Forestry Service Misconduct and Retaliation information

Leave a comment

Submitted by Lawrence Lucas

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There will be an oversight hearing Thur. Nov. 15th 10:00 am Eastern regarding misconduct in the Forestry Service. I would encourage you to share this and watch the hearing either live or archived via this link.

https://oversight.house.gov/hearing/examining-misconduct-and-retaliation-at-the-u-s-forest-service/

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy has asked the Department of Agriculture for extensive documents related to sexual harassment and misconduct at the Forest Service, citing persistent reports of such conduct and retaliation against employees who report it.

In an Oct. 22 letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen, Gowdy (R-S.C.) requested all communications regarding anti-harassment policies sent or received by top officials overseeing the Forest Service and all regional foresters since Dec. 2, 2016.

He also asked for information including the number of employees disciplined or terminated in relation to anti-harassment policies since that date, as well as an accounting of penalties imposed. And he asked for all personnel actions associated with employees who filed complaints or reported sexual misconduct or harassment since Jan. 1, 2016.

Gowdy asked the department to comply by Nov. 5. As of this morning, the committee hadn’t received a response, a spokeswoman said.

His letter comes on the heels of several Forest Service initiatives to combat a history of sexual misconduct and harassment in the agency, particularly in firefighting crews. Christiansen took over earlier this year after Tony Tooke resigned as Forest Service chief, following backlash over his own past conduct — a relationship he had a decade earlier with a lower-ranking Forest Service employee when he was a regional forester.

Addressing sexual misconduct is a top priority, USDA Undersecretary for Natural Resources and Environment James Hubbard has said. He oversees the Forest Service (E&E Daily, July 25). More

Black Farmers bring suit against the State of Georgia for Voting Rights violations

THE BATTLE LINES HAVE BEEN DRAWN AS BLACK FARMERS CHALLENGE THE STATE OF GEORGIA AND SECRETARY OF STATE BRIAN KEMP OVER VOTING RIGHTS FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN PREDOMINANTLY BLACK COUNTIES AND PRECINCTS IN GEORGIA.


August 21, 2018


 Black Farmers from south Georgia filed suit against the State of Georgia and Secretary of State Brian Kemp alleging violations of section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, among several claims. The Black Farmers assert that the State of Georgia and The Secretary of State have failed to enforce federal laws and maintain uniformity of legal issues among all the counties that make up the state. In particular, the state and secretary have been alleged, to what amounts to putting on a charade, political gerrymandering. It is without question that the state and secretary knows counties must have preclearance from the Department of Justice or the United States District Court in Washington, D.C. before the counties can shut down polling locations or precincts in predominantly African American counties or precincts.

 However, this will be a showdown of epic proportions. Also named in the petition are The National Republican Committee, The National Democratic Committee, The NAACP, The ACLU, The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, The State Republican Committee and The State Democratic Committee. The Black Farmers are united and have been fighting the USDA for years on similar civil rights issues. An interesting correlation has been drawn by the farmers and the history of questionable stances on civil rights issues by now Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue as former governor of the State of Georgia and his continued stance of denying Black Farmers the right to be heard at the administrative level.

DEADLINE GEORGIA- DEMOCRATIC GUBERNATORIAL NOMINEE STACEY ABRAMS V. THE GOP-

IN RE: DEADLINE GEORGIA- DEMOCRATIC GUBERNATORIAL NOMINEE STACEY ABRAMS V. THE GOP- HOW THE USDA’S STORIED HISTORY OF DISCRIMINATION COULD BE THE DECIDING FACTOR ON WHO BECOMES THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA.

JUNE 25, 2018

 There is no doubt that the Republican Party is aware of the historical significance of the nomination of Stacey Abrams and her bid to become the first Black Female Governor in the United States. With this nomination, the eyes of the country will be hanging on her every word in regards to policy and civil rights. The Democrats are amassing a war chest for her bid to become the next governor of Georgia, but the Republicans will not be outdone. However, the one factor, that could be the deciding factor, is how Stacey Abrams tackles the issues of Socially Disadvantaged Farmers.

  Socially Disadvantaged Farmers are legally defined as a protected class, to include Black Farmers, Hispanic Farmers, Indian Farmers and White Women. This protected class will be the deciding factor on if Georgia remains a red state or will it be the keystone of the crown jewel that the Dems. are hoping for in November. It is without controversy that former Georgia Governor and current Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, inherited an absolute mess at the USDA, an agency that is truly out of control and in desperate need of reform.

Whistleblowers! is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower’s Summit July 27-29 in Washington D.C.

Join Marti Oakley, Lawrence Lucas and Lesa Donnelly in a discussion regarding the ongoing sexual harassment and abuses occuring in the USDA agencies.  Retaliation is the name of the game and intimidation and harassment are still common practice for speaking out.

Mr. Lucas was the former President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees, beginning in 1994.  His career as a government employee began as a political appointee during the Carter Administration. He retired after 32 years of service.

Quote from Lesa Donnelly’s letter to Secretary Sonny Perdue,USDA:

“It is no secret that the USDA is currently focused on the issues of sexual misconduct in the
Forest Service. This is due to media exposure and the Committee on Oversight and Government
Reform’s intercession. And while clearly there is a culture of misogyny in the Forest Service,
particularly in areas of what are still called (unfortunately) non-traditional jobs such as the fire, law
enforcement, and engineering organizations, there is a deeper cause that is never addressed. It is
important to note that my emphasis on issues and incidents in the Forest Service does not belie the
corresponding issues in other USDA agencies and mission areas. Forest Service civil rights matters are
a microcosm of the issues occurring throughout USDA. Additionally, addressing sexual harassment and
reprisal issues can be expanded to similar discrimination areas such as race, disability, and even work
place bullying.”

We have a lot to talk about regarding this rogue agency that is a shameful example of an unaccountable government bureaucracy.
