EXCLUSIVE: Top NY Homeland Security Cop Sues Napolitano; Alleges Obama DHS Officials’ Anti-Straight Discrimination, Demands for Oral Sex – “J-No Appointed Lesbian Girlfriend, ICE Chief of Staff Harassed Male Agents”

By Debbie Schlussel

*** UPDATE, Sept 2, 2012: Suzanne Barr, ICE Chief of Staff, Resigns After Firestorm Started by Schlussel Story – Buh-Bye! ***

*** UPDATE, August 21, 2012: EXCLUSIVE: Explicit DHS/ICE Lawsuit Sexual Harassment Affidavits; More Harassment of Men @ Obama’s Homeland Security ***

New York’s top Department of Homeland Security cop is suing Department of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano in an explosive but heretofore unnoticed federal lawsuit alleging Homeland Security employment discrimination against straight male agents by Napolitano (READ the federal complaint) in favor of her lesbian girlfriend and sexual harassment of male agents by Napolitano’s handpicked Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Chief of Staff, Suzanne Barr. The lawsuit alleges that Barr demanded a male ICE Special Agent engage in oral sex with her and that she relocated three top male ICE agents’ offices to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters. All of the alleged misconduct was the behavior of Barack Obama’s hand-picked people running the Department of Homeland Security, who’ve created a hostile work environment for straight male agents, a story I recently broke on this site.

Many of the key allegations are stories I’ve broken on this site over the years, and the federal civil rights lawsuit gives more details. The 21-page federal federal complaint was filed in late May by New York Special Agent in Charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) James T. Hayes, New York’s top Homeland Security official. He was previously the ICE Director of Detention and Removal Operations, in charge of the deportation of illegal aliens around the country. It’s not every day that a federal official at that level files a lawsuit against the head of his agency.

Partners in Harassment/Discrimination: DHS Chief Janet Napolitano & Flamboyant ICE Chief John (Moron) Morton

The lawsuit further elucidates several stories reported on this site about discrimination against straight male Homeland Security officials in favor gay officials, including Napolitano’s girlfriend, Dora Schriro. As I noted, Schriro had zero experience in law enforcement, and yet, she was appointed ICE Policy Director and set the current Obama immigration enforcement policy of not enforcing immigration laws. (Schriro, who made a mess of Arizona’s prisons and empowered violent prisoners against prison guards, is now making a mess of New York’s prisons, a cushy job Napolitano got her so she could be close to a sick relative in New York.)

The suit also contains confirmation of another story I broke on this site, the sexual harassment of male Homeland Security Agents by ICE Chief of Staff Barr, who is known as “Suzy ‘Stripper Pole’ Barr” because Ms. Barr jokes that a building structural support in her office is a stripper pole, and she constantly harasses male agents in the vicinity of the “stripper pole,” including, sources say, dropping items and demanding the agents bend down to pick them up. Barr was brought to the Department of Homeland Security from Arizona by Napolitano and installed as ICE Chief of Staff. She was previously Napolitano’s Chief of Staff in the Arizona Gubernatorial office and has absolutely no law enforcement experience. Agents say that this bimbo, Barr, is the person really running ICE (the Department of Homeland Security’s largest agency), not Obama appointee John Morton, whom Napolitano didn’t want in charge of ICE. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” books ain’t got nothin’ on this pervert-ette. The suit states,

Barr humiliated another male employee by calling that male employee in his hotel room and screaming at him that she wanted ‘his c-ck in the back of [her] throat.

It goes on to say,

Barr covertly took an ICE blackberry [sic] device assigned to a male Special Agent in Charge and set a Blackberry Messenger message to his female supervisor indicating that the male employee had a crush on the female supervisor and fantasized about her. These actions and others . . . were all taken to humiliate and intimidate male employees. . . . Barr promoted and otherwise rewarded those male employees who woulod play along with her sexually charged games including the three male employees whose office she relocated to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters.

