Red Flagging or Red Baiting SSA Judges
When California Rep. Jackie Speier is not chasing military officers looking for sexual sadists, she is following Social Security Judges trying to "red flag" them. She proposes a system to review cases from "red flag" judges. Judges who have high approval rates send up 'red flags'. Speier has had enough. The Democrat from San Mateo who has been on the front lines fighting to expose and correct the epidemic of sexual assault and harassment in the military has turned her attention to her own colleagues. Representative Speier introduced a bill that would require all House members and staff to take sexual harassment training every two years.
Rep. Jackie Speier, California Democrat, one of the heads the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on health care, say Social Security employees should be allowed to look at the social media profiles (such as, Facebook, Twitter, etc) of those applying for disability, reasoning that photos and other information people post can expose the applicants as able-bodied.
