I’ll bet we’ll see this on Beck!
Zer0 acting stupidly again.
Isn’t this the guy Present Radar Ears sid was “cofused”?
"Sid? Lol, Said".
Got that, but "Cofused"?
A case of runaway fingers. I've had that before, too! LOL!
A win for the good guys! Obama is a fascist Stalin-wannabe, but fortunately, he is a lame & incompetent fascist Stalin-wannabe.
Why should we be surprised? Walpin did nothing wrong but was smeared by vicious attacks from the Obamanation drones.
Give him back his job!
Any bets that Walpin gets his job back?
thats the travesty. cleared yes but never reinstated.
Even if he gets his job back, Johnson caught red-handed, was given a deal to avoid criminal charges. Focused on the injustice of firing Walpin, no one noticed what was happening behind the scenes with Johnson & the Feds. The brouhaha that Walpin's firing made was just laying cover for saving Johnson.
"... By then, the investigation of Johnson and how he had used federal funds for his St. HOPE agency to run schools and other endeavors had been closed without criminal charges. The federal government agreed to settle the matter with Johnson and St. HOPE agreeing to repay $400,000 in funds."
Cleared by US attorney...what a joke. There should NEVER have been an inquiry. Getting a decline by an AUSA and taking it over his head for review is not unheard of. Once it is declined ciminally, there is no proviso against putting the info out in the press as it is now a civil or administrative matter and the public has a right to know.
Exactly. My point.
Long odds, no kidding. Walpin will play Hell getting his job back. It will cost him more than it is worth to get his job back, unless the point of honor over rides any other consideration for him. Whatever he decides, I wish him well.
LOL, I’m patient zero for the typo virus.
(typos pop up wherever I am present.)
Where does he go to get his reputation back?
A win for the honest man.
i don’t read it,but if the past is a harbinger of the future,buried deep in the NY Times.
Now, he says, he wants his job back...
Walpin filed suit in federal court in Washington, D.C., in July alleging that he was fired improperly while investigating whether Johnson had misused federal grant funds. The government is trying to have the case dismissed, but Walpin filed documents in court late Monday opposing that.
Among the documents was an Oct. 19 letter from the Integrity Committee of the Council of the Inspectors General for Integrity and Efficiency telling him that the probe against him had been closed.
And of course, for all the members of Congress expressing outrage about his firing, they've done nothing.
The DOJ picked the wrong guy to stomp on this time. Whatever the outcome, he's not going down without a legal, and very public, fight.
