Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the former chair of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, used $150,000 of taxpayer money to settle a wrongful dismissal suit from a former staffer, according to a report Friday.
The Washington Post reported that the former aide claimed that he was fired, in part, because he refused to focus his investigative work for the committee on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The settlement appeared on a list of settlements released by the Office of Compliance (OOC) on Friday. The list disclosed that the OOC oversaw the $150,000 settlement to a claim of veteran status discrimination and retaliation.
The former aide, Bradley Podliska, alleged that he was fired because of his refusal to focus on Clinton and because he took leave to fulfil his duties as an Air Force reservist.
