Rep. Blake Farenthold Resigns

Representative Blake Farenthold, against whom ADH filed suit on behalf of former staffer, Lauren Greene, resigned from Congress last week. ADH attorney Les Alderman brought a lawsuit on Ms. Greene’s behalf against Farenthold for sexual harassment and retaliation he and his office subjected her to while she served as his communications director.  Originally, Farenthold said he would serve out his term and not seek re-election in the fall. He has said little about his unexpected resignation. For a longer take on the story see this article.