With regard to Napolitano and her girlfriend Schriro, the suit alleges that Napolitano replaced Hayes with Schriro at meetings and in policy decisions regarding removal of illegal aliens:

Schriro was named as a Special Advisor to Secretary Napolitano on Detention and Removal Operations. . . . Schriro was not as qualified for the position Plaintiff had because of her lack of Federal law enforcement experience. . . . Schriro enjoyed a long standing relationship with the Secretary. Plaintiff believe that he was being replaced in his duties because of this relationship. . . .

Plaintiff was aware that Schriro enjoyed a long standing relationship with Plaintiff’s ultimate supervisor, Secrtary Napolitano, and that Napolitano was promoting Schriro because of this relationship, and not because of any relevant skills, over Plaintiff, who had far more relevant experience in the field.

Hayes’ lawsuit claims that he was repeatedly turned down for and/or jerked around regarding assignments and promotions that he sought within ICE and that this harmed him economically. He also claimed that when he complained about this he was retaliated against. He cites several investigations against him by the ICE Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) that he claims are trumped up.

I should note that one such investigation involves Hayes’ attendance at a San Diego Padres Major League Baseball game at which Hayes and another ICE official who is apparently his friend, the incredibly sleazy and dishonest John P. Torres (who used ICE funds to get his extra-marital girlfriends jobs for which they were not qualified, etc.), were sitting in box seats. (Torres is now ICE Special Agent in Charge in Washington, DC, because the sleaze and crap at ICE always rises to the top.) Hayes has his share of detractors, and several ICE agents complained to me about this incident, saying that government funds were used so they could fly to San Diego (where they say a convenient, phony “government meeting” was set up as an excuse) and that the box seats were provided to them either free of charge or at a significantly discounted rate, in violation of ICE rules. Hayes alleges in his complaint that he did nothing wrong, that there was legitimate “government business,” and that he was cleared in the OPR investigation.

Regardless of the veracity of either side of that issue, I have heard one thing universally from the many ICE agents and Homeland Security officials who contact me on a regular basis:

That Janet Napolitano and Department of Homeland Security officials running Immigration and Customs Enforcement discriminate against straight male agents (in favor of gay agents) and harass them. And that Suzy Barr constantly sexually harasses male agents in an open, consistent pattern and practice without any negative or disciplinary response from Napolitano or anyone in the Obama administration. (Several agents believe that Obama ICE Chief John Morton is bisexual and that this is part of the reason he allows this behavior and discrimination to continue under his watch. As I’ve noted, the man he appointed to be his deputy, Dan Ragsdale, is openly gay and harasses straight male agents regularly. When John Morton leaves ICE, Ragsdale will be running the show and many agents have questions about their relationship. As I also told you, Morton’s Assistant Deputy is lesbian Beth Gibson, for whom a new, waste-of-money government job was created so she could be near her girlfriend in Colorado, and ICE money was wasted so top officials could attend the girlfriend’s ICE Academy graduation.) All of these Obama officials and their cronies use ICE as their own personal harem, and straight males are the victims.

And this is why so many ICE agents plan to vote for Mitt Romney and cannot wait until the cretinous Obama incompetents running the agency are out. And it’s why, as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, morale couldn’t get lower at ICE under Obama, and its employees rank it near the bottom of government agencies. The lawsuit’s allegations only confirm that.

Stay tuned to this site for further developments.

