A Republican proposal, which would add a provision to block federal employees disciplined for sexual misconduct from receiving the same pay raise as their colleagues, was rejected by House Democrats on Jan. 30.

Although 17 Democrats crossed the aisle to support the amendment, most voted to reject the legislation in a 216–206 vote that successfully blocked it. Republicans added the provision to a bill that would give a 2.6 percent pay raise to all civilian federal employees.

“During calendar year 2019, no increase in pay as authorized under this Act may be provided to any Federal employee who has been disciplined for sexual misconduct under chapter 75 of title 5, United States Code, or any other provision of law,” the proposal text by the GOP read.

How ironic. The Dems vote against a provision that blocks federal employees who are disciplined for sexual misconduct from receiving the same pay raise as their colleagues. The same Dems who got the #MeToo movement rolling.
