Florida Congressman Rep. Alcee Hastings is being sued for sexual harassment by an organization called Judicial Watch on behalf of a former policy advisor named Winsome Packer. Packer worked on the Helsinki Commission, which Rep. Hastings served as co-chairman at the time.
The Washington Post reported that Hastings allegedly “made repeated sexual advances toward Packer, including asking her to accompany him alone to his hotel room; asking her ‘humiliating and inappropriate’ questions in public; and making unwanted physical contact, including ‘hugging her with both arms while pressing his body against her body and his face against her face.'”
Fred Turner, the Helsinki Commission’s former staff director, as also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
