Former Congressman Blake “Ducky Pjs” Farenthold went right back to Washington DC Monday as the legislative liaison for the Port of Port Lavaca-Point Comfort, located in the district he represented until April 6 of this year. Seems the Good Ol’ Boy Network felt sorry for him and found him a job, despite the fact that he resigned in disgrace before the Ethics Committee was going to issue a ruling on a sexual harassment scandal and used $84,000 in taxpayer money to settle one of the complaints. Farenthold said he’d pay back the $84k, then said he couldn’t pay it back legally. Texas Gov Greg Abbott wants Farenthold to pay for a special election to replace him but Farenthold says, “Nah.” Seems that Farenthold suffers from terminal lack of shame and thinks his lack of ethics will be no problem in dealing with Congress.
