Considering the recent sexual abuse cases emanating from Washington, DC, former victims are coming together and demanding that their voices be heard.
Female victims of Bill Clinton and Al Franken will be arriving in Washington, DC for a news conference, where they are demanding the resignation of Senators Al Franken (D-MN), and John Conyers (D-MI), according to a Twitter post from Melanie Morgan. “National Press wire (owned by Libs) refuse to publicize this event at Nat’l Press Club,” she added.
Senators Franken, Conyers, and Joe Barton (R-TX), are all accused of sexual misconduct, including making unwanted sexual advances to their female staff. Many of these alleged victims will be joining together at the National Press Club to voice their concerns.
Others present will include women who claim they have been abused by former-President Bill Clinton, including Juanita Broaddrick, who claimed the former-President raped her. Others include Paula Jones, who settled a sexual harassment suit with Bill Clinton before her lawsuit went to trial, and Leslie Millwee, who said she was stalked and attacked three times by the former-President.
Melania Morgan — a Washington-based ethics lawyer, head of Media Equalizer, and former-alleged victim of Sen. Al Franken — organized this event where she, too, will share her experience with Mr. Franken.
“He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimidating,” Morgan claims. “I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.”
The women, in addition to calling for the resignation of these three members of Congress, will also be demanding an end to the Capitol Hill practice of secretly settling various harassment claims with taxpayer money.
Recent reports revealed that the congressional Office of Compliance paid out over 17 million dollars in taxpayer-funded settlements in over 264 cases over the last 20 years, according to The Washington Post. Many of those 264 cases of workplace violations included sexual misconduct settlements – all of which required the alleged victim to sign a confidentiality agreement.
Many others have accused the current political establishment of keeping these scandals under wraps. Trish Regan tweeted a segment on Fox News where she criticized many top Democrats for doing their best to hide these accusations.

Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, (D-NY), Diane Feinstein (D-CA), and Reps. Jackie Speier, (D-CA) Kathleen Rice (D-NY), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) and Melanie Sloan, head of the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Ethics & Responsibility, were invited to attend the event. At present, no one has accepted the invitation.
Alleged sexual assault victims of former-President Bill Clinton are holding a press conference about the rash of sexual abuse claims coming out of Washington. Should there be zero tolerance for sexual harassment?
Other speakers at the event include Alveda King, niece of the late Martin Luther King Jr., and radio talk show host Blanquita Cullum.
As the mainstream media, as well as the prevailing political establishment, continue to do their best to cover-up these stories, it’s unlikely that these women will allow themselves to be silenced.
