Surveillance footage shows one of President Obama's senior officials following a woman around a DC Metro station and taking a picture up her skirt with his cell phone
This was over 2 years ago, when obama was still in office, and we're only learning about it now
This was with a government issued phone during work hoursHis arrest and conviction were never made public until DailyMail.com acquired the report of the investigation and the footage through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Mendoza was arrested and charged in November 2016 after the woman, as well as three others, complained about his behavior cops.
He pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted voyeurism in January 2017, was given suspended 90-day prison sentence, one year’s probation and was fined $100. He has not worked in public office since stepping down.
The married father-of-three was caught carrying out the vile act on July 5, 2016
He pleaded guilty to attempted voyeurism and resigned from his job
the timeline raises some questions
The incident occured in July 2016 but he wasn't arrested and charged until November 2016. There was an election on November 8, 2016.
From elsewhere, he was charged on November 25, 2016.
Did they perhaps wa it until after the election?
He pled guilty in January 2017 and resigned his job. But President Trump took office on January 20, 2017, when he'd have been out of work anyway. I hope resigning from his job wasn't part of the plea bargain.
It's not the first time he's been in the news
