Before joining CBP on June 24, Katharine Gorka was a political appointee in the Homeland Security policy office who stirred controversy for her role in the department's efforts to combat violent extremism in the US.

3. She should have chosen a better excuse

Retiring because she wants to spend more time with the repulsive mr. gorka is a very hard sell.
