On March 1, 2013, Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell issued an anti-harassment memo to all FS employees:
I reiterate my strong commitment to maintaining a harassment-free and respectful workplace. Harassment or discrimination in any form will not be tolerated in the Forest Service.
His memo explains that Sexual harassment is behavior of a sexual nature that is unwelcome and offensive to the person or persons it is targeted toward. Examples of harassing behavior may include unwanted physical contact . . .
Would someone just turn out the lights in the WO? That would be more climate saving than anything Herr Gröpenfuhrer has ever accomplished.
PS: Leo Kay is the Forest Service’s director of communications and the presumptive genius who came up with this foolishness. Here’s what Leo was before 2010:
Leo spent the previous three years as a political appointment to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Communications Director for the state’s landmark climate change program.
