“HOW IS IT LEGAL FOR A U.S. GOVERNMENT LAWYER TO CONDUCT HERSELF THIS WAY?”
Bloomberg Law reported that NLRB Chairman John Ring filed a formal complaint against his Inspector General David Berry to have him fired for concealing evidence against Roxanne Rothschild and her husband Bryan Burnett and for ruthlessly retaliating against the whistleblower who blew the lid off their illegal operation. As of publication, there is no word yet whether there will be any arrests in the case before or after Rothschild and her husband are terminated. Roxanne Rothschild’s husband is Bryan Burnett Chief Information Officer at EEOC. You can only imagine the corrupt mess he has created over there after leaving the NLRB.
Letter To Congress About Roxanne Rothschild
I am writing to you today to request that you Fire Roxanne Rothschild!
Roxanne Rothschild was promoted last week by the Trump administration despite being a lifetime federal government bureaucrat in Washington, D.C. who was accused of leading a multi-year scheme with her husband to defraud the government of millions of dollars and retaliate against a whistleblower. In an internal email dated October 22, 2018, the NLRB announced that effective immediately Roxanne Rothschild had replaced Gary Shinners as the Executive Secretary at National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Rothschild has a checkered past. The NLRB Inspector General David Berry received two whistleblower complaints about Ms. Rothschild in 2016 and 2017. The complaints each contained substantial evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Ms. Rothschild participated in a scheme with her husband to commit contract fraud at the NLRB. The value of the fraud is millions of dollars. The complaints also show that Rothschild conspired with Prem Aburvasamy and Eric Marks who worked for her husband to retaliate against a whistleblower who made a formal complaint to the Inspector General.1
Senior Congressional Aid Yovi Alvarez who works for Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) can verify that the congressman was first made aware of this complaint on December 8, 2017, when a federal agent from Homeland Security ambushed the home of a reporter in Florida and issued physical threats against his family for speaking out about corruption at the NLRB.
A source close to Rothschild said, “Roxanne has nurtured some very special relationships with executives and board members and others who travel to D.C. each week from other states, far away from their loving wives and families.”
According to another source, Rothschild has used her special personal relationships inside the office for her personal career advancement. Coincidentally, Ms. Rothschild met and married her current husband Bryan Burnett while working late nights together at the NLRB. According to the IG David Berry, Bryan Burnett left the agency sheepishly in early 2016, after a conflict of interest charge was first reported through the IG hotline. The hotline is widely known at the agency to be a faux anonymous online system that was taken down earlier this year to shield the public from the massive corruption at the NLRB.2
The complaint says that Roxanne Rothschild and her husband Bryan Burnett together were in charge of the NLRB’s technology investment portfolio for ten years from 2006 through December 2015. The couple managed a $160 million taxpayer funded budget for technology during that period, a sum that is more than 3x-times the cost of comparable government agencies to procure and administer technology for their employees. The NLRB has less than 1600 employees.
To put this in perspective, imagine that you were given $10,000 from taxpayers for each employee in your business to buy them a new smart phone and laptop and keep them connected to the Internet. Now imagine that you receive this amazing ‘gift’ of $10,000 every single year you are in business. At the NLRB, they did not use this money to buy anything new – and all the old equipment and software is falling apart, so what happened to all that money? There has been no investigation by the IG or any accountability for anyone and whenever it gets reported, the whistleblower gets fired. That is the culture at the NLRB.
The NLRB is an independent U.S. federal government agency with responsibilities for enforcing U.S. labor law. I was hired in April 2016, as Associate CIO to fix a portfolio of failing software applications that suffered for many years because of the incompetent management and corrupt practices of Roxanne Rothschild and her husband Bryan Burnett. I was fired for reporting their crimes.
With this promotion, Roxanne Rothschild and Bryan Burnett together will rake in over $400,000 each year from taxpayers with a very comfortable retirement plan thanks to U.S. taxpayers and all the Corruption at the National Labor Relations Board.
Tell President Trump to end this insanity and “Fire Roxanne Rothschild!” The time has come to require honesty and integrity from federal workers at the NLRB.
