From a comment to Joe Davidson’s Under Carolyn Lerner, special counsel office is doing its job now, observers say, in The Washington Post (June 28, 2012):

I quit OSC in disgust in 1983 after the selling out of the agency by Reagan’s appointee (still hard to say his name, now a federal judge) and MSPB chief judge Ruth Prokop’s hostility toward the concept of whistleblower protection and against OSC itself. Great attorneys and investigators had been hounded into oblivion when lucky – but into undeserved disgrace for most.
I hope Carolyn Lerner has exorcised those ghosts. Kudos and appreciations to her for her accomplishments.
To NIshimoto and everyone else: stay tuned for Dissenters’ Digest for 1982 and ’83.
(By the way, that Reagan appointee was Alex Kozinski, who is now chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.)
