A bitch is feeling a bit under the weather and I blame that on…well, the weather.
Thank Gawd for lozenges!
This morning I caught the morning news. There was a follow-up story on CNN about a certain Julie Myers of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and her infamous office Halloween costume party from a few years ago where the Most Original Costume award went to some asshole in blackface wearing prison garb and a dreadlock wig.
Anyhoo, at the time of the incident Jules said she didn’t know her employee was wearing make-up. However, she obviously did know that the photos of the asshole wearing prison garb and blackface could cause a shit storm…because she ordered them destroyed, saying that she didn’t think "recognizing an escaped prisoner in any way was beneficial to the agency's goal of treating everyone in our custody with dignity and respect."
Well shit, that kind of uptight and political bullshit laced comment requires a sniff and the folding of hands or at least the clutching of one’s pearl necklace.
I’m just saying.
Where was I? Oh yes…the pictures were believed to have been destroyed and Jules spun the hell out of that shit and got her confirmation.
But, but, but wait!
Of course there’s more.
CNN filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act on November 6, requesting access to all related photos…Jules was confirmed December 20…and this week ICE released 113 official photographs of the party.
And damn it to hell and back again if those thought deleted black faced prison garb photos weren’t included in the mix.
Apparently, technicians were able to electronically restore the photos.
Mayhap they could do the same for the integrity of our federal government?
