It turns out Senator Sleazy was a deceased Democratic war hero.
The unnamed lawmaker who told Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) he liked his girls "chubby" was none other than Sen. Daniel Inouye, a Democrat and Medal of Honor winner who represented Hawaii in the Senate for nearly 50 years before his death in 2012.
Inouye was IDed as the offending senator Monday morning by veteran New York Times congressional reporter Carl Hulse.
Gillibrand made waves over the summer when she revealed in her memoir and subsequent book tour that she had been on the receiving end of a number of inappropriate comments by male lawmakers during her eight years in the House and Senate.
She steadfastly refused to name names, drawing criticism from some pundits and interviewers.
Perhaps the most obnoxious comment she reported hearing came during a time when she was trying to lose weight. "Don't lose too much weight now. I like my girls chubby!" one male lawmaker told her as he squeezed her waist, she wrote.
That was reportedly Inouye. The Times report came from anonymous sources, and Gillibrand's office would neither confirm nor deny that he made the comment.
