City of Joliet Considers New Detention Center for Immigrants

 The city of Joliet in Illinois could be home to a new detention center for immigrants facing deportation after residents of suburban Crete derailed a similar plan in their city, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Joliet officials are considering the plan but were short on specifics.

The Tribune said City Manager Tom Thanas met with ICE officials last week in Washington to discuss the issue.

City Council members were briefed on the proposal during a closed-door session last week, the Tribune reported.

“I don’t know enough about it at this point to offer an informed opinion,” Councilwoman Jan Quillman told the tribune. “My understanding is that this is all very preliminary.”

ICE has been looking for a site near Chicago where a private company would build and operate the detention center.

Millie Parsons, Longest Serving Employee in FBI History, Dies at Age 99

Millie Parsons

Mildred C. Parsons, the longest working FBI employee, who retired in 2002, died on Sunday. She was 99.

In June 2002, I was working at the Washington Post and I had the opportunity to interview Mildred Parsons, a sweet woman who worked as an FBI secretary in Washington for 62 years, 9 months and 2 days — never once calling in sick.

I wrote back then:

Yesterday, clad in a bright-pink dress suit adorned with a white corsage, Parsons, 88, the longest-serving employee in FBI history, retired. Her final day on the job included a visit to the office of the director, Robert S. Mueller III, and a party, during which former and current co-workers showered her with hugs and unbridled adulation.

“No, I’m not going to cry,” she told well-wishers. “It is sad, but at the same time, it’s nice. Everyone has to retire sometime. It’s time for me to leave.”

In nearly 63 years on the job, Parsons, known as Millie, had a headache or two and a cold, but no ailment serious enough to make her stay home.

“I may have sneezed or something, or had a little bit of a cold,” she said. “If I had a headache, I just went in there. If I was around people, I would forget.”

Parsons died on Sunday, reportedly from heart failure. She was 99.

I got emails from folks who worked with her letting me know. She was one of those FBI legends.

A funeral service  will be held on Thursday. A posting on the funeral page website said: “Beloved wife of the late Harry B. Parsons; survived by her nephews Robert Engle, Marion “Skip” Toms, niece Barbara Farmer, her friend and dance partner Robert M. Harris and numerous great nieces and nephews.”

ATF Agent John Dodson Suing Time Over Fast and Furious Article

John Dodson

By DYLAN BYERS
Politico

John Dodson, the special agent who blew the whistle on the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, is suing Time for libel, POLITICO has learned.

The lawsuit comes in response to a Fortune magazine article published in June that asserted Dodson had complained about the gunwalking in part because it was his fault guns had been intercepted, and because of a longstanding personal grudge with the ATF supervisor who had been tasked with overseeing the Fast and Furious operation. The article’s principle thesis is that the ATF “never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.”

The lawsuit, “for an amount in excess of $75,000.00,” calls the article “fictitious in the sense that it contains facts that Defendant [Time Inc., which owns Fortune] knew to be false prior to publication.” It also charges Time with being “negligent, grossly negligent, willful and wanton” and says it “purposely avoided the truth” by failing to interview Dodson. The summons was issued on Oct. 15.

 A 20-year-old Louisiana woman who claimed she was set on fire by racists who scrawled KKK and a racial slur on her car made up the incident, state police said Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.

Police said forensic evidence shows Sharmeka Moffitt set herself on fire on Sunday and invented the story of a hate crime, which the FBI was investigating.

Moffitt received extensive burns on more than half her body, according to the Daily News.

“The evidence does not support the statement that she was attacked by three males,” said Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Lt. Julie Lewis.

The woman’s fingerprints were found on a lighter and lighter fluid, police said.

Local police will decide whether to charge Moffitt.

 George C. Venizelos, head of the FBI’s Philadelphia division, will be named assistant director in charge of the bureau’s New York field office, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports, citing anonymous sources knowledgeable of the move.

A New Jersey native, the 52-year-old served as interim assistant director in charge of the New York office for several months in 2010 until Janice Fedarcyk was given the job.

Venizelos became special agent in charge of the Philadelphia office, the same post Fedarcyk had held.

Fedarcyk left the bureau for the private sector this summer.

The FBI wouldn’t comment on Venizelos’ new job until there was an official announcement, possibly as early as today.