Still Shaking My Head,
Stop sniffing little Jimmy’s jock. Unless you are some sleazed out Central American alcoholic road whore, he’s not going to do anything for you. Jim Hayes is a F-ing punk, a bully, a**hole, a jerk, and a condescending arrogant piss-ant. Little Jimmy has several nicknames…Purple Hayes being one of them because his ugly shaved head turns purple when little Jimmy is having one of his famous temper tantrums. Looks like a swollen grape perched on top of those teeny shoulders of his. ACE (Arrogant Condescending Egomaniac) – Little Jimmy got to where he is because of his sugar daddy Johnny Torres aka: Pumpkin Head. Yes, the same Torres that impregnated a subordinate while he was the acting Assistant Secretary of ICE. Some of us who had the displeasure of having to deal with ACE and Pumpkin Head thought that ACE must’ve had compromising photos of Pumpkin Head. Somebody, in an earlier post, nailed it when they said that ACE didn’t mind when he was benefitting from his “close relationship” with Pumpkin Head. Passing up numerous more qualified ERO employees in order to select his alcoholic friend ACE. ACE is the king of hostile work environments. He took it to an entire different level. All ICE has to do is bring up just a few of the hundreds of good employees that ACE f-ed with and they will tell a jury just what a motherf-er ACE is. Alcoholic Jimmy sitting at his computer at home…beer in hand…getting his “degree” from the on-line diploma mill, “Park University”. The guy is a joke, a clown and a despicable human being. If there is Karma, and God I hope there is, little Jimmy, aka: Purple Hayes, ACE, will have a thorny tree fall on him while he is being struck by lightning and rabid gerbils will rip his eyes out while he is dying. F-you Jimmy. I hope ICE puts the word out and people will line up to tell the world what a piece of dung you are.

Malicious Compliance were the words.

“I think if DOJ put up a ‘sign up’ list for those Hayes victims willing to testify – it would take months for the trial to finish. Trust me – they would not be found ‘not credible’.”

Back in the early 80’s we had an SCI in NYC who was an arrogant POS. Slats had him convinced that a 13 was in his future. He’d do things like ask a couple of guys in his squad to bring his paycheck when he was out sick, then report them for misuse of a GOV.

When folks complained he told them it was the privilege of rank.

One time he told folks if they didn’t like it to go to OPR. Next morning there were about 30 guys lined up outside the OPR office. He got 60 days on the beach.

SICKOFSACNEWYORK on August 9, 2012 at 9:32 pm


I’ll ignore the juvenile profanity. Read my posts VERY carefully: You’ll see that I speak about MY dealings with Jim; I can’t speak for anyone else, and everyone is certainly entitled to their opinions.

Regardless of your animus towards SAC Hayes, the simple fact of the matter is that I laid out a very compelling case as to the very rare nature of lawsuits of this type (i.e., a sitting SES going against the politically-appointed head of his parent agency) and the implications thereof; I also pointed out that there is, in fact, a concerted effort to develop and advance gays, lesbians, and black/Latin females, all at white males’ expense. If you don’t see this, you are either blind or a fool.

This foolishness is resulting in the rapid decay of the morale and base of this agency: When a class of individuals (in this case, white males, who, may I say, comprise a VERY significant portion of the agency’s race/gender make-up) feels that they have been effectively marginalized to the point that they would rather take out money from their TSPs and try to strike out on their own, branching off into outside employment opportunities, it can only serve to hasten the deterioration of this agency’s mission – who is doing the work if agents, who feel they have no chance at career development or advancement, are out opening liquor stores (yes, you heard right, liquor stores) or nutritional supply outlets, thereby putting their energies into those endeavors, instead of doing the work that should be done?

This is only going to get worse, and I don’t see any corrective action coming anytime soon. I agree with Bonzer Wolf – the FBI is probably reading this post and comments with glee, and slipping it to their congressional liaisons in an attempt to further demonstrate why HSI cannot be trusted with the nation’s business, and why THEY should be given increases in staffing, budget and a larger role in border security.

This disgusts me, as it should every decent, hard-working agent: we had better get it together, and fast, before the next 9/11 happens, and the blame goes squarely on us for a house that is now publicly apparent to be out of good order, and with a complete lack of discipline.

