Documents Detail Case for Walpin's Dismissal
washingtonpost.com ^ | July 1 2009 (1 hour ago) | Ed O'Keefe

Posted on 07/01/2009 4:42:17 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

Documents Detail Case for Walpin's Dismissal Documents delivered to lawmakers this week expose a frequently confrontational and petty relationship over the past several years between officials at the Corporation for National and Community Service and the group's inspector general, Gerald Walpin. President Obama fired the Bush appointee last month, citing a lack of confidence.

Former Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin. (AP)Lawmakers almost immediately raised concerns with the dismissal, suggesting the White House failed to follow proper procedure in removing the Bush appointee and did not provide adequate reasons for the dismissal. The White House outlined its concerns in a letter to lawmakers, suggesting Walpin appeared confused, disoriented and unable to answer questions at a late May Corporation board meeting.

This article leads one to believe that the WH has officially replied. Yet it only says the same thing over and over. With a link to the community service page.

I do not know what to make of this one hour old supposed news... Other than 0bama has nothing more in evidence than the man was confused.

It looks like (this is a MSM weak report) that 0bama is awaiting the 30 days and there will be no hearing.

The letter is dated 6/16, doesn’t detail or explain anything.

Isn’t a petty and confrontational environment usually what happens when you get the crooks cornered?

Yes, nothing new here. Exactly the same accusations from the same people in the same contexts as was originally circulated.

WP is just recycling it as new and “improved”.

I think this is it.

The question is... Since the FBI has opened an investigation How can Eric Holder not hold a huge conflict of interest?

They are also claiming Walpin was resigning under Obama. I do not recall Walpin stating this. It is so obvious 0bama wants Walpin out because he opened a viable FBI investigation that does not make 0bama look good AT ALL and could shut down one of Obama’s slush funds.

-- This article leads one to believe that the WH has officially replied. --

It led me to believe that the Corporation had provided evidence to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The linked documents are "new" and worth review.

The supposed "news" here is that the Corporation has provided evidence that Walpin is ignorant of EEOC procedure, and that Walpin is tolerant of racist and sexist humor in the workplace.

FWIW, I posted a duplicate link to the same article, you were quicker than I was in getting this here. I've asked Admin Moderator to remove my later/dupe, link here in case both threads catch comments.

From what I’ve heard, including from Walpin, himself, (on television)resignation was not a consideration for him. He rejected the ‘one hour notice’ and was fired, period.

And he’s not going quietly — a very brave thing for someone to stand up to Ol’ Evil Eye.

The WP can be counted on to defend the ‘Bama’s corrupt actions without any critical examination whatsoever. The MSM is tanking because everything they print and say is totally partisan and completely predictable. Who wants to listen to the same old tired mantra over and over?

I think you have it right. If there were actual documentation aside from the collection of perjorative adjectives the WH tried, they'd have made it abundantly clear. The Post's use of the word "documents" seems an obvious ploy to create impressions of something substantive and legal when it's nothing of the sort. The WH put all the previous gossipy crap in a binder with a really nifty looking cover page, section headers and carefully chosen font. Voila. A document.

Does anyone know where the fake newsletter came from, who was behind it? The memos seem rather tame, nothing shocking, but the newsletter is odd - did Walprin allegedly have something to do with it?

Thank you.

So, Michelle is ‘appointing’ Jackie to the senior adviser position. Sounds like a czarina to me.
