Oh The Irony: Discrimination Investigation Accused Of Discrimination

Posted on April 3, 2014

The federal agency tasked with investigating allegations of discrimination in consumer financial transactions was accused of discriminatory treatment of its own employees in a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Wednesday.

Angela Martin, a senior enforcement attorney with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), alleged that a ring of managers within the CFPB favors men over women in promotions, performance reviews, and the work place environment.

“I am a victim of discrimination by the bureau dating back to May 2012, and I have suffered severe retaliation since December 2012, which continues through today,” Martin said during an emotional testimony. “Sadly, my story is not unique. My colleagues likewise have suffered and are suffering at the hands of inexperienced, unaccountable managers. I am glad this hearing is being held because, based on my observations at the Bureau, I have concluded that the Bureau is sorely in need of effective oversight, and that Bureau management needs to be held accountable, particularly with regards to its internal management practices.”

Martin said that after she filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity office within CFPB, her manager retaliated against her by informing her that her subordinates would now report to him. He then threatened to bring counter claims, took away investigative duties, and held her responsible for work she hadn’t done, said Martin.

She said there is a ring of upper level managers in the CFPB division she works in — the consumer responses division led by Scott Pluta — engages in behavior which discriminates against females and minorities. During her testimony, Martin said she had been told that Pluta was “developing his own empire within the office of consumer responses within the CFRP.”

Martin charged that Pluta hoped to fill the office of consumer responses with cronies and so-called “yes men” who would do anything he asked — because they all were thankful for the opportunity he was giving them.

    Everything in this federal government is in dismay for the American people! America is boxed in by a corrupt government that is laced with lies and failures!

America must resist being oppressed and come together as one to rid this tyrant government, and soon!

  2. Women will never stop with the discrimination charges any more than the sodomite will stop trying to force you to accept them. Women are such cry babies, they should be at home raising kids intead of being out working. The left goal is to destroy the family unit by making the women work. Women cannot do the work a man can do, bullshit all day and it still won’t change the fact. Women in the infantry is just plain stupid, I spent 21 years as a grunt and not one day of it was easy, no women in fox holes. If women want equal pay jion the service where a pfc is paid as a pfc, no diff

    I have a friend who used to work for a state agency – state and agency to be unnamed – that prosecutes businesses for supposed discrimination against certain types of handicapped persons. He told me that of the many people that worked there, not one was handicapped.

    As I’ve said before – when the politicians and bureaucrats make these rules they are intended only for us, not for them. If they had the slightest thought that they would have to live by the same rules, they would not make most of them.

    The obvious solution is to abolish this agency – along with all others not authorized by Article 1 Section 8. Especially the NSA and TSA. But at least no one can accuse them of discrimination – they are equal opportunity offenders.

    Exactly. The same thing that could be said for this woman "victim" in the discrimination bureau could be said for all of us- "Live by the sword, die by the sword" (Jesus Christ almighty God, Matthew 26:52)
