    Sexual harassment complaints at State Department soar under Clinton, Kerry



    In a disclosure with political implications for 2016, the State Department’s chief watchdog reported Thursday that worker harassment complaints have nearly tripled inside the agency during the tenures of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry but the agency still doesn’t have mandatory training for all employees.

    “A significant increase in reported harassment inquiries in the Department of State over the past few fiscal years supports the need for mandatory harassment training,” the department’s inspector general warned in a new oversight report that reviewed the agency’s civil rights office.

    The report states that formal harassment claims rose from 88 cases in 2011 during Mrs. Clinton’s third year as America’s top diplomat, to 248 in 2014, Mr. Kerry’s second year as secretary. Hundreds more informal complaints were lodged during the same period.

    Last year, 43 percent of the new complaints alleged harassment or unfair hirings or promotions while 38 percent raised sex discrimination or reprisals, the report said.

    What is considered a Sexual harassment complaints ?

    For example, If I were to tell a female - "you look very pertty in that dress". could she file a sexual harassment complaint?

    Granted, a good many complaints were probally valid - but there is a tendency for some to "jump on the wagon"

    just thinking out loud.

    Just looks like to me the Clinton and Kerry have been unable to keep a watch on their agencies.

    Poor managers. And they both wanted to be president. Kerry probably still does. Clinton already has a repoutation as a tyrant, but still let her agency get out of hand.
