Hillary Clinton sued by employee for age discrimination

Elizabeth Colton, a 64-year-old Foreign Service Officer, has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

After being offered a position at the U.S. Embassy in Algiers, Algeria, Colton was shocked when she was informed by the State Department that her job offer was being rescinded because she was only one year away from the mandatory retirement age of 65.

Ironically, Clinton is only two years younger than Colton, but the State Department mandatory retirement rule does not apply to political appointees.  Colton’s lawyer commented, “Imagine if someone told Hillary Clinton she couldn’t be secretary of state because she would turn 65 before her term is up.”
