A digital “Forum of Hate” (FoH), has been running at the Department of Veterans Affairs that is led by Federal Attorneys and VA officials to complain about, spread rumours and moan about work. Emails among the group included complaints about upper management’s obsession with getting bonuses, behaviour and their excessive Affirmative Action hiring which they felt degraded the workforce.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Posters on the FOH compared Board of Veterans Affairs (BVA) compared “leadership sexual organs to a food product,” and said “ni–ers just gotta nig,” according to the same report. They called an obese black female VA supervisor “G-POT”— G is a prefix used by status-obsessed rappers, and POT because they said she looked like a hippopotamus.
Some of their complaints were not entirely unfounded. In 2014, for example, BVA Senior Counsel Kelli Kordich told Congress she was “appalled and saddened by the unchecked mismanagement [and] corruption” and listed managers who she said took part in misconduct or had poor performance but “were not disciplined, but rather were rewarded by bonuses.”
BVA Vice Chairman Laura Eskenazi was transferred to a different job after she tried to steer a major contract to her husband’s company and lied about it to investigators.
