Kara Medrano, an ex-employee of Central Basin Municipal Water District and who formally worked for Rep. Linda Sanchez, has filed a lawsuit claiming she was fired for reporting that Sanchez and her staffers were guilty of covering up campaign violations.

Sanchez is the top Democrat on the House Ethics Committee.

Medrano is suing for $2.5 million and her job back.

Sanchez, through her staffer Alex Nguyen, said Medrano’s claims are “baseless allegations.”

The lawsuit is centered around staffer Yvette Shahinian conducting campaign work on official time, which is a violation of federal law.

The lawsuit claims that Medrano complained about it, then said that Sanchez “expressly told” Medrano that she was not allowed to speak to anyone.

Two weeks later according to the complaint, Shahinian told everybody to delete emails and documents regarding fundraising.

HMG-CN exclusively reported that Medrano was also allegedly involved in a sexual harassment incident with current Central Basin President Robert “Bob” Apodaca four years ago.

Shockingly, Medrano is Apodaca’s current wife’s daughter from a former marriage.

HMG-CN was first to report that Apodaca settled a sexual harassment lawsuit last year.

The lawsuit was first reported by law360.com and picked up by Politico and Brietbart.

Breibart put a link to Apodaca’s sexual harassment lawsuit on his website.
