Bradley Schlozman, who ironically headed the civil rights division of the Department of Justice on an interim basis under Bush, discriminated against liberal applicants and made false statements to Congress about it, according to a DOJ investigation.

The report says Schlozman politicized and mistreated his staff and tried to punish agency employees he believed were too liberal. The report cited an e-mail in which Schlozman noted it had been awhile since he’d had to “scream with a bloodcurdling cry at some commie.”


In the same 2003 missive, Schlozman used derogatory language to describe his pleasure in punishing career staffers, writing that “bitchslapping a bunch of (division) attorneys really did get the blood pumping and was even enjoyable once in a while.”


At other times, the report said, Schlozman urged the hiring of “real Americans,” apparently meaning conservatives, as opposed to liberals, whom he referred to as “libs” and “pinkos.”

Officers above Schlozman knew of his behavior but did nothing about it.   The investigation also discovered that he was not truthful when he told NY Senator Chuck Schumer in a June 2007 hearing that he didn’t consider political affiliations when hiring.
