According to an explosive report in the Huffington Post, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) fired his communications director because of allegations of improper sexual relations with his staffers.

Huffpo investigative reporter Yashar Ali tweeted about the bombshell report Friday.

“Chuck Schumer’s longtime communications director Matt House was forced out last November after it was revealed that he had inappropriate sexual encounters with junior staffers leading some to feel uncomfortable,” Ali reported.

Ali cited two sources who said that House had been fired after the sexual encounters, ending a tenure as the Democratic leader’s communications director that had lasted almost six years.

The report was confirmed by a statement from Schumer’s office.

“Upon learning that he had inappropriate encounters within the office and that it was making some staff uncomfortable,” the statement read, “he was asked to leave.”

House also appeared to confirm the report in a statement texted to Ali.

I absolutely loved my time working in the Senate and it was the honor of my life. I deeply regret the mistakes I made on the number of occasions when I had too much to drink, and I apologize to anyone who was affected by my behavior. I have always respected all of my colleagues and I was horrified to learn that I made anyone feel uncomfortable. In the past three months, I’ve stopped drinking and I’ve committed to making myself a better colleague and person.

House worked as the communications director on Joe Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign.

No formal complaints were made against House over the sexual encounters.

    My God. Will wonders ever cease. Huffpost is writing a true story and not some made up fabrication fake news.

    They are already having their sexual abuse going on and will always have it going on because they don’t care what the Democrats do it is only when they are lying about President Trump or the Republicans. So yes very surprising that they would print this. Schumer is just using it to his means.

    Don’t just assume it’s true…truth is a word that just doesn’t fit with our political world. Hell, Gov. Northam apologized for being in a picture with black face and KKK outfit one day, then he turned around and said it wasn’t him in the picture….
    TRUTH??? It’s subjective and always subject to change…politicians’ prerogative

    Agree though that this story DOES seem to fit the landscape…but never assume truth until it’s proven beyond a shadow of a doubt!

      Oh PULLEEEZZZEEEE! The doofus did not fight the allegations….and even APOLOGIZED for his drunken behavior. (Typical “sidestep,” trying to blame it on the booze instead of himself.) And as always, vowed to be a better person. Our government REEKS of losers like this.

    Matters which are consensual, and which occur after working hours, should not lead to anyone being disciplined! Apparently this man was picking on female staffers, after drinking too much. That is a different matter, and it is good that he left and is trying to amend his bad ways!

      The article didn’t say one person but said it made some uncomfortable. Unless you think the Huff is faking the news? Then you have to ask why since they are joined at the hips with the demo party?

    What was left out of the HuffPo report? The real reason for House’s firing! Chucky was insanely jealous that House was not sexually harassing him. Congress hath no fury like a Schumer scorned!

    Is Chuckie Schemer getting rid of this guy in order to “virtue signal” his dhimmi creds?

    It figures, make sense with good old Chucky boys, why weren’t any charges made because he’s liberal leftist socialist who works for Chuck Schumer. Charges should have been made if there was cause.

    I’ll wait for the movie to come out to make my decision! And Chuckie will still be collecting his retirement on my dime ….. that SUX!

    If a key Republican had this going on the liberal media would be blasting it over every newscast, every newspaper, every web site and calling for resignation. With Chuckie, he fired him after he learned it was happening – it took SIX YEARS to figure it out. And it is being called “made to feel uncomfortable” not sexual abuse or sexual discrimination. Come on CNN. If you really had a sense for news you would have had this story long before you covered an early morning SWAT like FBI raid after an improper tip.

    So House says in his “apology” he has always respected all of his colleagues. Sexual harassment must be the Democratic version of respect. And Chuckie is obviously a little slow on the uptake if it took him 6 years to figure this out.

    If the guy worked for Biden, that says a lot. Biden probably taught him everything he knows!

      He was probably satisfying Chuckie.

    In Chuckie’s house office, then he is as guilty as the staffer. Another reason to throw the bum out, as if we actually needed more reasons to get rid of him. Chuckie Scummer.

    It’s ok, he is a Democrat – common practice – and Schumer knows nothing.
