Suzanne Barr ICE Accused of Lewd Conduct: Janet Napolitano Accused of Running Female Frat House

What will it take for agents protecting our borders to be taken seriously? Answer: the Obama administration's rear ends ripped of all authority. In August 2010, SEVEN THOUSAND ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement) agents voted "No Confidence" in their leadership and specifically "Acting" Director John Morton and Phyllis Coven. Morton is still the "acting" Director. Suzanne Barr, a Chief of Staff at the agency is now accused of "lewd" conduct in the working environment.

Two more ICE employees came forward this week to complain about "lewd" conduct inside the agency, submitting sworn affidavits that depict graphic comments made by two top officials working under DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

The affidavits were given as part of a discrimination and retaliation suit filed earlier this year by James T. Hayes Jr., the head of the New York office for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The two new affidavits described separate incidents in 2009. Both accounts described the actions of Barr, who was also mentioned in Hayes' lawsuit.

ICE Public Affairs Director Brian Hale said in a written statement that the department would respond "directly and strongly" to the lawsuit in court, but noted internal measures were being taken over the claims against Barr.

In the newly emerging affidavits, one of the employees claimed that in October 2009, while in a discussion about Halloween plans, the individual witnessed Barr turn to a senior ICE employee and say: "You a sexy" (expletive deleted)...

"She then looked at his crotch and asked, 'How long is it anyway?'" according to the affidavit...

She has been accused of drinking heavily at agency conferences, and one affidavit says she offered "oral sex." Here's the "frat house" claim:
Barr is also mentioned in that lawsuit, which alleges Napolitano turned the Department of Homeland Security into a female-run 'frat house' where male staffers were routinely humiliated and on the receiving end of 'sexually charged games'.
Apparently the agency is being forced to take the matter seriously. Too bad 7,000 agents voting no confidence in their "acting" Director did not get the same serious consideration:
While Napolitano is named as the sole defendant, Hayes' suit focuses on Barr and Dora Schriro, who joined DHS in February 2009, five months after Hayes was promoted to director of ICE Detention and Removal Operations.

Hayes claims Schriro, who was brought on as a special adviser to Napolitano, was not qualified for the job because she lacked law enforcement experience. Hayes maintained Schriro enjoyed a "long-standing relationship" with Napolitano, and soon pushed him aside "because of this relationship (with Napolitano) and because he was not female," the suit says. Read it all at Fox News. There is a lot of detail.

Barr is on "leave" while the matter is being sorted out. Unfortunately, Janet Napolitano, who has never married and has no children, continues to undermine US security at the highest levels of our Government.

If voting rights do not apply for whites, what makes them think harassment laws apply to men?

Jeez. I knew this woman when she was a kid. She was a nice, well-behaved, and very pretty young lady.

Her old man was Burton Barr, the speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives for many years.

I’m guessing she has developed some kind of problem with booze.

Given the new presidential directives it seems that ICE doesn’t really have anything to do.

The first time I saw that headline today I had to read it 3 times before it stopped saying Rosanne.

The picture makes her guilty, and of what I don’t much care.

Your Frat House hotlink has this quote: “ - - - The other witness statement details a trip to Colombia in late 2009 made by Barr, ICE director John Morton and Ray Parmer, ICE special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in New Orleans.”

Why is there a connection with Columbia? Maybe Obama’s Secret Service Sex Gang brought in Barr’s ICE ?

Are ICE employees allowed to vote out their agency head?
If so others are in trouble too...

Graewoulf, maybe John Morton had to set up the connections he routinely lets brings drugs into the country. However, your scenario works too:-)

This brings up one of the most important political questions of the Obama Years: “Just what IS the transparency of ICE?”

"John Morton had to set up the connections he routinely lets brings drugs into the country."

Back to Fast & Furious....Eric Holder thinks the Obama EO protects him, Obama and Janet.....connecting the dots, Issa and Grassley may have set a trap for these sorry people.

Just ping the admin moderator to get the photo removed. Is someone giving you a hard time about it, maybe even the ever so classy Miz Barr herself?

I hate to admit this, but I don’t know how to ping on FR. I did send an email to the FR webmaster but that was several hours ago.

Yes, I heard from the person who took the photo. He was very nice about it, and had a very good reason for wanting it taken down. I try to be careful about photos but...

If you receive this message, please remove the photo of Suzanne Barr from this post. There is a copyright issue. It was only an issue at my blog, and that has been taken care of but it should be removed here also.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Good evening.

The photo comes from the Washington Post? If so, why would the photographer contact you (as opposed to their attorney). The subject of the post is a government official, and it looks like the standard picture all government officials have taken for their position.

Seems this would fall under fair use. Maybe I'm missing something.

M Kehoe, I was told he took the photo for an Alumni magazine photo with the agreement that it would not be released. In this case it is a negative article and he wanted it down. He did say there was a cost involved, but he wasn’t interested in the money - just getting it down so it did not damage him with his client.

Was the WaPo article negative?

I removed it from my blog and replaced it with her ICE photo.

Good morning.

Understood. You did the right thing.

I don't recall the gist of the Compost article, although a good bet would be that it was positive.
