Ex-aides claim congressman made them servants
Four former staffers of Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA) say he and his wife, Flanna, used them as servants and were often told to run personal errands for them, reports Politico.
The details: Aides say they were often made to pick up clothing, care for the family dog, go grocery shopping, chauffeur Garrett's daughters and other trivial tasks outside of their job descriptions — fearing that if they didn't obey their careers would be in jeopardy. Matt Missen, spokesman for Garrett, told Politico the congressman feels no need to respond to "anonymous, unfounded allegations."
