The Creep List should be released [View all]

I have seen several stories about a 'Creep List'; a list of Congressional reps who feel very entitled. So much so, that many female staffers will not get on the elevator or be anywhere out of public eye with these members. The argument that releasing them is somehow damaging to relationships on the Hill is BS (IMO). What is damaging is not knowing.
Sen Franken has been accused of doing reprehensible things. Is he on the list? Without knowing who's on the list someone could make that assumption.
Is Paul Ryan on the list? Schumer? McConnell? Cruz? No one knows. We get some anonymous accusations, and without knowing if someone has a prior bad history, the public is left to fill in the blanks. Meanwhile, an innocent person can be assumed to be guilty and a perverted clod can continue to be a self-righteous jerk.

Also, any pay outs need to become public knowledge. No silence. And I mean, if they ever had paid out money for criminal behavior, before or during their time. There is no right to sit in Congress. It is a privilege to serve in the US Congress and the American people. The public have the right to know who (or what) they're electing
