Forget going after terrorists and illegal aliens. It appears the top job of Janet Napolitano and her goons is silencing anyone who dares to complain about horrible working conditions and sexual harassment.
Can’t wait to get her out on the stump with the failed president as a shining example of his leadership.
The number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement workers who claimed they faced retaliation from superiors has more than doubled since Janet Napolitano took over, according to data obtained by The Post.
The stats — which also show an increase in sexual-harassment claims — come as James Hayes, a senior law-enforcement official, moves ahead with a lawsuit charging he faced a “hostile work environment” in which male employees face discrimination under Napolitano, who oversees ICE as head of Homeland Security.
Hayes, who also said higher-ups created a “frat-house” atmosphere, claims agency bosses tried to intimidate him by opening several investigations of his own conduct after he filed a complaint.
Agency-wide, the number of “reprisal” claims jumped from 43 in 2009 to 63 in 2010 and then hit 103 in 2011, as reported under the “No Fear Act,” which offers anti-discrimination and whistle-blower protections to federal workers.
The number of sexual-harassment claims jumped from two in 2009 to 10 in 2011, and the number of “nonsexual”-harassment claims rose from 37 in 2009 to 81 in 2011.
“Instead of investigating terrorists, look at the time and resources they spent to quell some discrimination complaint. Why in the world would they do that?” Hayes’ attorney, Morris Fischer, asked during a Post interview yesterday.
Why would they do that? Because when Democrats are in charge you either get in line and shut up or face the consequences. It’s all about diversity and fairness, baby.
