The young staffer was "greeted with a member in a towel", Comstock told fellow lawmakers, who "invited her in" before committing the offense.
Two female lawmakers, one Republican and one Democrat, shared stories at a hearing Tuesday about male members of Congress who engaged in sexual harassment, though they declined to name them.
Speier, a Democrat who has gone public with her own allegations of sexual assault while she served as a Hill aide decades ago, testified before the panel Tuesday that two now sitting members of Congress - one Democrat, one Republican - have "engaged in sexual harassment" but have not yet been reviewed.
Speier did not name either of the lawmakers.
Stories of sexual harassment and gender hostility are continuing to come to light in various industries, including entertainment and politics.
House lawmakers on Tuesday joined together to discuss sexual harassment policies after a series of allegations sparked calls for reform on Capitol Hill.
Sexual harassment is a national problem and "Congress is not immune from this issue, " he said.
Speier's proposed legislation would change the House's policy and make sexual harassment training mandatory for members and their staff.
"The California democrat, who has shared accounts of her own encounters with sexual assault using the hashtag "#MeTooCongress", said her office has since been "inundated with calls from former Hill staffers subjected to inexcusable behavior and sexual assault. "All they asked in return was that we fix our abusive system and hold the perpetrators accountable", the politician said.
Harper said victims aren't always aware of the resources available to them. She did not know the identity of the congressman.
Last week, the Senate passed a bipartisan resolution requiring senators and their staff to take training to prevent sexual harassment. With few exceptions, every person said they have personally experienced sexual harassment on the Hill or know of others who have.
He called the hearing the first step in the House review of its policies on sexual harassment.
He said Congress should follow the private sector and adopt a quality universal policy.
But she also credited colleagues in both parties with willingness to undertake a "complex and at times uncomfortable" dialogue about deterring harassment and helping victims.
"With a universal policy, no employee would be without a written policy governing their conduct or unaware of their rights", said Byrne, who practiced employment law in Alabama and advised companies on harassment policies. "We can and should lead by example", Ryan said in a letter to members and staff.
