The US Secretary of Homeland Security ran her department like a female "frat house" where men were routinely bullied and sexually humiliated, according to a lawsuit filed by a former official.
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 mens 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."
The allegations emerged in a discrimination suit filed by James Hayes, a senior official at ICE, who accused Miss Napolitano of pushing him aside in favour of Dora Schirro, a long-time aide

Why am I not surprised?
Barack sure looks engrossed with a page that has like 6 words on it.
Most likely six word phrase: Don’t look around. Fairies behind you.
What dya expect? It's not written in his native tongue.
This article is homophobic.
LOL - Sound it out Barry...
I’m just a tad curious. How much does that department spend on batteries?
Probably about the same as they do cleaning their carpets.
Given the amateurish and offensive nature of Napolitano’s agents at the airport, this sort of management style isn’t at all surprising.
Indeed, it’s likely more widespread than this article alleges.
Jocularities aside, admittedly that’s going to be hard to do, this is The Telegraph, not some shifty blog. That’s a reputation and a presence worldwide that is hard to ignore. This is not going to look good for Barry.
Big Sis is probably the most universally loathed figure in the entire Obama apparat. Not even Democrats like her very much. I doubt if many high profile dems will be rushing to the microphone to defend her.
I wonder how long it will take Obama to chuck her under the bus.
If ever there was a thread that was useless without pics. I bet she's a hippo.
Barr (but this is a good pic of her, she looks older and chubbier now)
I dont know but after about 14 PBRs I would let her be my Monica.
I would spend a lot of time looking at the ceiling however.
She was Napolitano's squeeze back in Arizona.
She doesn’t look like a psycho *itch in that pic. Must be mugging for the camera.
And you ain’t kidding that that’s a good picture, I found another one. I vote to CONVICT.

Big Sis Janet Napolitano ‘promoted woman with whom she had a ‘long relationship’ while her female staff tormented male colleagues with ‘sexually charged games’
And here I thought they were using windmills...
Bull dykes rampaging through the agency for “homeland security.” Just another example of Obama’s “social justice.” We have to get that entire lot of ungodly despots out of our capital.
“...her female staff tormented male colleagues with sexually charged games”
OMG....and the media had a hissy fit over water boarding. These poor men were tortured far worse than that.
This will be big news. I’m sure CNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC will be all over it.
Is she Rose Anne Barr’s sister?
Janet Napolitano is a disgrace as a public official. To promote her gal pals is bad enough, but to name veterans and returning active duty personnel as threats to this country is the height of stupidity and character defamation. She should be fired immediately and her entire unconstitutional department should be dissolved with its few legitimate functions given to the FBI and the DOD.
The other guy is looking at the Dyke and wondering how she got in Here
They’re looking at redacted Fast and Furious documents.
The two females on the right are harassing the male on the left.
The question is will Romney put a stop to this?
It's blue and kind of shiny. Maybe BO is..
He colored the entire page blue and stayed within the lines.
Law school is what changed my life, definitely, said Barr, who earned her J.D. in 2003. It wasnt only the criminal law, but it was the relationships that I made in law school and the people.
A Phoenix native, Barr went to Central High School and the University of Arizona before working in Washington D.C. for four years, first as a staff assistant for Sen. John McCain and then as a legislative correspondent for Sen. Jon Kyl.
Her next step was the Sandra Day OConnor College of Law at ASU, where she delved into criminal law. Barr secured a job as a prosecutor at the Maricopa County Attorneys Office after graduating. In law school, she reconnected with a grade school friend, who urged her become more involved in policy. A Republican, Barr nonetheless joined the staff of Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano, first as policy advisor on law enforcement issues, then as deputy director and later director of legislative affairs.
Law enforcement is one of those areas where everybody has a common goal. When youre talking about criminals, everybody wants the bad guys arrested and off the streets, Barr said. We all have a common ground, which allows us to work without the political battles getting in the way.
When Napolitano became Secretary of Homeland Security, Barr took a job as chief of staff for John T. Morton, Director of ICE. When I was with the state, we always wanted the federal government to partner with us and now we go around the country meeting with police chiefs and sheriffs. All these partnerships are key and I understand that from both ends, Barr said. It was the border expertise, being raised in Arizona and doing law enforcement in Arizona, that I was able to transfer to this position. Its been extremely helpful.

Why do feminists think sexual eqality is about mimicking men at their worst? What they really want is to replace abusive male dominance with abusive female dominance. It’s part of the left’s whole twisted concept of what constitutes ‘social justice’, like replacing white-based racism with black-based racism.
To all in the nearly completely government-funded upper reaches of the middle class: surprise, and welcome to what men in the private sector lower echelons have seen for decades. Our West (as in western culture) is saturated with it (immoral, pagan romanticism/feminism and other social diseases). Have fun. Enjoy the slide.
