So Why is Bill Dix not resigning?

Sexual harassment by the Republican caucus under his leadership has been proven in court. He tried to keep the report on the incidents hidden. When they were opened they revealed little. Many staffers said they were subjected to harassment but were afraid to speak out. Kirsten Anderson, the staffer that did speak out was almost immediately fired by Dix.

Following the court case, Dix did not remove one of the worst perpetrators of the harassment, Jim Friedrich who has since resigned.

Add that to the $2 million that WE as taxpayers have to pay for Dix and his caucus's harassment and cover up and I am having a hard time understanding why Bill Dix is still in office. Especially considering the toxic atmosphere around sexual harassment that is rising in this country and Dix's deep involvement in this one.

Also considering that this was done within the halls of government at a time when all members of society, but especially those in elected office, should have been acutely aware of that sexual harassment would not be tolerated.

I spent plenty of time in work meetings being informed against sexual harassment and signing documents stating that I had been so informed. What Dix did appears to be an egregious violation and he should pay the consequences.
