Remember that Obama political appointee who got into a fight with an autistic Native American for wearing a Redskins sweatshirt?
Well it turns out the same Obama official ended up resigning in November of 2016 and then pleading guilty to taking pictures underneath the skirts of women on the train in DC with his government issued iphone:
DAILY MAIL – A married senior official in President Obama’s Department of Education was convicted of sex crimes and resigned for following women on the DC Metro and taking pictures up their skirts, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
William Mendoza, 42, the former executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education, stepped down after he was arrested and charged with attempted voyeurism in November, 2016, for the vile acts.
Mendoza, who earned $140,000 a year as a policy advisor in Obama’s White House, tried to take photos and videos up women’s skirts at least four times on his government-issued iPhones in July 2016 without their consent.
He was also caught looking at footage, apparently filmed in secret, of a woman in her underwear getting changed in a dressing room. It is not known if he recorded the video himself.
When he took the indecent photos, he was supposed to be at work and was using a travel card funded by the taxpayer, according to documents obtained by DailyMail.com through a Freedom of Information Act request.
He was caught on surveillance camera trying to take the indecent picture during an investigation by the Metro Police Transit Department (WMATA), arrested and charged with one count of attempted voyeurism, a misdemeanor.
Mendoza resigned just before the Department of Education could launch their own investigation into his sexual misconduct.
He pleaded guilty to the charges in January 2017, was given suspended 90-day prison sentence, one year’s probation and was fined $100. He has not worked in public office since stepping down.
The reason this is just now coming to light apparently stems from the FOIA request the Daily Mail filed.
According to the lawyer for Mendoza, he received treatment for his issues. He hasn’t worked in DC since.
