Homeland Security officials are investigating an incident in which a swastika was drawn on the third floor of a building from the department’s St. Elizabeth campus in Washington, DC.
The incident, which was first reported by CNN on Friday, lead the department to issue a statement condemning the act.
“Unfortunately, today a hand drawn swastika was located on the third floor,” Principal Deputy Undersecretary for the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy said in the email, adding that “there is no room in the workplace for such symbols of hate.”
The message prompted a response from another employee, who unintentionally replied to everyone in the email chain: “Check out the latest I&A insanity — as if leadership really cares.”
