Who knew? Janet likes the ladies…

Second ICE staffer claims anti-guy bias by Homeland Security Secretary  Napolitano

NY Post: A second employee at US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is suing Homeland  Security Secretary Janet Napolitano over claims his career was curtailed due to  anti-male bias at the agency, The Post has learned.
Jason Mount alleges in court papers that he was denied 43 promotions because  he’s a white male and that he took a lower-grade job because of “how serious the  discrimination and retaliation had become.”
Mount, 37, filed suit on July 31, about two months after ICE official James  Hayes Jr. sued Napolitano for $3 million for allegedly pushing him out of a top  job in Washington, DC, to make way for Dora Schriro, later named New York City’s  jails commissioner.
Hayes, now in charge of ICE investigations in New York City, says Schriro was  less qualified than him but was allowed to usurp his role because she “enjoyed a  longstanding relationship” with Napolitano. Schriro served as director of the Arizona Department of Corrections under  then-Gov. Napolitano.
According to Mount’s suit, he began working for the US Customs Service in  September 2001 and was promoted to branch chief/supervisory special agent at ICE  headquarters in DC in October 2009. But after leveling a November 2010 complaint of gender discrimination in  relation to “not being provided an office,” court papers say he was repeatedly  subjected to illegal retaliation that kept him from rising in the ranks.
His DC federal court filing details dozens of incidents in which he was  allegedly passed over for promotions despite being fully qualified. The litany of allegations include Mount’s September 2010 application to fill  an assistant-special-agent-in-charge, or ASAC, post with Homeland Security  Investigations in Boston.
Despite receiving “a rating of 100 percent on the knowledge, skills and  abilities rating factors for the position,” Mount says, he was never contacted “to take part in an interview or further selection activities.” Instead, court papers say the job went to a woman who was one step lower than  Mount on the federal civil-service pay scale.
In addition, the woman, Linda Hunt, hadn’t completed an 18-month tour of duty  at HSI headquarters in Washington, which “is required to be considered for an  ASAC position,” the suit says.
Because of “the severe and pervasive retaliation and discrimination,” Mount  says, he “essentially committed career suicide” in December 2011 and asked for a  reassignment, “stating that he would be willing to accept a downgrade” in rank  and pay.
After sending the memo, he was notified in March that he was selected for a  spot in Boston and “begrudgingly accepted” the offer, the suit states.
An ICE spokesperson said, “US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)  recently received a copy of Mr. Mount’s complaint. The agency doesn’t comment on  unfounded claims and will respond to Mr. Mount’s allegations as appropriate  through the judicial system.”
Meanwhile, a federal official said the allegations in Hayes’ suit “do not  align with the fact that Mr. Hayes has routinely held high-ranking assignments,  including his current position as special agent in charge of ICE’s  second-largest field office.”
The official also said the Department of Homeland Security “intends to timely  file a motion to dismiss this unmeritorious lawsuit” to meet an Aug. 24  deadline.
Nothing shocking about this…liberals love to help out their buddies and use affirmative action.  It will be shocking if either if these men prevail in a court.

Surprise! Not.
Next we’ll hear how Elena Kagan also “likes” the ladies…. 😉


Par for the left/liberal course… race/class/gender rules, integrity and ability are for suckers who need them to get ahead.


We in Arizona have always known. Janet was a disaster for Arizona. Took us 3 years post-Napolitano to clean up the mess. Thanks to a wonderful Legislator and Governor Jan Brewer, we finally have a budget surplus. Now, for the illegal immigration problem…Enter SHERIFF JOE!


There’s a lot of buddy buddy appointments going around in Washington. Not that republicans don’t do it too, but democrats take it to a totall low level.
They don’t care if these people are qualified or not.
I ICE and HS were taken over by rank feminazis. AndI hope these beotches get theirs real soon.

GLBT(?), in the WH, S.Courts, Armed Forces, DHS, DOD, Senate and Congress! Hell! No wonder the POS says Americans are getting soft. He like all the rest are setting the stage for a Big-Government-F**k-Feast. Welcome to “Fundamental Change”.


That’s a shocker. Yeah right!, and no way does it affect her job..

I’ve seen this happen in my career field (social services) within the last two years, being discharged from one of two jobs. I had to take a stand against exceeding my physical limitations, and being volunteered into that position was just a step toward my dismissal. It was clear from the beginning that the new Program Director (a female) did not like me. My 2nd job was uncompensated (volunteer), but I was a live-in employee. The job I lost was working w/ men in drug/alcohol recovery. The live-in job was working w/ a co-ed clientele in a homeless shelter. My… Read more »
