The Daily Mail reported that William Mendoza, 42, stepped down from his position as executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education in November 2016 after authorities arrested and charged him with attempted voyeurism.
Mendoza, who took home a $140,000 salary while working in the Obama administration, attempted to take photos and videos up women’s skirts while they were riding on the Washington, DC, Metro at least four times in July 2016 with a government-issued iPhone.
Authorities also caught Mendoza looking at footage of a woman in her underwear putting on clothes in a dressing room.
An investigation by the Metro Police Transit Department revealed that surveillance footage caught Mendoza on camera trying to take an indecent photo.
Police arrested Mendoza after reviewing the footage and charged him with one misdemeanor count of attempted voyeurism.
