Beauty Takes on the Beast

It may be true that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder but this Latin music singer isn’t being subtle about her appearance. Erika Bonilla, a former FBI agent in New Mexico, filed suit against the Department of Justice for alleged race and gender discrimination. She claims her former employer failed to adequately address the complaints she made in regards to repeated harassment from her coworkers. She is also claiming her coworkers were jealous of her appearance and professional singing career. Bonilla’s lawsuit includes allegations of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. The case caught the attention of the media receiving mixed reviews. At this time it appears that the FBI has declined to respond to statements made by Bonilla or her attorney, Monnica Garcia. Although Bonilla’s statements may carry great weight with the public, the Court will ultimately decide whether her allegations have merit in the eyes of the law.
