“Former Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) says he does not intend to pay back $84,000 in taxpayer dollars used to settle a sexual harassment case against him, despite pledging to do so last year.

The former congressman told ABC News on Tuesday that he has been advised by his legal counsel not to pay back the money used to settle the lawsuit, which became public last year and led to Farenthold’s resignation.

“I will say this on the record: I have been advised by my attorneys not to repay that,” Farenthold told ABC News. “That’s why it hasn’t been repaid.””*
