Re “What are California taxpayers spending to settle sexual harassment claims? Good luck finding out” (sacbee.com, Nov. 3): Thanks for a well-researched article by Marjie Lundstrom. It shows that millions of taxpayer dollars provide hush money for government employees, agencies and legislators unable to control their impulses. This is a gross misuse of funds and shields perpetrators from consequences that would stop such activity. We need to follow Michigan's example; we want transparency not obfuscation.
