Obama Advisor Pleaded Guilty To Sex Crimes

William Mendoza, a senior policy advisor to former President Barack Obama, pleaded guilty to sex crimes, according to documents obtained by The Daily Mail.

Mendoza was convicted for trying to take pictures up the skirts of women he'd follow on the D.C. Metro. He resigned days after being arrested and charged with the sex crime in November 2016.

"The former executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education, who was also a Department of Education official, attempted to take photographs and videos up women’s skirts at least four times while using his government issued iPhone in July 2016," notes The Washington Examiner.

An investigation by the Metro Police Transit Department found video surveillance footage which caught Mendoza red-handed.

In addition to using his work-issued phone, Mendoza was on the clock and using a taxpayer-funded travel card while he was carrying out the sex crime, reveal documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The former Obama advisor was also caught watching a secretly-recorded video of a woman taking off her clothes in a dressing room, though it's unclear if it was Mendoza who recorded the footage himself.

Mendoza pleaded guilty in January 2017 to the sex crime charges and according to his lawyer, has since "received treatment."

“Mr. Mendoza has taken responsibility for this charge of attempted voyeurism,” said Mendoza’s lawyer Paul Kiyonaga. “He’s received treatment for the underlying issues that gave rise to this incident, and, with the strong support of his family, is moving forward productively with his life.”
