan Denies Sexual Harassment Claims

January 24th, 2018

US Representative Pat Meehan Denies Sexual Harassment ClaimsAlthough US Representative Pat Meehan from Pennsylvania admitted that he saw his former younger aide as a “soul mate,” he denies the sexual harassment claims filed against him. The aide filed a complaint against him after he allegedly expressed his romantic feelings for her when she began a relationship with another man, and she failed to reciprocate his advances, prompting negative reactions from him. She received a settlement after the complaint was filed, and then left her job. Meanwhile, Pat Meehan participated as a member of the House Ethics Committee, assigned to investigate sexual harassment claims involving other representatives. This past Saturday, he was removed from the position, and, on Monday, an investigation regarding his behavior began.

Currently, sexual harassment and misconduct claims are rampant among those with high profile positions in government, entertainment, and many other fields. Although newly established programs hoping to dissolve sexual harassment issues in government and other industries continue to appear, so do the allegations against perpetrators who are heading the initiatives meant to stop the toxic behavior in the workplace, which could thwart the efforts before they even begin.
