WASHINGTON, DC - April 19: Mary Rhone, a former U.S. Capitol Police officer who now works as a civilian on Capitol Hill, and Sharon Blackmon-Malloy, a retired Capitol Police officer and vice president of the United States Capitol Black Police Association (USCBPA), during a news conference in the Cannon House Office Building on the USCBPA's intent to file a complaint against the Capitol Police (USCP) charging racial discrimination - exactly 10 years and one week after more than 200 black Capitol Police officers first formally alleged rampant racial discrimination in the department. Both Rhone and Blackmon-Malloy are plaintiffs in existing cases against the department. The grievance sent to the Office of Compliance Tuesday and an accompanying D.C. Bar complaint filed Monday claim that Capitol Police employment attorney Frederick Herrera misled the court to frustrate a longstanding race-discrimination case  and that he himself subjects African-American employees, particularly women, to a hostile workplace.
