That's not the US Senate either.   That's the House chamber (albeit in a joint session).

I got training like that all the time working for the government. Must have been one of those laws they pass for the little people. Good to see they're going to do it.

Why is an employer paying for training???!!! should they have gotten this training (preferably through a private university) before applying for the job!

Does the sexual harrassment training include self defense lessons for female legislators?

Awesome! Do we get to pay for it? I sure hope so. Who gets the contract for the training? I bet those congress people are already invested in it.
 
2017-11-10 03:09:25 PM  
They are going to pass a law stating they don't have to... or they can send staff to it, instead... by next week.

I do believe there is medication available for that.

But how am I supposed to hit on all those hot senators?
 
2017-11-10 03:17:00 PM  
Yeah, teach them how to harass better, that a great idea

The "hot" Senators will hit on you. Except Roy. He's eyeing up your daughter.

For the sake of the interns they should put up those posters they use in prisons with the phone number to report sex crimes.

"See? We're doing something! Honest... we are! For reals even... We're totally on top of that. Oh geez, I shouldn't have said that, I'm sorry. See? I'm learning already! That's progress. So no more press coverage needed, K?"

Just wait for Roy Moore to get elected and he'll tell you all about it. Or, I guess the younger female employees will tell you all about it.
 
2017-11-10 03:51:26 PM  
Burlesconi going to be conducting the training?

An old joke, from the 1980s-ish congressional sex scandal:

Q: Why don't Congress members use bookmarks?
A: They prefer bent-over pages.
 
2017-11-10 04:01:43 PM  
I'm sure they'll be severely punished, possibly even unseated, if they fail to complete the training.

Do we need to bring Sexual Harassment Panda back from the Island of Misfit Mascots? We can totally do that.

"Who lives in the east 
neath a willow tree? 
Sexual Harassment Panda! 
Who explains sexual harassment 
To you and me? 
Sexual Harassment Panda! 
Don't say that 
Don't touch there 
Don't be nasty 
Says that silly bear 
He's gonna tell you 
What's right and wrong 
Sexual Harassment Panda!"

This wont distract from their impotent work. They will get an Intern to take it for them.
 
2017-11-10 09:35:41 PM  
Wow, Chris Dodd sure lucked out, leaving the Senate -and- the MPAA before all this harassment business went down...
 
2017-11-10 11:40:43 PM  
So, Congress can finally join the rest of corporate America then?  Good jorb, guys...
 
AOW
