US Forest Service: First They Raped Her, Then They Fired Comanche Woman Firefighter
Native American whistleblower who was raped and beaten on the job fired from US Forest Service
by Lesa Donnelley, Vice President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees
Alicia Dabney,a Comanche Native American, and GS-462-4 Apprentice Firefighter, was fired from the Forest Service today.
This firing occurred less than one week after she participated in the Whistle Blower/Human Rights & Civil Rights Summit in Washington. The group of California/Oregonfemale federal employees who traveled to Washington were accused by the Administration of practicing partisan politics.
The Obama Administration levelled a massive amount of pressure against the women. Threats from their California districts made their way all the way to DC.
