A Fraud Scheme Spanning Many Decades
Eric Marks is a true creature of the Washington D.C. swamp. Despite lacking the skills, character, integrity and experience for this level of pay and responsibility, Eric Marks still receives over $162,000 per year plus federal benefits from U.S. taxpayers, and he has been paid over $2 million in total so-called ‘compensation’ from U.S. taxpayers during his government occupation.
On April 4, 2016, I took a job at the National Labor Relations Board – a.k.a. NLRB, as the Associate Chief Information Officer for Enterprise Applications. I was hired under the Veteran’s preference law as a disabled military veteran to run the agency’s NxGen case management and reporting systems.
“Within weeks of reporting to work, I uncovered obvious system security vulnerabilities, wasteful spending totaling more than $10 million, and contract fraud by the NLRB Chief Information Officer Prem Aburvasamy and my predecessor Sivaram Ghorakavi who had just left my job. I spent the next several months assembling the records and auditing the contracts. I could not believe the level of corruption and deceit involved. I raised these issues constantly to the NLRB Chief Information Officer, Prem Aburvasamy, and he ordered me to stand down. After I resisted, he reassigned me to report to Eric Marks.”
In my first meeting in November 2016 with my new supervisor Eric Marks, I explained in detail Prem Aburvasamy’s fraud scheme, and Eric Marks told me that “military veterans and their styles of leadership are not welcome at NLRB.” In that meeting, Eric Marks issued a threat.
Eric Marks said that if I filed a formal Whistleblower complaint, he would personally ensure that I was retaliated against for blowing the whistle. He told me, “If you come after us, we are going to come after you!” with the arrogance of FBI agent Peter Strzok.
Naturally, I was very disappointed to hear that the military principles that guided my entire life – integrity, honor and service to the nation – were not welcome at the NLRB and could get me fired. But I was on a mission to expose corruption in government if found, and so I decided to escalate the matter.
After meeting with Eric Marks, I reported my whistleblower complaints to the Inspector General David Berry using the Whistleblower hotline. I also made protected Whistleblower complaints about Aburvasamy’s and Ghorakavi’s illegal conduct to Eric Marks and the entire NLRB Board.
On November 30, 2016, I made a whistleblower complaint directly to all NLRB Board Members and the NLRB General Counsel. In that email with the subject “Request for Help” (click this link to read the email), I explained the situation and literally “begged” the NLRB Board Members and the NLRB General Counsel to halt the active retaliation that was being carried out against me by Prem Aburvasamy and Eric Marks for the protected whistleblower complaints that I had already made to Marks and the Inspector General.
The next day, on December 1, 2016 – one day after I sent the email to all the NLRB Board members complaining about Prem Aburvasamy and Eric Marks, the Inspector General David Berry launched a bogus investigation against me in retaliation for making my Whistleblower complaints. His job was to dig up any dirt he could to have me fired. He failed to produce anything, but that didn’t stop Elizabeth Bach from doing what she does best: Fuck People Over.
The Deputy General Counsel at the time, Jennifer Abruzzo, was subsequently fired for coordinating the retaliation against me through Eric Marks and Prem Aburvasamy in order to conceal fraud at the NLRB.
According to Inspector General David Berry’s own semi-annual report that he issued after I was terminated, the IG said, “We investigated a (false) allegation that a GS-15 level employee (John Edwards) threatened to take certain personnel actions against employees without just cause (John Edwards made protected Whistleblower complaints). We did not substantiate the allegation (against Mr. Edwards). We provided management with a summary of our investigative findings (and then Mr. Edwards was fired for blowing the whistle on corruption).”1
On the morning of February 7, 2017, when I reported to work – my government equipment was confiscated by Eric Marks. My network credentials were disabled, and I was escorted from my office located on the third floor at 1015 Half St SE, in Washington, D.C. by an armed uniformed security guard in full view of all NLRB staff and my peers who had been gathered in the hallway to watch me be shamefully escorted out of the building. This public display was cruelly carried out in order to defame my character, harm my reputation, and diminish my credibility as a witness against them. It also sent a signal to the entire workforce – blow the whistle and you will be fired!
Despite being ambushed and tossed from the building, I kept copies of all the reports, documents, and emails that I needed to prove my case in court. I also made recordings of some key meetings that support everything you have read in this article, and I made several Freedom of Information Act requests for the evidence I already had in my possession to protect the evidence and ensure it could not destroyed. Despite my efforts, senior officials including the NLRB Inspector General David Berry and FOIA Officer Synta Keeling were caught tampering with official government records, and despite their illegal and unethical conduct, both continue to be employed. Lucky for me, I still had the evidence that proved the entire NLRB leadership is corrupt.
I subsequently filed a lawsuit with the Merit Systems Protection Board, and the NLRB quickly settled with me and met all my demands in order to avoid accountability and publicity. I was awarded a settlement from the NLRB that was ratified on May 18, 2017. I was reinstated as a federal employee, paid back pay and leave, and reimbursed for all my legal expenses. I then promptly resigned from the agency on June 6, 2017. There was no way on earth that I could ever return to an agency that is so evil and corrupt. In the settlement I agreed to not file another complaint against the NLRB in exchange for me being allowed to publish my story.
After I won my case, Sivaram Ghorakavi was quickly hired back by Prem Aburvasamy to help him conceal his crimes. They are both part of the India mafia inside the federal government who use their corrupt influence in the United States and abroad for illegal profit.
The long reign of terror and corruption carried out by NLRB Inspector General David Berry has finally been recognized. According to Bloomberg Law, “The account of Ring’s complaint against Inspector General David Berry was confirmed by three current and former senior agency personnel and four congressional staffers. They spoke with Bloomberg Law on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue and because the complaint may still be pending at the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency—which oversees IGs at federal agencies.”
If President Trump’s appointees at the NLRB do not act to fire Eric Marks and the rest of his gang, then the American people need to take matters into their own hands and make Whistleblower retaliation a Capital Crime.
Charles Eric Marks is a corrupt government bureaucrat who I believe must be terminated with extreme prejudice. With God’s help, I will pray each day that Eric Marks is struck down by lightning and then tortured in Hell for what he has done to me. If Whistleblower Retaliation was a Capital Crime, then I would not have to pray that God kill this scumbag government bureaucrat – he would already be dead.
See the following court cases for material evidence to substantiate all allegations against named individuals in this article.
As of August 30, 2019, the Department of Labor case decision is delayed because the MSPB doesn’t have a quorum.
Evidence presented in that case is expected to show that Federal Deputy Chief Information Officer Eric Marks’ former boss, Jennifer Abruzzo, acted on instructions from her close friend and former boss, Department of Labor executive Lafe Solomon, to have me fired for blowing the whistle at both agencies.
The evidence in the Department of Labor case will also demonstrate that Eric Marks’ extremely low intelligence and lack of ethics in my view could be an unusable defense for him now that the court documents that won the NLRB case will be introduced at the Department of Labor trial.
That means I get to call NLRB witnesses.
I plan to expose the role of Prem Aburvasamy, Roxanne Rothschild and Synta Keeling in one of the most incredible U.S. government agency scandals in history. I intend to retaliate against the rotten scoundrels Hari Sharma and Ying Xing for their participation and lies.
All my evidence could take many years to be heard because of the backed-up court system and corrupt Department of Justice. It could even take decades for me to complete my retaliation against all the scumbags involved.
Nevertheless, I plan to continue to report this story until hell freezes over.

And I will continue to look forward to the day that all these government pieces of shit die. I will continue to pray for it, every single day I am alive. And I hope to be able to report about the end, of their lives.
