Lawsuit: Janet Napolitano favored underqualified female cronies over men (Department of Homeland Security)
New York's top Department of Homeland Security cop [James T. Hayes] 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... 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...
As I noted, (Dora 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.)
From the lawsuit itself, here's more on Schriro:
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.

9/2/12 UPDATE: Suzanne Barr has resigned (link). From her resignation letter:
"In recent weeks, I have been the focus of unfounded allegations designed to destroy my reputation, but of greater concern however, is the threat these allegations represent to the reputation of this agency and the men and women who proudly serve their country by advancing ICE's mission... As such, I feel it is incumbent upon me to take every step necessary to prevent further harm to the agency and to prevent this from further distracting from our critical work. Therefore, it is with great regret that I submit my resignation as Chief of Staff for Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
