    Why? It's no different than a note on the high school girl's bathroom wall. Lots of those.

    You're basically saying women shouldn't be able to talk to each other about the inappropriate attentions of powerful men. Why not?

    A long time ago I dated a woman who'd been a Hill staffer back in the 1970s. There was a "list" back then too. She told me at the top of the list was one Daniel Inouye, a much revered and longstanding figure in the Senate. He's passed away now, or I would not mention such a rumor.

    I commented on the ldea of a creep list.

    you should never gossip with other employees about the misconduct of others.

    if you have a problem with said conduct, take it to your HR dept. otherwise, shut up.

    I do agree. If there are actual acts of harassment or assault, it should be brought through proper channels. Not just whispered in the halls. Thats how it gets worse over years.

    Rumors and heresay happens. But if a congress critter actually has done something, they need to move forward. Thats how a man like Moore got away with so many women, they kept it hidden.

    Are all the women in the world now supposed to leap to parade attention and shout "Yes Sir"?

    Who the hell made you so important?

    More than 50 Hill staffers and lawmakers told CNN that they have experienced sexual harassment or unwanted advances while working in Congress.

    "Amongst ourselves, we know," a former Senate aide said told CNN, referring to sexual harassers and their behavior. "There is a certain code amongst us, we acknowledge among each other what occurs."

    Its good that Congress is finally having a hearing on this regarding streamlining the reporting process. Hopefully they actually do something about sexually harassment on the Hill.