StillShakingMyHead on August 9, 2012 at 9:44 pm

I’m sure you are a decent Guy/Gal but you have NO concept of what ACE is capable of. And, since you called me out, I will take a moment to expose you and your ignorance about the SES. Members of the SES get “unlimited sick leave”? So do you. They earn no more sick leave than you and they do not accumulate more than you. And you wrote, “and get paid for it ALL upon retirement for unused balances”. No different than you. They don’t get “paid” for their sick leave but they do get to apply sick leave toward their retirement. Just like you do. “Also, SESs get a paid move to the retirement location of their choice”. Wrong. If they get moved by the government while they are an SES position…the government will move them to the location of their choice. No guaranteed home sale, just movement of household goods.
I’ve been on this planet a few years, working in prisons, detention centers, arresting aliens, releasing aliens…many crazy…some not so crazy but I would have to say that ACE(Jimmy Hayes) is the most rotten, soulless, self-absorbed, arrogant, dishonest, self-serving, piece of human excrement that I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. This snot nosed punk came out of nowhere and was selected by his sleazeball buddy, John Torres, as the Field Office Director of the ERO Los Angeles Field Office. ACE was ranked #9 out of 9 candidates and Torres picked him anyway. Torres passed over 8 ERO candidates and picked ACE. He went in…not humble…not appreciative but with an arrogance that I’ve not seen in my lifetime. He branded people who had forgotten more about detaining and removing people than ACE will ever know as “problems” and ruined their careers. There is an annoying set of rules called the “Merit System Principles” that dictate how selections and promotions are to be made in the federal government. Torres and ACE shit all over them. I could go on and on and on but I don’t want to waste one more minute of my time on that turd called Jim Hayes. He has no “balls” he has no courage and he is a coward. He should be in jail. He and Torres did what they wanted because the head of the ICE Office of Professional Responsibility (the Gestapo of ICE), Tim Moynihan ,worked for Torres and was not going to run afoul of him. Little Jimmy has just opened Pandora’s box and ALL of the things that he and his POS buddy, Torres, did are going to come to light. The legacy Customs punk, Tim Moynihan, better be worried too. All of the things that were reported to OPR and weren’t investigated by him and his storm troopers will now be investigated by other agencies. Like DHS OIG and the FBI. May a thousand fleas infest the nether regions of ACE, Torres and their evil spawn.

Vector on August 10, 2012 at 12:00 am

    And I too will be there!!

    Retired FOD on August 10, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Jim Hayes was elevated to a position of leadership within ICE ERO & INV not because he had the background, experience and education but because he was following John Torres so closely that if John Torres stopped short, Mr. Hayes would have found himself deep into John Torres’ inner sanctum. Mr. Jim Hayes never even served as a first-line supervisor either in the field or in INS / ICE Headquarters. Jim Hayes and John Torres travelled from Washington to San Diego, on the Tax-payers dime, to attend a Padres Baseball game. This was reported to ICE’s Office of Internal
    Affairs (OIA) but the Director of the OIA, Tim Moynihan, white-washed the investigation. Also while in ICE Headquarters, Mr. Hayes would detail his girlfriend in the Los Angeles Office for short details to ICE Headquarters in Washington. At the same time Mr. Torres was impregnating his mistress who was a Special Agent in the ICE Baltimore Field Office. Though I agree that much of what Mr. Hayes says about Janet Napolitano, the “flamboyant” John Morton, Susie Barr, Beth Gibson are mostly true, this is very much like “The Pot calling the Kettle black”.

Ahahaha – Vector is Robin Baker! Sweetness – you’re still, still mad you lost that bet to him, aren’t you? (We in LA, who hated you and thought you were an incompetent buffoon, BTW, loved that pic of you with your shaved head that is still around here…..somewhere) Wow – well, good luck in the Netherlands and, hell, maybe you can drive your wife to work in your G-ride there and not get thirty off 😉

You’re really, really smart, Robin, knowing the rules about sick leave and paid moves and all that – I mean, they should make you ERO Director, or Director – except, well, you might have to work more than 7:59 each day, right? You’d fix everything – I mean, maybe every male detainee would lose his penis thanks to your carelessness and incompetence, like that one fellow under your care who you shipped up to San Pedro and Bonales and Hayes had to release. Hmmmm – truth hurts? Where ARE all those guys who know SO, SO much about detention?

