A senior U.S. Secret Service inspector admitted today that she destroyed original evidence sought in a long-standing lawsuit alleging that the service routinely discriminates against African American agents. She placed the documents in a "burn bag" for destruction just two days before she was scheduled to testify in the case.
Under questioning by assistant U.S. attorney Michelle Johnson, Hunnicutt said she destroyed the documents because she wanted the most accurate ones to be sent to court.
Hunnicutt said she noticed that some of the surveys, about 50, were misnumbered in January. So she "transferred" the correct information to the newly numbered surveys.
But during the cross-examination, Hogan argued that by destroying the original documents, the court would have no way to independently verify her work as accurate.
