What a guy. Let’s all just give him a big round of applause, shall we?

He's just mad this info came out. Why couldn't he have paid it himself when it originally happened?

Oh sure, now that he's been caught with the hand in the taxpayer cookie jar.

He's only paying back now, because he got caught

Bingo. He’s absolutely full of crap.
The media needs to find out who *else* used taxpayer money to settle sex harassment claims!
