GOP House Rep. Blake Farenthold To Retire Next Year In Wake Of Another Sexual Harassment Allegation

USA Today reports:

A Texas lawmaker under fire over a sexual harassment lawsuit, will withdraw from the March 6 Republican primary.

Mike Bergsma, chairman of the Nueces County (Texas) Republican Party, said he was told Thursday morning by U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold’s campaign team he will not seek re-election next year.

“It’s a damn shame,” he said. “He’s been an excellent congressman, and I’m sorry this has happened. One wonders whether anyone could have survived scrutiny that intense.”

CNN reports:

A former senior aide to Rep. Blake Farenthold has approached the House Ethics Committee to share a damning account of working for the Texas Republican, with the intent of describing the congressman as verbally abusive and sexually demeaning — and his congressional office as an intensely hostile environment that drove the aide to physical and emotional distress.

Michael Rekola, who was Farenthold’s communications director in 2015, described in an interview with CNN new details of the congressman’s abusive behavior. It ranged from making sexually graphic jokes to berating aides — bullying that Rekola says led him to seek medical treatment and psychological counseling, and at one point, caused him to vomit daily.

One comment from the congressman was especially personal. Rekola was about to leave town to get married in July 2015, when, he said, Farenthold, standing within earshot of other staffers in his Capitol Hill office, said to the groom-to-be: “Better have your fiancée blow you before she walks down the aisle — it will be the last time.” He then proceeded to joke about whether Rekola’s now-wife could wear white on her wedding day — a clear reference, Rekola said, to whether she had had premarital sex.

Farenthold last appeared on JMG when he promoted the far-right Seth Rich conspiracies during a CNN appearance “because there’s stuff circulating on the internet.”

      Really. Why wait?

        He swore a blood oath to really fuck the American people over and he wants to make sure he does it good before he goes.

  • bkmn

    Sashay away asshole.

  • Eric Lewis

    Next year ? Now seems more appropriate.

  • Tawreos

    “One wonders whether anyone could have survived scrutiny that intense.”

    So the problem is the scrutiny not the sexual harassment. I could survive the scrutiny, because I have not harassed anyone. I am willing to though if anyone has an opening in their schedule.

  • Keiffer

    Resigning yesterday would still have been too late.

  • PlutoAnimus

    The Nueces County Republican Party chairman is clearly more upset about Farenthold being caught than about the bad things he did.

    Republicans are such disgusting lowlifes.

    • William

      His district is very German and Czech Catholic. Be as kinky and twisted as you want, as long as nobody is talking about it. If your perversion is a topic on CNN, time to hang it up.

        Except there’s still the question of whether it will matter to the voters in his district. That’s not a given.

    • Tawreos

      Of course she could survive it, in their eyes she is she-demon anti-christ while he is just a poor Republican congressman with a load of sexual frustration.

  • Boreal

    Senator Franken should also be allowed to ‘retire’ next year instead of being forced out without due process. As far as we know Franken has not paid off claims of harassment with taxpayer money.

    • Reality.Bites

      Franken should either stay or go, depending on the facts.

      I really don’t understand this idea that we should be as bad as Republicans in dealing with things. All that will ever do is disgust our supporters.

    Good job, Mr. Arbuckle.

        “Other?” They need give us at least three choices at the bottom of the range as well. Like lousy, piss poor, hair-raisingly dangerous to life as we know it.

    • M Jackson

      Always remembering the girl on the left has “M” on her arm because she’s a minor and cannot drink.

      • Paula

        Ewwwww! The fact that I rarely eat bologna, that has now moved to I never eat bologna.

      • Nowhereman

        He must be in the “if you got it, flaunt it” crowd.

    • JCF

      With a girl marked “M” for “minor”. Rethugs hit on minors, because they know girls (and boys) just a few years older, will have wised up to their shit!

      Those jammies probably have a trap door in the back.

    That pic !

    • Paula

      I know. Does the blonde think that look on her face is sexy. Slutty straight girls really piss me off. Have more respect for yourself, tramp.

