    The de Blasio administration, an administration plagued with corruption and poor policy, can now add one more item to their laundry list: child porn. Jacob Schwartz, 29, was a de Blasio administration staffer and a rising young Democratic figure before revelations came out about his obsession with child porn. Schwartz was popped for having over 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop. Some of the material discovered involved baby girls aging as young as 6 months old, court documents revealed Friday. NYPD computer-crimes investigators accepted Schwartz’s surrender Thursday morning. Schwartz has been under investigation since March 29, 2017, when...

    Candace Marie Claiborne has become the first Clinton-era State Department employee indicted on treason charges, after a federal grand jury indicted her for conspiring to defraud the U.S. government, concealing contact with foreign spies, obstructing an official proceeding, and making false statements to the FBI. Claiborne, a veteran State Department employee who possessed a Top Secret security clearance, concealed her extensive contacts with Chinese intelligence agents, who for years lavished her with thousands of dollars in gifts as part of a pay-for-play scheme, according to a Department of Justice press release.

    House GOP would let employers demand workers' genetic test results https://www.statnews.com/2017/03/10/workplace-wellness-genetic-testing/ House Republicans would let employers demand workers’ genetic test results By Sharon Begley @sxbegle March 10, 2017 A little-noticed bill moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying a penalty of thousands of dollars, and would let employers see that genetic and other health information. Giving employers such power is now prohibited by legislation including the 2008 genetic privacy and nondiscrimination law known as GINA. The new bill gets around that landmark law by stating explicitly that GINA and other protections do...

    Report finds widespread misuse of state resources and other improprietiesA Fresno State University employee was paid an estimated $22,000 for time he was playing online games and watching YouTube videos at work, according to a state auditor's report released Thursday.

The state employees, who were investigated after whistleblower tips, cost the state nearly $40,000 through misuse of state resources, improper payments and other issues, according to the report. The report also identified instances where state...

    A self-identified IRS employee admitted he would go after, target and try to end conservative groups who wanted to abolish the IRS, to Cleta Mitchell, an attorney representing those groups, on a Washington Journal segment on C-SPAN. Mitchell, a political law attorney who has represented conservative groups during the IRS targeting scandal since 2010, was a guest on C-SPAN to discuss the possible impeachment of the IRS commissioner John Koskinen. The first caller was a self-identified IRS employee who said he would go after the groups Mitchell represents if their goal was to abolish the IRS. “I am a lowly...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/24/16 | Sarah Westwood
    Rep. Jeff Miller, chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, said Wednesday an Obama administration proposal to increase accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs by raising pay for senior executives does not address the agency's deepest problems. The proposal involves switching the classification of top VA officials from Title 5 to Title 38 of the Senior Executive Service, which would lift caps on how much the agency is allowed to pay certain employees. But the move would also prevent those employees from delaying disciplinary action by appealing their punishments to the Merit Systems Protection Board. Officials accused of wrongdoing...

    LEWISVILLE – The story of a now-former Whataburger employee denying service to two police officers went viral Wednesday, but that former employee told us there are two sides to every story and the incident was just a misunderstanding. Michael Magovern, who says he was refused service by the employee, is a city marshal in Strawn, Texas. He was back at the Lewisville Whataburger for lunch Wednesday at the request of Whataburger corporate staff, who asked him to come so they could apologize. "No person should make that comment to anybody," Marshal Magovern said. News 8 spoke to the former employee...

    Hotair ^ | 03/02/2015 | Ed Morrissey
    Thanks to the litigious nature of American culture, employers in the private sector have a tough time firing people for poor performance. Misconduct, especially that caught in the act, generally is an exception to that trend. CBS News discovers that’s not the case in the federal civil-service system, where chronic bad behavior and even spending half the day watching Internet porn doesn’t qualify for immediate termination. Instead, it starts a process that can last as long as two years, and often just means that managers shrug off bad behavior and bad performance … even when the employee presents a...

    Recently, a small firestorm was ignited by Valerie Lucus-McEwen, a government Emergency Management employee, who had the temerity to accuse preparedness types of “selfishness.” While your immediate reaction may be – as mine certainly was – “Are people really and truly this thoughtless?” – this question does deserve a proper answer, particularly as those who are easily influenced by the leftist media, or who believe the state really and actually is the omniscient, omnipotent savior of our personal and corporate lives, are actually asking this question. So, let’s examine the issue: First, many preparedness types have, as part of their...
  • Government Agency Scraps Employee Ratings To Avoid ‘Discrimination’

    One government agency has decided that the results of employee ratings are too discriminatory, and eliminated the process entirely. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced on Monday that it will now award all employees the highest rating regardless of performance reviews. The CFPB, which oversees transactions in the financial sector for the federal government, decided to no longer conduct employee reviews because there were just too many apparent “significant disparities” between the races, ages, and locations of its employees. According to American Banker, this new policy is set to cost over $5 million dollars, as it will now pay employees...

    Nathaniel Wentz is a 17-year-old kid who plays quarterback for his high school football team. He also works — well, he used to work — during his free time. Why did we say he used to work? Because he was fired from his gig at Odyssey 1 family entertainment center in Tacoma, Washington after he wore a Broncos jersey to work last Sunday. Why was he wearing a Broncos jersey? Because his boss told employees that they could wear jerseys of their favorite teams to work since it was the day of the AFC and NFC Championship Games. Wentz's manager...

    A California county has banned a veteran employee from criticizing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because a coworker who overheard the criticism was offended. The employee is Norina Mooney, who has logged some 20 years of work experience with Santa Clara County, the epicenter of Silicon Valley. According to Mooney’s attorneys with the Pacific Justice Institute, she made some water-cooler talk with a fellow employee about the high number people who have had their insurance policies canceled under Obamacare.

    There Is No Shutdown … For Non-essential Federal Employees, Only Citizens Oct 6 Posted by tonysanders What is this horrid government shutdown I keep reading about? It isn’t for Federal employees, since the House passed legislation paying all non-essential Federal employees that were furloughed for their missed time. (I President Obama signs it, that is). Stated differently. Non-essential Federal employees received a taxpayer-funded vacation. The government shutdown is a way for the Administration and Senate to punish Americans for Republicans not rubber-stamping the funding of Obamacare.

    A Department of Homeland Security manager in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government is, on the side, running an inflammatory website that throws around gay slurs and advocates the mass murder of "whites" and the "ethnic cleansing" of "Uncle Tom race traitors," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Ayo Kimathi, who calls himself the “Irritated Genie,” told his supervisors that the website was set up to sell concert and lecture videos. But the report showed the site's content strayed far beyond concert promotion, warning about a coming race war. His website, “War on the Horizon,” declares,...

    Dear Dave, Is it okay to pay two employees who do the same jobs different salaries? Eric Dear Eric, Sure, it’s okay. Fair isn’t always equal, and equal isn’t always fair. There are no two people on earth who do the same, exact jobs with the same, exact levels of competency and precision. Here’s a more detailed example. Let’s say I had two personal assistants within my organization. Both of them worked as assistants to vice presidents, but one has been on my team for 10 years and is the assistant to someone whose department is very large and profitable....
