The Curious Firing of Gerald Walpin Gets … Curiouser

Questions arose immediately when news got out that Sacramento Inspector General Gerald Walpin had been abruptly fired from his position. After a few weeks went by, the story continued to unfold and now even more people are beginning to question the situation.

Walpin was fired in what he says is a direct response to an inspection of Sacramento Governor Kevin Johnsons funding for his St. Hope Academy program. Walpin says that he found a “gross misappropriation” of Americorps funding.

The former Inspector General is claiming that in releasing him from his position the Obama was directly contradicting a protection act that the President had personally supported back when he was a Senator.
