I write to express my concern ...

I write to express my concern about reports of an incident at a June 12, 2012 public meeting in New Iberia, Louisiana involving Rachel Hranitzky, a Senior Trial Attorney in the Civil Rights Division.[1] It is my understanding that a formal complaint about the incident has been sent to the Department of Justice.

...
It is our understanding that on [June 12, 2012], Ms. Hranitzky arrived at the meeting and immediately asked if any journalists were present. When a Daily Iberian reporter attending the meeting responded in the affirmative, she informed him that he could neither record the meeting nor quote her statements. According to other attendees, the meeting had been advertised as a public meeting intended to address concerns with the city fire department's hiring and promotion process. However, citing 'special rules' of the Department of Justice for agency attorneys, Ms. Hranitzky instructed that her statements be neither recorded nor quoted. When the reporter questioned this instruction on the basis that Ms. Hranitzky was speaking at a public meeting, she apparently threatened him with the possibility that the DOJ could call his editors and publisher, and warned that he would not 'want to get on the Department of Justice's bad side.' Furthermore, it is our understanding that Ms. Hranitzky demanded the reporter leave the meeting, although-after making his objection known but agreeing not to quote her-he was ultimately allowed to remain.
According to one report on the incident, Ms. Hranitzky "`grew belligerent and threatening'" while speaking with the reporter.[2] After the meeting, she apparently told the reporter that she had been quoted in the past and gotten in trouble with the DOJ.[3] More specifically, Ms. Hranitzky told the reporter that the DOJ "`keeps a short leash on how their attorneys are quoted and she could get in big trouble if she were quoted in a newspaper.'"[4]
...
5. If the reports are accurate and Ms. Hranitzky told the reporter that he could not quote anything she said at the public meeting, provide a citation to the legal authority justifying that statement.
...
8. According to the reports, Ms. Hranitzky told the reporter that unless he complied with her orders about not quoting her, the DOJ might contact his editors or publisher and he would not want to get on the DOJ's "bad side.
...
14. Since 2007, has the DOJ received any complaints, whether informal or formal, regarding statements or conduct by its employees at a public meeting, proceeding or event similar to Ms. Hranitzky's reported statements and conduct in New Iberia?


Attorney Rachel Hranitzky ...

Attorney Rachel Hranitzky allegedly announced at the June 12 public meeting in New Iberia, La., that the department had "special rules" that allowed her to prohibit a Daily Iberian reporter from reporting her statements. She also allegedly tried to have the reporter removed when he questioned her. Hranitzky then allegedly threatened the reporter that the department would call the newspaper's editor and publisher and warned that he would not "want to get on the Department of Justice's bad side."

...
It further does not acknowledge what "special rules" Hranitzky was referring to in June.
