WASHINGTON – Secret Service supervisors engaged in crude sexual jokes and racially derogatory banter about blacks, and passed around an anecdote about a possible assassination of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, according to internal e-mails disclosed in a federal court filing on Friday by lawyers for black Secret Service agents.
The filing includes 10 e-mails that were among documents the agency recently turned over to lawyers for the black agents as part of an increasingly bitter discrimination case. The messages were written mainly between 2003 and 2005, and were sent to and from e-mail accounts of at least 20 Secret Service supervisors.
The e-mails offer a glimpse into the darker recesses of a secretive agency that is known for protecting presidents and other dignitaries but whose culture is regarded as one of the most insular in federal law enforcement.
