State Department watchdog finds fault in conduct of U.S. Ambassador to Britain

Ambassador Woody JohnsonU.S. Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson has made insensitive and inappropriate comments during his tenure, including about race, religion and sex, the State Department’s inspector general has found, judging that morale in some parts of the mission has dropped.

In a report published on Wednesday, the inspector general’s office said it asked the relevant State Department bureau to conduct further review based on its findings and take action, a recommendation the agency disagreed with.

“Offensive or derogatory comments, based on an individual’s race, color, sex, or religion, can create an offensive working environment and could potentially rise to a violation of EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) laws,” it said.

TVNL Comment: This is an addition to Johnson's surrender to the President by asking UK officials to hold the British Open at Trump's club.  Illlegal move.  Unethical at best.
