Alcee Hastings sued for harassment

A former female employee who worked for Rep. Alcee Hastings filed a sexual harrassment lawsuit on Monday against the Florida congressman.

In the suit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., the victim, Winsome Packer, said the alleged harrassment took place from 2008-10, while Hastings served as chair and later co-chair of the U.S. Commission on Cooperation and Security in Europe -- also known as the Helsinki Commission.

The commission was also named as a defendant in the suit, which was brought by Packer and Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. Hastings could not be immediately reached for comment.

FYI - Alcee Hastings is a Democrat. Curious how that always gets left out when the perp is a Dem.
