Senator Grassley has uncovered yet another egregious abuse of authority in the DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection, a deeply flawed and unethical organization at the top. Congress is already familiar with a very damning internal DHS report on CFATS that exposed rampant cronyism in OIP, coupled with illegal abuse of the Civil Service Merit System. That allowed a person who had been officially determined by an SES selection board as unqualified to head CFATS to be moved improperly into the Director position. The political assistant secretary illegally removed his career deputy from office just before the 2008 election, enabling him to move his unqualified crony into the CFATS Director position, where she proceeded to practice more of the cronyism that got her there and to waste hundreds of millions of dollars, all while falsely reporting compliance with the law. She was then promoted to deputy assistant secretary, in a "fox in the henhouse" oversight role for CFATS, and has never been held accountable for her widespread failures and illegal actions. A Congressional investigation should also be conducted into allegations that contract dollars were illegally steered to her former boss after he left office following the 2008 election.
