ICE Sex Scandal
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Chief of Staff Suzanne Barr resigned Saturday amid charges that she created a “frat house” atmosphere of boozing and sexual harassment at the agency.Given the quick resignation and that no voices in the administration have spoken in Suzanne Barr's defense, I believe a credible level of truth can be attributed to the allegations.

Barr’s decision to quit came two weeks after she took a leave of absence after new raunchy charges from a pair of ICE employees.
One claimed that a hard-drinking Barr, longtime aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, approached him at a U.S. diplomat’s home with an offer of oral sex.
A second worker detailed a 2009 meeting in the office of ICE Director John Morton where a leering Barr made inappropriate comments to a senior employee.
“You a sexy mothaf----,” she purportedly purred before looking at his crotch and asking, “How long is it anyway?”
Homeland Security Agent James Hayes filed a May lawsuit accusing Napolitano of hiring female friends who created a work environment that was hostile to men.
Hayes claimed Barr cleared out the offices of three male employees and moved the nameplates, computers, telephones and other items into a men's bathroom at ICE headquarters.
