Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has fired one of his top staffers after evidence of sexual harassment towards junior staffers was revealed.
Matt House, one of Schumer’s top aides came under fire for “inappropriate encounters within the office.” House was employed by Schumer as communications director for over 5 years. There has been no lawsuit or formal complaint filed as of yet.
