Congressman Blake Farenthold from Corpus Christi, Texas posted as farenthold on Flyertalk. The
‘last activity’ in his profile shows he continued to check the site while a Member of Congress. I did meet Congressman Farenthold once, at the inaugural EVA Air “Hello Kitty” flight to Houston.
From his posts online, it’s not much of a surprise he’s caught up as the latest Member of Congress in sexual harassment allegations.
Back in 2015 he was sued by his former communications director stating she was fired for complaining about his sexual comments towards her. In response he claimed,
- he finds redheads attractive, though denied staff have to be “on redhead patrol” to keep him out of trouble.
- he did tell staff about being propositioned for a threesome, but denied the woman suggesting it was a lobbyist.
- he did not have sexual dreams about the former staffer suing him.
It turns out he used $84,000 in taxpayer money to settle the suit.
Here were some of his Flyertalk.com contributions:

I get upgraded. It’s my seat. I can give it to my wife if I like, or if I’m traveling alone the hot redhead in 12B in hopes of……
’92 LHR-ORD AA in F (After a week in SVO) FA thought after 4 vodka shots (they were serving caviar) I’d had enough and cut me off for the rest of the flight. She said she’d get in trouble if I appeared over served at customs. At 250 lbs and a week in Russia, 4 vodkas wasn’t even a good start on being over served..
The Only meal to eat at a hotel is breakfast.
Just say no to chains.
The concierge is your friend and always deserves at least a $10 tip for a good restaurant recommendation
When someone comes to your office from out of town, always invite them to dinner so they don’t spend the evening alone at their hotel.
Never room service.
Hotel bars are for cocktails only …unless you are single and looking (or are in Las Vegas where what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas )
No PF Changs in my hometown so it’s not a “chain” and their “bar” is more like a counter for food than drinking bar.
5 star hotels, especially in Europe
Room service when hungover
$10 is not nearly enough for a concierge at a hotel you visit more than 3 times a year.
