It looks like we have an end to the ICE “female Frat House” scandal. That’s the scandal which cost one of DHS Secretary Janet Reno’s protégées, Suzanne Barr, her high-level political-appointee job in ICE.
DHS has filed notice of an out-of-court settlement with the whistleblower in the case, James Hayes. Hayes will remain employed by ICE – and will also receive a payment of $175k as damages.
So much for those initial claims that Hayes’ allegations were unfounded. I guess DHS decided they really didn’t want folks who witnessed Barr’s antics to testify in open court regarding what they saw.
I say this is “sorta” justice because it is. Real justice would require DHS to go after Barr to recover the $175,000 she cost US taxpayers by being an idiot and sexually harassing male subordinates.
I ain’t holding my breath, though.
