Ford lied to Congress multiple times. Loos protected one of her staff attorneys after falsifying documents and facilitated him getting another government atty job and shes still on the job. Horace was forcibly removed from his previous ASAC job for HUGE ethical lapses and misuse of government property, he later reports his G ride stolen when it was actually towed from a strip club. Internal affairs has whitewashed and covered ALL of these actions.
Richardson "lacked candor", which is a nice way to say lied and he sits in judgement of Agents conduct and is in fact allowing one of our best 20 yr agents to be fired for having a slow yr. That slow yr still produced more cases than the ENTIRE Oakland field office during the same time period. A 20 yr Agent in Chicago is being terminated over a tit for tat issue with the U.S. Attys Office merely because TRAVER, YES TRAVER doesnt feel its a good time to stand up to the U S Attys office. Go Figure.
Martin leaks info to the media re: fast and furious so he can grandstand when everybody else burns down behind the oversight. Problem with that is, they are suing Jay Dobyns for glorifying the agency but violating the media policy. You think they are going to sue Martin? WHEN AND WHERE DOES IT STOP? None of this is/was necessary. This is what happens when you get consummed by power and it goes unchecked.
Wasn't Thomasson found guilty in a discrimination case that involved the American's With Disabilites Act? It was when he was the ASAC in Seattle I believe. Aren't you suppose to be fired after that happens?
Wasn't McLemore supposed to be fired after she was found to have lied to investigators not once but twice? Didn't John Torres catch a disability judgement against him in San Francisco? How is he still around? Pretty sure Crenshaw was involved in all kinds of inappropriate stuff with his secretary. Nothing comes of it. Pretty sure Ronnie Carter got run out of town for the same thing. Billy Hoover is hooked up with the chick from Chief Counsels office. No action taken. Matt Horace has pretty much done it all walks away from everything. Marvin Richardson answered questions with less than candor from investigators and through his agents under the bus to protect himself. Joe Gordon lied about everything and had over 20 EEOC complaints and they allowed him to just retire.
ATF is trying to fire and discipline multiple agents right now over stuff insignificant compared to the crimes and indiscretions committed by the executives.
THere is a reason why the vote of no confidence is coming from the field. We don't trust HQ to be fair or honest.
Wait and see what happens to Newell and Gillett. If they both become Special Assistants to the Director then you know they got taken care of and their crimes were covered up.
