A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about apparent issues with senior leadership at DHS. Well, it looks like one of the individuals at DHS accused of seriously lewd and inappropriate behavior around subordinates – ICE Chief of Staff Suzanne Barr – has resigned.
In resigning Barr denied any wrongdoing. Rather, Barr indicated she was resigning in order to “prevent further harm to the agency and to prevent this from further distracting from our critical work.”
Yeah, right. Given what’s recently been made public concerning her, um, . . . , “uninhibited” conduct around subordinates in redacted copies of affidavits, I just don’t think I’m ready to buy that.
Looks to me more likely that Ms. Barr was acting like the Chapter President of the equivalent of a female “Animal House” rather than a senior government official, got caught red-handed, and was “asked” to resign to limit the damage. But I guess I could be wrong.
Best of luck in your future private-sector employment search, Ms. Barr.
