Conservative radio star Mark Levin sent a blunt rebuke Republican leadership’s way, calling on Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Paul Ryan to step away from their offices and resign.

It’s not going to happen, of course.

But it’s a message that conservatives around America have been sending Ryan’s way since shortly after he took over the House leadership slot in late 2015 — and McConnell’s way for, hey now, since memory serves.

This time, it’s all about the sexual harassment charges that have surfaced on Capitol Hill — the many, many allegations and accusations that have surfaced by various female congressional members, staffers and interns against seated congressmen and staffers.

Levin blames leadership for the atmosphere.

And he’s taking a blunt approach to what should be done.

“I’m calling on Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to resign,” Levin said on his recent show, Breitbart reported. “Not to be provocative or controversial, but if this sexual harassment has been going on — I’m quite serious about this — in the United States Senate, in the United States House of Representatives, and they are the leaders. The Republicans have controlled the House of Representatives since 2011. [They’ve] controlled the Senate since 2015. And Ryan and McConnell have been around a long time, and they know, they know who is who or they know about many of those who are who is who, they should resign. And I am quite serious about that.”

Again — won’t happen.

But it had to be said. And if the responsibility of an organization rests at the top — as Republicans are prone to preach about businesses and corporations — well then, sexual harassment on Capitol Hill, in the halls of Congress, does indeed take a blaming turn toward congressional leadership.
