Lawsuit Alleges Sexual Harassment, Discrimination Against Males At DHS Under Napolitano

'Favourite': A lawsuit has claimed that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (right) gave Dora Shriro (left) a promotion over more qualified men due to their 'long-standing relationship'

Homeland Security is a joke.   They’re so politically correct they refuse to acknowledge Islamic terrorism as a threat, they’re zeroing in on American citizens (pro-gun, pro-life, pro-limited government) as potential “terrorists” simply because of their religious and political beliefs, and now they’re reportedly acting like they’re in a frat house on the job.

Raf Sanchez reports at The Telegraph:

Janet Napolitano, who was handpicked by President Barack Obama to defend America’s borders, allegedly allowed a female subordinate to terrorise some of the country’s most senior security officials while moving less-experienced women to top roles.

The lawsuit alleges that Suzanne Barr, Miss Napolitano’s chief of staff at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), would regularly carry out “sexually offensive” behaviour intended to “humiliate and intimidate male employees”.

On one occasion Miss Barr allegedly called a male staffer in his hotel room one a work trip and screamed sexual abuse down the phone at him, telling him she wanted to perform oral sex on him.

In the spring of 2009, Miss Barr was said to have “removed the entire contents of the offices of three male employees, including nameplates, computers and telephones, to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters”.

According to court documents she also snatched one special agent’s work Blackberrry and used it to message the man’s female supervisor with a message claiming that “fantasised” about her.

“Barr also created a frat-house type atmosphere that is targeted to humiliate and intimidate male employees,” according to the legal complaint. “Further, Barr promoted and otherwise rewarded those male employees who play along with her sexually charged games.”

But the problem goes beyond Barr.  The suit also alleges that Janet Napolitano promoted a woman with whom she had a “long relationship” over better-qualified males:

Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano is facing a mega lawsuit from an official who claims she gave a less-qualified woman with whom she has a ‘long-standing relationship’ a job over him.

The suit also accuses Napolitano of turning the department into a female-run ‘frat house’ where male staffers were routinely humiliated and on the receiving end of ‘sexually charged games’.

James T. Hayes Jr., a special agent in charge of New York City investigations for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, filed the lawsuit in Washington, the New York Post reported.

He claims Napolitano favoured Dora Schriro, who had worked as director of the Arizona Department of Corrections when Napolitano was governor of the state, for a job due to their relationship.

Hayes first worked as a border patrol agent in 1995 and then served as director of ICE Detention and Removal Operations in Washington, DC, but was demoted after Napolitano’s appointment, he claims.

In February 2009, she appointed Schriro as a ‘special adviser’ and began pushing him out of meetings, the lawsuit says.

Hayes claims that Schriro, who is now commissioner of the city Department of Correction, was not as qualified him for the role as she did not have as much law-enforcement experience.

‘Schriro did have experience, however, working with Secretary Napolitano,’ it writes. ‘Schriro enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the secretary.’

The lawsuit does not outline the exact nature of the relationship between Napolitano and the woman she brought with her to Washington from Arizona.
