Prosecutor acknowledges leaving work early

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A former federal prosecutor who is alleging she was discriminated against because of her mental and physical condition acknowledged leaving work early, even when specifically told to stay until 5 p.m.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1f2TZZC ) Martha Fagg was asked Monday about leaving a half hour early on the first two days after being reassigned from Sioux City to Cedar Rapids due to disciplinary action.

Fagg responded, “I had to take care of my dogs.”

Fagg alleges then-U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose discriminated against her because of her mental and physical conditions. She also alleges Rose discriminated against older employees.

Rose is now a federal judge.

Fagg blames some statements and actions she took on stress because of being forced to sell her home and move to Cedar Rapids.