Now, go ahead, exclaim you are not him and rip Hayes some more – rip Torres some more – and then, please, just go away.

RobinIsAGirlsName on August 10, 2012 at 1:58 am

    You must be Mrs. Hayes !!!

    Vador on August 13, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    I can’t really say that I have much sympathy for Mr. Hayes for the following reasons:

    He seems to have had quite a meteoric rise in the agency from his beginnings as a BPA (probably GS5 or 7) in 1995 to a GS-15 only 10 years later. Having only about 2 or 3 years experience as a criminal investigator street agent in INS he subsequently became Special Agent In Charge of Homeland Security Investigations New York.

    Apparently, he began filing EEO complaints in May 2011 when he was not selected for the position of Special Agent In Charge Los Angeles and his lawsuit seems stem from that event.

    While the allegations of favoritism and sexual harassment might very well be true, I wonder if any of these allegations are contained in his EEO filings.

    Even if they are contained in the 2011 EEO complaint, why did it take so long. The reported events of discrimination and sexual harassment took place in 2009, some 3 years ago. If this GS-15 Manager had really been offended by that activity, why did he not take appropriate action at that time to report and curtail the activity.

    I might be a little cynical, but in my opinion Mr. Hayes was probably perfectly fine with things as they were until he didn’t get the position he wanted.

    This is of course just my opinion, and you know what the old adage says about opinions. I’m just glad that I retired prior to the formation of the HSI/CBP monstrosity

    Facts, only the Facts. on August 17, 2012 at 12:36 am

this is absolutely unbelievable!…..napolitano and nobama are despicable.

Dave on August 10, 2012 at 7:26 am

This has now hit the MSM – lead story on the Drudge Report. So much for the MSM ignoring the story. And the spin doctors at HQ are already in damage-control mode, blasting Hayes and his suit. This is gonna get fugly.

It’s the “Who Shot JR?” syndrome or, for your limited intellect, the “Who Shot Monty Burns?” syndrome. You really don’t know who I am. Just one of the hundreds of people still working or retired who were f-ed with by Jimmy and Johnny. Karma baby. Karma. More to come on Jimmy and Johnny and their violations of the Merit System Principles…

      Dolan is a joke Attache in Panama City, then to OIA HQ and got in with Morton, Parmer and the rest then right back to Panama again.

      Check the new DSAC in LA JM same situation. It’s all who ya know.

      BlueJaysAreCute on August 11, 2012 at 10:13 am

Hayes apparently was in border patrol (more akin to security than law enforcement), and then became an INS “special agent” whose primary duty was writing up and serving jailed illegal aliens with deportation paperwork in Orange county California. After the merger, Hayes went into Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) as that organization was more in line with his previous experience.

Eventually, Hayes got promoted to the Special Agent in Charge (SAC) position for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York City, with little to no actual law enforcement experience, and no investigations experience. Someone also mentioned that Hayes has a degree from Park University, some sort of online degree mill. With so little relevant experience and qualifications, and no level of accreditation, how could Hayes possibly get a SAC position? Answer: favoritism. Hayes seems to have no problems with favoritism when it benefits him, but then files a lawsuit when he no longer benefits from favoritism and it is being given to others. Mr. Hayes, how about advancing the traditional way, hard work?

King David on August 10, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    King David, go to hell.
    Tell that to Brian Terry’s family.

    Tell that to Leopoldo Cavazos Jr.’s family.

    Tell that to James Dominguez’s family.

    These are just three Border Patrol Agents – in your words, security guards – to die for the United States in the last few years. Shame on you, you cowardly fool.

    This comment sat forever – where are the other law enforcement officers not calling this loser out? Sad, sad, sad.

