The House Homeland Security Committee has been probing the circumstances of a Halloween party held last year for Department of Homeland Security Employees.

The Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration and Customs Enforcement was photographed with the employee at the party, although it was more than three months until those photos would become public.
