Suzanne Barr, the chief of staff to the director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, resigned from her post this week amid allegations of sexual harassment that state she, "frat house" atmosphere of boozing and sexual harassment at the agency."

2 separate male staffers have alleged inappropriate behavior by Barr. One claiming she propositioned him with oral sex, the other that she inquired as to the length of his genitals.

This case shows that no employer, man or woman, no matter how powerful, can get away with this kind of behavior.
