Office of Compliance Releases Settlement Money Details



The Office of Compliance’s Awards and Settlement Fund has paid out $359,450 since fiscal 2013 to address six claims made against House-member led offices, $84,000 of which was for a sexual harassment claim, according to data released Friday by the House Administration Committee.

The OOC did not name any parties in the settlements, but Politico reported the $84,000 sexual harassment settlement was for a claim against Texas GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold.

“There is no place for sexual harassment in our society, and especially in Congress, and one case of sexual harassment is one case too many,” House Administration Chairman Gregg Harper, R-Miss., said in a statement about the release of the OOC data.
