Top Bush lawyer tried to ‘ship out’ gay employees to Detroit: (See photo)

Via: Raw Story


The former head of the Office of Special Counsel “wanted to ‘ship out’” ALL the agency’s gay employees to Detroit, according to a government report released Wednesday.

Special Counsel Scott Bloch, who served under the Bush administration from 2003 to 2007, established a field office in Detroit and reassigned several gay employees to the new location. But there is no evidence that those reassignments “were taken for a legitimate business purpose of the agency,” according to the report released by Inspector General Patrick McFarland.

“Mr. Bloch and his immediate staff offered an array of ostensible explanations [for the reassignments] in press releases, Congressional testimony, and interviews with the investigative team, seeking to link the reassignments to the bona fide operational needs of the agency,” the report stated. “However, our investigation developed evidence which tended to undermine the proffered explanations.”

The report suggests the reassignments were instead based on anti-gay sentiments.

Richard Trefry, a government contractor, told investigators that Bloch “spontaneously explained” his desire to “ship out” a number of gay employees. Bloch allegedly told him he “HAD A LICENSE TO DO THIS.”
