    "The Senate spent more than $1.45 million settling workplace harassment and discrimination cases over the past 20 years, according to data released by the Senate Rules Committee on Thursday. The Office of Compliance (OOC) paid nearly $600,000 in claims stemming from senators' offices across a total of 13 settlements, according to the data.

    They also paid more than an additional $853,000 as part of 10 settlements in response to claims from other Senate-employing offices, according to the data." - Source

    This does not include the House nor any Senator who has settled an harassment suit(s) through his/her own personal funds. While many want to make this information public, those whom are part of the "old boys" network are working hard to keep it a secret.

    That is peanuts over 20 years. Bill O’Reilly had one settlement for 32 million.

    I am sure many of them have with their own money and we do not hear about them.
