As more and more sexual harassment allegations come out against politicians, the question of how governmental bodies deal with these allegations has been raised. Reporter Michelle Ye Hee Lee has a story in the Washington Post about the convoluted processes Congress has in place for dealing with these allegations. Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal sat down with Ye Hee Lee to discuss how tax payer dollars are involved.
