DHS employee wore offensive costume in office all day.

DHS immigration chief Julie Myers yesterday met with senators about an employee’s racially offensive Halloween costume that she lauded. She claimed ignorance about the fact that the man, dressed in a dreadlocks wig and prison outfit, had also been wearing make-up to darken his skin: “I was surprised and mortified to learn the day after the event that the employee’s true skin color was not as it had appeared.” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) also revealed that the employee had been wearing the costume all day:

“He was dressed in this costume during his entire shift at work all day, which means that in the workplace there wasn’t a manager that said, ‘You need to change, you need to leave,’” McCaskill said.
