Former Republican Congresswoman Candice Miller said that when she served as chair of the Office of Compliance, she believes she rejected all requests to settle sexual harassment claims, BuzzFeed reports.

Why it matters: Miller said she remembers rejecting a request for $27,000 to settle a harassment claim, which "appears to match" the settlement by Rep. John Conyers in 2015.
