Washington: At least three employees at Immigration and Customs Enforcement have alleged inappropriate sexual behavior by a senior Obama administration appointee and longtime aide to Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

The complaints are part of a sexual discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed in May by a senior ICE agent. They accuse ICE chief of staff Suzanne Barr of sexually inappropriate behavior toward employees.

Barr is accused of telling a male subordinate he was "sexy" and asking a personal question about his anatomy. She is also accused of offering to perform a sex act with a male subordinate while on business travel in Bogota, Colombia.

Employee names were censored in affidavits reviewed by The Associated Press.
Barr is on leave while the allegations are investigated and has not responded to requests for comment.