    RIP BPA on August 11, 2012 at 2:50 am

Let me preface my comments by saying that I’m not a manager, but a working agent. Since SAC Hayes came to NY in 2009, I haven’t had many direct dealings with him, but the ones I’ve had have been professional and friendly. I also haven’t heard much that was negative about him through the office grapevine, which is unusual for an office of over 400 agents where griping is a daily pastime. I don’t know what he did before he came to NY, but anyone who puts his career on the line like he did with this lawsuit has got to either be very confident of success, or else just totally crazy, and I don’t think he’s crazy. Given the numerous disgraceful allegations contained in the lawsuit (which I personally believe to be very credible, based on what I’ve seen in many years of federal service), I hope it results in a long overdue and well-deserved shakeup at ICE and DHS.

ICEd on August 10, 2012 at 12:39 pm

ICEd is really Jim Hayes. Nice try. If you are not, then lets just agree that your lack of dealings with him leaves you unqualified to comment on what he is.

SICKOFSACNEWYORK on August 10, 2012 at 12:52 pm

King David: Haye’s is BP? There you go, that’s the formula for disaster applying “cutting sign” wet-hunting techniques to a modern urban criminal environment. The Mob is laughing, so is Gotti, there’s a wrap song abou that too: “Nuffin ta worry’bout it’ be a shame, dat Mutha **ken ICE ain’t got no game” boom boom….boom ba boom.

Black’s and HIspanics ain’t taking over ICE neither, it has been tradition in both agencies to throw the house (fill in the blank)’s a bone once in a while. The militants don’t get shit.

SAC (of shit) Chicago had some tokens but they all been replaced by the white man, and the new white man, the Pride Man/Woman. So don’t worry “honky” ain’t no “darkies” taking over, just seems that way. As for the EEO, white man ususally gets settled, so this man Haye’s gonna get his second retirement package.

It’s the Black and Hispanic agent that file EEOs that get fought every step of the way by ICE. The “minority” population in management at ICE is actually very low, just Google the numbers.

One area ICE dont definitely discriminate is in the hiring and promotion of Clowns and assholes.

QTD on August 10, 2012 at 1:30 pm

What an embarrassment to our agency, and I mean Hayes. This guy was bitching and threatening a lawsuit from the day the new administration came in. Political appointees regulatory shuffle the deck with career employees when they come on board, Hayes wasn’t special, they could quickly see the guy was out of his depth. He had no business running ERO whatsoever, what was his background anyway? Some patrol, some agent, and a lot of time sucking up at HQ. Then boom, he’s the the FOD of LA and an expert? Please.

After all that he considers the SAC of NY some kind of a step down? He is seriously deluded. Someone on here said he must really have the goods or be crazy……well, the dude IS off. There are certainly some nuggets of truth in his complaint, but there was no conspiracy against him. He was just exposed as a foul tempered, poorly educated, intellectually wanting careerist. And even after that he was given the premier SAC in the entire agency and he complains. God help us all if this childish and immature man child ever gets anymore authority than he already has.

BTW, there is no gay mafia running ICE. No one would know Ragsdale was gay, he doesn’t wear it on his sleeve. Morton, Dinkins, Chaparro, Woods, Winchell most FODs and most SACS are all straight white men. Believe me, there is still hope for us yet. The bigger issue is cronyism, whether it is being drinking buddies, golf buddies, gay/lesbian buddies, Hispanic buddies…all of these people look out for their friends. If you simply bust your ass at work and go home to your family, you are out of luck, whether you are white, black, gay, straight or Latino. This agency has become all about the contacts, something Hayes exploited to the maximum. Seems like now he has a complaint but when he was benefitting from that environment all he did was enjoy the ride.

Hayes will be exposed for the unqualified, incompetent loser he is. If his suit shines some light along the way on the nature of cronyism here at ICE great, but he will get nothing. I’ll be here to check back in to say “I told you so” and eat crow if I am wrong. One thing I am not wrong on is the guy himself, Hayes’ own history will prove his undoing, and not the anti-white male conspiracy he imagines. Hayes is the one nightmare always cited by legacy Customs agents that I cannot refute about Legacy INS guys, he is the clearest example of someone leveraging their contacts to launch a career. And now a lawsuit….pathetic.

