Yes, the idiocy runs deep with this one…If Wilson believes Hastings and Hastings is innocent then why did he pay his accuser a whopping $220,000 using your tax dollars! Did he just settle because it was easy to just pay her off using someone else’s money?

The double standards with this are just HUGE!

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson said she believes Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings and not the former congressional staffer who accused Hastings of sexually harassing her.

Congress’ Office of Compliance settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with the former committee staffer (pictured below), Republican Winsome Packer, for $220,000 after she accused the Democratic congressman of making sexual advances, touching her and threatening her job. The settlement Packer received, which was first reported by Roll Call, was issued in May of 2014.

Rep. Wilson said she supports Hastings in spite of the accusations against him. “I believe him,” she told the Miami Herald.

So she believes him because he’s her Dem. co-worker…she wants it both ways. A total clown…
