The New Racket: Campus Rape Investigations

By Ira Stoll

The “revolving door” through which government officials cash out on their public service has a new destination — campus rape investigations.

To the list of defense contractors recruiting retiring Pentagon officials, corporate law firms hiring former SEC and Justice Department officials, and trade associations signing up former senators, add another new hot recruiting field for the private sector. Universities are snapping up employees with experience related to the federal Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, which is in charge of enforcing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

That law is best known for boosting the presence of women’s sports on college campuses, spawning a sports-bra company of the same name. Lawyers with experience related to the federal Office of Civil Rights are in high demand at the moment, though, not because of any ability coaching undergraduate soccer players or designing athletic apparel. Rather, they are being sought after for their ability to coach college administrators through the legal mine field that is the latest guidance from the Obama administration on “Title IX and Sexual Violence.”

Later this month, Valerie Simons will start a $150,000-a-year job as Title IX coordinator at the University of Colorado. The Boulder Daily Camera reports that Ms. Simons “served as a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Education Section, where she was the lead attorney in charge of enforcing Title IX and other civil rights laws around the U.S.” In her new position, she will report directly to the university’s chancellor.

In May of this year, Stanford announced that Catherine Criswell would join that university as its Title IX coordinator after a 19-year career at the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.

Harvard last year hired as its Title IX coordinator Mia Karvonides, another Department of Education Office of Civil Rights lawyer; a Harvard memo at the time reported by the Boston Globe reported that her “duties at the Office of Civil Rights included investigating post-secondary and elementary/secondary institutions for compliance with Title IX. “

RW note: This is another good reason for males to stay away from college. These politically correct, crony, revolving door beasts will be roaming the corridors of campuses throughout the country looking for sexual "assaults" to investigate. It will be dangerous to date a woman on campus, or, in some cases, to even talk to women, if they are the huffy type. I would leave these women and the college "experience" to the libwaps.


  1. Given the amount of money colleges lose on sports (and on womens sport) from the post a month or so and the massive ballooning in costs, this is all going to end very badly for somebody.

  2. If enough men catch on, women are going to have a tough time with that MRS degree.