      • JAKvirginia

        As I’ve been told, the girl on the left has a ‘M’ on her hand which is ‘bar code’ for minor, so no alcohol. The blonde may be underage as well. Gives that pic a different perspective, eh?

        • Ben in Oakland

          Nope. Prettty much the same perspective.

        • Paula

          Yes, it does. I guess there aren’t a lot of jobs for young people in his district.

          • marshlc

            Yeah, I’d say lack of local employment opportunities has a lot more to do with the look on her face than her actually feeling sexy in that moment. Sometimes a job’s a job, and you do what you gotta do. I can’t imagine she was actually turned on by those two.

        • thom

          No. It means she is under 21. There’s a difference between fighting sexual assault and harassment and being Puritan and petty.

      • Tawreos

        She looks like she is trying to be sexy without touching either of the guys

    “I’m sorry this has happened.”

    Their use of passive voice is fucked up.

    • Butch

      “I’m sorry I did this?” Naw. Too straightforward.

      • Tawreos

        They have to think about the civil suits and don’t want an admission like that on record.

    • boatboy_srq

      Quite accurate, though. They ARE sorry “this has happened”: sorry that their cover is blown, sorry that their misdeeds got publicized, sorry that their Reichousness is now tarnished. They aren’t the least bit sorry that they inflicted unwanted attention/advances/aggression on their victims.

      Passive voice in these “confessions” is effed up, indeed. But it’s very, very telling.

    • BearEyes

      Sorry they got caught

    • clay

      I’m also suspicious of their use of past perfect– not sure it’s entirely done.

    • Tom239

      This isn’t passive voice. Happen(ed) is an intransitive verb in this sentence, used in active voice.

  • vorpal

    Is there anyone left at this point who hasn’t been implicated in a sex scandal?

    • Tawreos

      I wonder how many of them are so very thankful their lawyer put an NDA into their settlements.

      • Tomcat

        Most don’t even get an agreement or settlement at all and those are the ones I want to come forward.

      • Tomcat

        To me a settlement and a NDA are nothing short of prostitution,,, but that is just me.

        • clay

          Such is the double-standard that some survivors look at the NDA as way to protect themselves, too.

    • boatboy_srq

      They would all come out ahead of the scandals by simply admitting they effed up.

      But that’s not the Conservatist Way. Not the FundiEvangelical Xtianist Way.

      Their way isn’t what’s proper, or appropriate, or modest, or humane. Their way is, plain and simple, what they can get away with without being caught. It’s the preservation of the veneer of respectability at any and all cost. It’s the Spartan Ethic at it’s most basic – and most brutal.

      Every one of them will go on denying any impropriety until he has no choice but admit it. And every other one will tout his own faux righteousness as his peers fall around him – for as long as his own faults are hidden.

  • justmeeeee

    Cool, cool. Nueces County almost went for Hilary in 2016, so it’s likely a pick-up for the Dems, unless they figure a way to fuck that up (and they well might).

    He admitted to being a pervy, vile and absuive POS so why is he being allowed to retire next year? He should be forced to step down and do the walk of shame in front of the people that he sexually assaulted and psychologically tormented.

    • Tawreos

      Because he has an R next to his name and morally upright behavior is only important when they are talking about homosexuals.

      • AmeriCanadian

        And Democrats. Don’t forget about the big D.

He should resign today, not in March. Ball-less Ryan won’t say a damn thing either. They say this district is so red that it will never be a Dem pick up. But at least maybe it can be a human being pick up.

    Yep!!! Any man or woman who has not initiated or pushed unwanted sexual advances and unwanted sexual banter could survive that.

That’s inappropriate and unethical. Goddamned, why is that so difficult to understand?

    But it is unfathomable to me how victimizers do this time and again without anyone making a complaint; without anyone punching them in the face; without someone’s daddy imposing some shotgun justice.

    No one would treat me this way (neither personally nor professionally) without some full-on, full-frontal, newkyuler blowback. It would end up being a bad day for one of us.

