U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped into Joe Biden’s chief Diversity and Inclusion officer Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley of the State Department for her email excluding “straight, white men” and people of the wrong religion from being hired.
The Daily Caller reports:
The senator argued Tuesday that the department’s Equity Action Plan, which changed hiring practices at the agency, is “nothing more than brazen discrimination.” An email from a senior department official described reports from candidates claiming to be denied a position for having a disability or for classifying as “white men, straight white men, [or] not [being] of the right religion.”
“Did you clear this guidance?” Cruz asked during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on ‘diversity, equity and inclusion.’
“I’ve never seen that before,” Abercrombie-Winstanley said.
“So you didn’t know it had been sent,” Cruz clarified.
