“There are many unconscionable aspects to this episode that Congresswoman Esty says she regrets, now, two years after the fact. No one, man or woman, should be subjected to the verbal and physical abuse and emotional trauma that this staffer suffered in her workplace. The response from the person in charge cannot ever be three more months more work at taxpayers’ expense, a $5,000 payout and a glowing recommendation for the next job.
“I don’t think we need an ethics investigation to confirm what we already know. Congresswoman Esty should do right by the people she represents and resign.’’
NOTE: Since this statement was released, Esty announced that she will not run for re-election, yet, it seems she has no intention to resign.
