Tracie Dahl, a former employee at the Department of Homeland Security, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the agency. Dahl claims that Christopher Clark, the deputy chief of staff to the commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection division, forced her to have sex with him on multiple occassions.
According to the complaint:
- Clark “designed, created and maintained a sexually hostile and demeaning work environment for the plaintiff.”
- Clark “generally maintained the plaintiff as a sex slave with the expectation that the plaintiff would fill his sexual desires.”
- Clark “demanded and required the plaintiff to submit to his unwelcomed sexual advances in different motels.”
- After Dahl complained about the sexual harassment, “the agency further penalized and retaliated against the plaintiff by reducing her duties and work assignments, and it denied her transfer to another job assignment.”
