The New York Times reports:
A prospective congressional aide has accused Representative George Santos of ethics violations and sexual harassment, according to a letter the man sent to the House Committee on Ethics and posted to Twitter on Friday.
Mr. Myers said in the letter that he was alone with Mr. Santos in his office on Jan. 25 when the congressman asked him whether he had a profile on Grindr, a popular gay dating app. Then, he said, Mr. Santos invited him to karaoke and touched his groin, assuring him that his husband was out of town.
Mr. Myers was charged last year with wiretapping in Ohio, after a small newspaper he ran published audio of courtroom testimony that someone else recorded and sent to him. Journalism organizations rallied around him, calling for the charges to be dropped in the name of press freedom.
Read the full article. Myers claims he worked briefly in Santos’s office before the job offer was retracted over his wiretapping case. Myers secretly recorded some of his time with Santos, which Talking Points Memo reported on earlier in the week.
That didn’t take long. https://t.co/IIAgZJVuzP
