Inspector General Scolds Obama DOJ:  The Department of Justice Inspector General found systemic flaws throughout the DOJ in handling complaints of sexual harassment over the last five years according to a story by Washington Post reporter Sari Horwitz.  The cases examined by the IGs Office were obtained by WaPo through a Freedom of Information Act request.  Some of the cases involved presidential appointees, FBI special agents in charge, U.S. Attorneys, federal prison wardens and senior level Justice Department employees.  In some cases perpetrators received little or no discipline and later received bonuses and performance awards.  The information indicates that sexual harassment incidents had increased significantly in recent years and that some incidents presented potential criminal activity, but were never referred to the IG for investigation.
