The strangest part of this story is that the firing of this aide happened back in November, during the midterms. Yet only now are we hearing why this person was let go. Doesn’t that seem a little odd?
Top Chuck Schumer Aide Fired for ‘Inappropriate’ Behavior with Staffers
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) reportedly fired his longtime communications director after accusations emerged that he had “inappropriate sexual contact” with junior staffers, a report said.
Schumer aide Matt House was pushed out of his high-powered position without explanation last November. Now, a spokesperson for the senator has admitted he was released for cause, according to the New York Post.
“Upon learning that he had inappropriate encounters within the office and that it was making some staff uncomfortable, he was asked to leave,” the Senate minority leader’s office said in a statement.
House released his own statement, exclaiming that he “regrets” his actions.
“I absolutely loved my time working in the Senate, and it was the honor of my life,” House wrote. “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.”
Democrats sure are lucky. Do you think the media would have ignored this if the aide worked for a Republican?