    I look at Sessions, Kelly et al and those “serving” in the Trump administration, with the reports of his publicly degrading, demeaning, and humiliating them and wonder what kind of nutless cowards are enabling this serial rapist and predator to ‘run’ the country.

      How do they handle this in Russia?

    Farenthold has a face NOT EVEN a Mother could Love!!!

  • Tomcat

    Men, this is NOT your grandfathers congress anymore.

    • Friday

      Well, they used to just not have female aides on the floor, as I recall.

  • Boy Elvis

    The thought of Farenthold sexually harassing anyone — or having a sex drive at all, for that matter — fills me with a loathing so deep I can scarcely express it. Farenthold looks like what you’d get if you crossed toad DNA with a giant pile of decomposing pork fat, but his personality is far worse.

    Skanks, and the girls are not much better.

      Girls? It’s his male communications director who was vomiting daily.

    Next year? Fuck that. Resign now. Pelosi, GET HIM OUT. Not another taxpayer nickel into his checking account. What a disgrace.

    • The_Wretched

      While I’m not a Pelosi fan, Fahrenholt is a republican and she’s only the minority leader. Ryan is the asshole responsible for not booting Fahrenholt sooner.

    So, once again, when caught, the Republicans claim that thing they denied ever happened at all “is something everyone does.”

    • Tomcat

      Time will tell.

  • JWC

    why wait you fat sick pup

    • Friday

      Cause the Republicans want to do more damage before their administration is out on its ear.

      • JWC

        that is probably very true

    “Next Year”.

    Well, whenever’s good for you, Flake.

    Okay, here’s the list:

    Larry “wide-stance” Craig
    George “carry-my-bags” Rekers
    Ted “slurp-sniff-sniff-Haggard or Ted “Booty-Bump” Haggard
    Tom “turn-a-page” Foley
    Dennis “Wanna Wrestle?” Hastert
    Ralph “Boy-Pussy” Shortey
    Wes “boy-on-my-desk” Goodman or Wes “buckeyes-and-lies” Goodman
    Vitter the Shitter or Diaper Dave
    Blake “duck-pajamas 2-bagger” Farenhold
    Josh “fingers-are-for-sisters” Duggar
    Roy “touch-my-underwear” Moore
    Trent “mother-my-embroyos” Franks
    Donald “grab-em by the pussy” Trump

    Any suggestions?

    • Secure

      U got a lot

    • LeeCMH

      Ralph “Boy-Pussy” Shortey

    • R W C

      Josh “keep-it-in-the-family” Duggar

      (not an elected official but he was the face of the Family Research Council lobby)

    • Hank

      Donald “Pee on me some MORE” Drumpf!!!

  • Renfield

    Caused him to vomit daily? You mean at the sight of this repulsive pig? That alone induces a gag reaction. And, just saying, were I getting married and some piece of shit made those comments about my husband-to-be (or wife-to-be) I would have busted him in the mouth, for starters.

  • Mike Bergsma: “One wonders whether anyone could have survived scrutiny that intense.”

    One wonders if Mike Bergsma thinks all men are supposed to be boorish a-holes.

  • Snarky

    This is a first step. He won’t last the month.

    • MaryJOGrady

      I sure hope you are correct.

  • Snownova

    Is there a counter anywhere online showing how many GOP and how many Democrat politicians have been implicated in sex scandals since the whole #MeToo thing began?

  • wds

    It’s telling that folks want a Dem being accused to retire right now!!! And someone such as Mr. Ducky Pajamas gets to retire next year … and that picture? You mean the one with the M on the one girls hand indicating she’s under 21 and can’t drink … SMH What a dimwit douche bag … https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1808d682d6ed0122c5a1880dc689b81c3344851d83d293fa3645ea16ccf8fbd9.jpg

    OUT THE DOOR.

    ASAP!

  • Nowhereman

    He needs to go NOW. And all of them who used tax dollars to pay hush money need to pay us back. I’d like to see the list of these guys and their offenses, too.
