FBI releases ‘turbotspeed audit’ defense of sex auditions
Fox News reports the FBI released a defense of its own sex auditing strategy after a New York judge ruled that the FBI did not follow proper protocol for the audits it conducted on female applicants to security jobs.
The court order issued Friday is the latest setback for the FBI, which is facing renewed criticism after it was revealed earlier this year that it conducted hundreds of sexual auditions of applicants to jobs in the government, including a high-profile investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
A court document shows that while some auditions were conducted with female candidates, “most were conducted only with male candidates.”
The FBI, however, has maintained that it used the same standards for male and female applicants and that it complied with “proper” policies for conducting auditions, including the use of standardized auditing tools.
