ICE Official’s Suit Is Littered With Allegations of His Superior’s ‘Sexually Offensive Behavior’ and ‘Frat House-Type’ Antics

Above the Law has reported on a racy employment lawsuit involving high level officials in Immigration & Customs Enforcement.  Click here for the complaint in Hayes v. Napolitano. "James T. Hayes Jr., a top-level Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, is suing the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security because he claims that ICE’s chief of staff, Suzanne Barr, created a hostile working environment — specifically, `a frat house-type atmosphere that is targeted to humiliate and intimidate male employees.'”

Kirk Semple of the N.Y. Times has tied this lawsuit into a larger sense of "unrest" in the agency in part stemming from recent immigration policy changes adopted by the Obama administration.
