During a Congressional hearing on Thursday about sexual harassment in the workplace, one federal employee revealed that a former boss had brought a whip to work and claimed it was to “motivate” the black employees.

Gloria Lett, counsel for the Office of House Employment Counsel, testified to the House Administration Committee that “sexual harassment is a form of unlawful discrimination, just like discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, age and disability.”

Lett went on to reveal that she had a personal history of facing discrimination and being sexually harassed.
