“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
The Democrats’ decision to play up sexual harassment just gave them a big black eye. Federal documents prove former President Barack Obama defended a pervert who secretly took “upskirt” pictures of women on the subway.
To make matters worse, the perpetrator used taxpayer-funded benefits and snapped the pics while was supposed to be at work!
Federal employment files obtained by Judicial Watch tell a sordid tale of perversion, porn, and public transportation.

William Mendoza, a member of the Lakota tribe, joined the Obama administration in January 2011. Obama appointed him as a “special assistant” in the Department of Education for American Indian tribes – and the promotions and pay raises came fast and furious.
Mendoza’s official title got longer and longer. Eventually he was “Executive Director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Native Alaskan Education” – and more importantly, Obama bumped up his salary at each step of the way.
When he started, he made $71,674 annually. By the time he left in August 2016, Mendoza pulled in a total salary of $168,872 per year – not to mention all the perks and benefits of federal office.
One of those perks is free transportation on the D.C. subway, known as the Metro. And that’s where Obama’s hand-picked political appointee was caught in his dirty games.

Mendoza took pictures of women wearing short skirts or loose shorts in the sweltering summer heat, without their consent.
Mendoza may have thought his government connections would protect him. If so, he was wrong. Police were able to piece together his crimes from eyewitnesses and security camera footage.
Mendoza staked out the historic Union Station and took pictures up the skirts of two different women on July 5, 2016 – within 20 minutes.
In both cases, police say, Mendoza aimed his camera “in the proximity of their bottom.”
Two days later, he was back at it, this time at another D.C. Metro stop. As a woman reached down to adjust her loose shorts, she saw the glow of somebody’s cell phone shining on her body. Mendoza got caught red-handed trying to take sneak-peek pictures.
As he ran out, a female witness told him to stop – then told police a man who looked just like Mendoza tried to take a picture of her a few days earlier!
You’d think that kind of a close call would convince Mendoza to quit… but the very next day, he moved on to yet another Metro stop.
This time, he followed two women wearing dresses up the escalators, aimed his cell phone “near the bottom of her dress,” and snapped a picture.
The Metro’s own police department decided to investigate Mendoza in August 2016. Mendoza decided to quit his job before the officials could close in on him.
But the Education Department’s internal investigation found that Mendoza used his government-issued free subway card, known as a SmarTrip card, to prowl the subway for fresh victims – and claimed it was official business.
Mendoza “engaged in criminal conduct while on government work time and/or while utilizing government transit benefits,” the department’s inspector general report found.
Even after officials had him on tape, Mendoza got away with a slap on the wrist. Last January, he plead guilty to attempted voyeurism and got 90 days in jail – suspended – as well as a year’s probation and a $100 fine.
His lawyer, Paul Y. Kiyonaga, tried to make Mendoza out to be the victim. “He’s received treatment for the underlying issues that gave rise to this incident, and, with the strong support of his family, is moving forward productively with his life,” the attorney told the media.
But what about the women who are afraid to go on the subway for fear that a rogue government employee will take perverted pictures or videos of them?
Still, Obama was cool with Mendoza, because Mendoza supported all the right PC causes.
Mendoza railed against sports teams using American Indians as mascots and protested the Dakota oil pipeline.

In fact, Mendoza had already gotten away with actions that would be unthinkable from a Republican official. He was accused of beating up a 28-year-old American Indian college student with Asperger’s Syndrome in October 2015 – because the man wore a shirt featuring the Washington Redskins.
Obama didn’t fire Mendoza after that altercation, and his behavior escalated to taxpayer-funded voyeur porn.
For Democratic extremists like Obama, hating Chief Wahoo and promoting eco-extremism is more important than treating women and minorities with basic human respect.
