A female FBI agent claims in a lawsuit that the federal government did not respond in a responsible way to a former Border Patrol supervisor who was convicted of secretly taping female colleagues using the restroom.

Courthouse News Service reports that the woman, “Agent Anonymous,” asserts that the federal government may have been involved in a cover-up to protect the supervisor, Armando Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was sentenced to 21 months in prison for capturing images of seven women using the restroom between July 2013 and April 2014.

The FBI agent said the federal government failed to respond to on-the-job misconduct by Gonzalez and did not properly vet him prior to his hiring.

“If faced with a report of police misconduct, defendants knew they could evade professional or legal consequences by simply claiming that they were ‘just doing their jobs’ or ‘just trying to protect the public,'” the agent says in the complaint.

CHICAGO — Before secretly taking nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews in at least two cities, Michael David Barrett allegedly called several hotels to find out where Andrews was staying and in one case, reserved the room next door to hers.

The 47-year-old Westmont man then altered the peepholes to Andrews’ room, so he could record videos of her as she undressed, the Federal Bureau of Investigation says.

Today, Barrett appeared in federal court and was ordered transferred to California, where interstate stalking charges were filed against him.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Keys scheduled a hearing Monday to determine whether Barrett would be freed on bond, as his attorney requested, or taken to California in custody.
