(COMMENT: GAO works for Congress. In Diersen v. GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors hinted/implied/argued/shouted that they treated me just like Congress want them to treat GAO employees who complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and who had become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)
