How to stop sexual harassment settlements

Colin Hanna:
Taxpayers should stop funding hush money to silence victims of congressional sexual harassment
The results of such a policy would more than likely mean there would be fewer settlements. 

That would mean that the person complaining would also become known and have to testify in a court case if they pursued the matter.  It would probably wind up being a "she said, he said" case that would embarrass both parties and also drive up the litigation expense. 

Of course, nothing would prevent the two parties reaching such an agreement that did not involve taxpayer funding.  I suspect that is what would happen.

That would not be a bad thing since the person responsible for the conduct would have more incentive to avoid it in the future.
