KRIS TV in Corpus: Farenthold to reimburse taxpayers for sexual harassment lawsuit settlement

Rep. Farenthold says "I didn't do anything wrong"

KRIS TV reports:

“U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold says he's going to pay back the money taxpayers spent settling a lawsuit filed against his office by a former employee.

The four-term Congressmen tells 6 Investigates he was not given a choice in whether to spend his own money, or the taxpayers', when handling the suit in which former employee Lauren Greene alleged the Congressman, and key staff members, created a hostile work environment and then, retaliated against her when she complained.

The Greene lawsuit paralleled an investigation by the bi-partisan House Ethics Committee, which unanimously cleared Farenthold of any wrongdoing.”
