Reporter-blogger Eric Black dug up some more news
on the Office of Special Counsel investigation
into US attorney for Minnesota Rachel Paulose, whose management style triggered four of her office's top attorneys to resign
their top spots and take rank-and-file positions.
One accusation investigators are looking into is whether Paulose used racial slurs in describing one of her employees. Black reports that two witnesses have given statements to investigators about Paulose's possible racist talk:
The first told the investigators that she heard the remark. The second â Pauloseâs personal secretary â either corroborated the remark itself or told the investigators that she has heard Paulose make similar remarks. Paulose has not publicly confirmed or denied that she made the comment.
The alleged slur or slurs involve the words âfat,â âblack,â âlazyâ and âass.â The staff member involved told Black she has filed an official complaint.
