RWC News “There Is A Certain Code”: Females On Capitol Hill Admit There Is A List

Female interns, staffers, and lawmakers are finally opening up about the risks.

Female lawmakers, staff, and interns have a secret “creep list” of men on Capitol Hill who are known for allegedly making sexual comments and gestures or seeking physical relations with younger employees or interns.

“Amongst ourselves, we know,” a former Senate staffer told CNN of the lawmakers notorious for their inappropriate behavior. “There is certain code amongst us, we acknowledge among each other what occurs.”

The informal roster has been spread by word of mouth, CNN reported Tuesday. It’s weighted heavily with the names of House representatives, which has more members than the Senate.

The news outlet spoke to more than 50 lawmakers and current or former congressional staffers, all who said they experienced sexual harassment on the Hill or knew of someone who had.

The House Administration Committee on Tuesday is holding a hearing on preventing sexual harassment in Congress after high-profile allegations against celebrities and politicians have surfaced in recent weeks.