To little Jimmy and all 4 of his supporters.,
Little Jimmy, I KNOW you are reading this because your MASSIVE ego can’t let you stay away. You have a mental illness and it’s time you face up to it. It took a match strike to smoke you out you pathetic f-ing punk. You are the Colonel Jessep of ICE. Your legendary temper has reared its ugly head again you vindictive bastard. I’ll tell you who I am you psychotic piece of excrement. I’m the Tom Joad of ICE. Did they teach you about Tom Joad at that sterling on-line institution of higher learning, “Park University”? I’ll pause so you can check Wikipedia.
Back now? Okay. Wherever there is an arrogant unqualified friend of John Torres’ that gets a position based on friendship alone…I’ll be there. Whenever John Torres picks his little protégé’ Jimmy Hayes over more qualified DRO managers…I’ll be there. Whenever you seek to destroy another career due to your vindictiveness…I’ll be there. Whenever you want to do favors for your paramours at HQ (go ahead look it up on Wikipedia you reprehensible turd)…I’ll be there. Whenever you and your enabler, John Torres, want to commit gross violations of the Merit System Principles…I’ll be there. And so will every other person you’ve ever screwed over. And, unlike your Johnson, the list is long and distinguished. You are a hypocrite of the highest order to file this suit. I hope to God that ICE, for once, sticks to its guns and exposes you for what you are. A privileged crybaby who would still be making copies for a real agent in a SAC office somewhere if it weren’t for John Torres. The first time in your short and undistinguished (like your Johnson) career you had to work without Sugar Daddy John’s protection and you were fired. Boo hoo. For every word in your frivolous lawsuit, there is a person out there that suffered under your hostile work environment. Karma baby. Karma. Your colossal intelligence did not allow you to understand one of the basic tenets of leadership. If you are going to hold people’s feet to the fire, you’d better walk the straight and narrow. You didn’t and now you are going to pay for it.

This is nothing new, janet napolitana and dora schriro have a long standing history of this in Arizona. While working in Arizona State she had infamous open fueds with the current prisons director and when she became govenor forced him out of service. The state legislature then appropriated $250,000 to pay a consulting firm to recruit and screen a replacement as director of Arizona prisons. After many months they developed 02 finalists (one from CA DOC the other from TX DOC) when provided these cantidates napolitano rejected both and hired dora schriro via backdoor to assume the post. dora schriro had recently been fired from new york city corrections. they procedded to demoralize and destroy the Arizona prison system and set the stage for the longest prison hostage situation in national history. (Thats another story entirely). We joked in Arizona that napolitano was dora’s sugar momma and where ever nopalitano went dora would not be far behind.

Very amusing, but totally wrong. I hope you don’t jump to conclusions like this in your investigations, assuming you are a criminal investigator.

I’m definitely not him, but I’ve been an 1811 for a long time, and have seen a lot in my career. And regardless of “what he is”, the issue as I see it is the substance of his allegations, not him personally. If true, they are very serious, and need to be addressed for the good of the agency and our country, regardless of any bad blood between you, him or anyone else.

Stay safe out there.

If we ever; and I mean EVER, get ANY HONEST leadership in this country, They won’t survive past sundown.
I believe it really is THAT BAD…

Another reason that Hayes’ lawsuit is so stupid: if this was a bias against white males in favor of women, then why was Marcy Forman sacked and replaced with a white male, Jim Dinkins? Why was Hayes replaced with a white male, Gary Mead? Why was a Latino male, John Torres, replaced with another Latino male, Al Pena? Where are all the women who came in and took over?

This administration came in and cleaned house with the existing career staff. I didn’t see Torres or Foreman filing suits. Why wouldn’t someone want their own team? Finally, as an SES, you don’t have the same type of job security in your position that lower graded employees do. Instead of dealing with the fact that the new administration didn’t want some meathead with an online degree running a 2.5 billion dollar organization, he cries foul and discrimination. What a joke!

I did understand the why of the earlier shooting at the Long Beach ICE office in February. Now it makes sense. See
