Politics Podcast: Congress’s Broken Culture



On Monday, lawmakers returned to Washington and immediately confronted questions about how they’ve handled sexual harassment in their own ranks. Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux joins the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast to talk about why the workplace culture in Congress is conducive to misconduct and underreporting.

The team also discusses the latest polling and the unknowns in Alabama’s upcoming Senate election.
