Boy, the gang at Homeland Security can't seem to catch a break.
You know, covering-up a scandal where a white employee dressed in black-face:
Ms. [Julie L.] Myers [assistant secretary of homeland security for immigration and customs enforcement] had been a judge at the Halloween contest. The staff member who won the “most original costume” prize wore a dreadlock wig, what looked like a prison jumpsuit and black face paint.
“I’m a Jamaican detainee from Krome — obviously, I’ve escaped,” the employee, referring to a detention center in Miami, announced to the judges, provoking laughter, according to the Congressional report.
Ms. Myers then posed for photographs with the employee — whose name was not released — smiling for the camera.
Ugh. This is what our taxes pay for folks. This - and a seemingly endless, unjustified war.
