The Democrats are off to a very, very bad start to the New Year.
The Democrats started off 2019 by shutting down the government over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) refusal secure our nation from unvetted foreign invaders by funding a wall on our southern border. In doing so, the Democrat leadership in Congress revealed their allegiance to illegal aliens (potential voters) over the safety and security of American citizens. They also revealed that they will do anything to stand in the way of Trump taking credit for building a border wall, all but ensuring he’ll be re-elected in 2020.
On Jan 23, the loudmouth Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (TX) stepped down as chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and as chair of a congressional subcommittee amid allegations, she retaliated against a former staffer who claimed she was raped by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation supervisor, Damien Jones.
Only one day after Virginia’s Democrat Governor Ralph Northam publicly announced that he would be okay with babies being killed after they were born, it was discovered that the Democrat governor from Virginia also thinks it’s okay to dress in blackface or wear a KKK hood, Northam’s personal page in his medical school yearbook revealed shocking photos.
Now, it’s been discovered that Chuck Schumer’s top aide, Matt House is on his way out for having inappropriate relations with junior staffers, the same behavior that got Democrat President Bill Clinton impeached, after he lied to a grand jury about having sex with a young intern in the Oval Office.
According to the Huffington Post -Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s longtime communications director Matt House announced he was leaving just after November’s midterm elections, the news was met with widespread bipartisan praise for House and his reputation for fairness. But some of House’s Senate colleagues were surprised to learn of his departure, given that he did not have a high-profile job lined up and that Democrats could regain control of the Senate in 2020.
House’s departure, however, was not voluntary. HuffPost has learned, through two sources with knowledge of the situation, that House was pushed out for allegedly having inappropriate sexual encounters with junior staffers, ending what was a nearly six-year tenure as communications director for the New York Democrat. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak to a reporter about the allegations.
In a text-message statement late Friday, a spokesman for Schumer confirmed that House was forced out after the encounters were alleged:
Upon learning that he had inappropriate encounters within the office and that it was making some staff uncomfortable, he was asked to leave.
I absolutely loved my time working in the Senate and it was the honor of my life. I deeply regret the mistakes I made on the number of occasions when I had too much to drink, and I apologize to anyone who was affected by my behavior. I have always respected all of my colleagues and I was horrified to learn that I made anyone feel uncomfortable. In the past three months, I’ve stopped drinking and I’ve committed to making myself a better colleague and person.
