How to create a validator or condition based on an Active Directory field?

I need to add a validator (or condition?) to a workflow so that only the people with M, R or E in the Active Directory field "employee.type" can submit the ticket.  Normally I would try to get the Active Directory gurus to create an AD group containing those people, which would automatically sync with Crowd and I would use the Crowd group in my validator.  But I haven't been given much time to get this done and the AD people can be slow.  Can I skip to the chase and create a validator (or condition...I'm never sure which I should use) that looks directly at a reporter's employee.type in active directory?  Thanks for any advice.

Hi @Nancy Bonanno 

I admit that I am not a scripting guy but I imagine you can achieve this with a Validator script.

Another idea is to place these people into a separate Project Role. Then script have a script in the Validator tab that needs to return TRUE (i.e. only people in that Role can see the transition button). 

Just an idea :)
