URGENT: A senior Obama administration political appointee is resigning amid allegations of lewd behavior, FoxNews.com has confirmed.
Suzanne Barr, chief of staff to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton, is accused of sexually inappropriate behavior toward employees.
"I have been the focus of unfounded allegations designed to destroy my reputation, but of greater concern however, is the threat these allegations represent to the reputation of this agency and the men and women who proudly serve their country by advancing ICE's mission," Barr said in a letter to Morton, which was obtained by FoxNews.com.
"As such, I feel it is incumbent upon me to take every step necessary to prevent further harm to the agency and to prevent this from further distracting from our critical work," she said. "Therefore, it is with great regret that I submit my resignation as Chief of Staff for Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
