(The Hill) Railroad Retirement Board Official Fired

U.S. President Joe Biden announced the firing of U.S. Railroad Retirement Board Inspector General Martin Dickman. The Biden Team has alleged that Dickman fostered a "hostile work environment" and would be replaced by Ben Wagner--currently Inspector General of the Tennessee Valley Authority--to serve in that role with the Railroad Retirement Board on an acting basis. Dismissals of Inspector Generals are often contentious as they are tasked with being watchdogs over their specific agency's actions. However, little, if anything is presently known about the nature of the accusations against Dickman, meaning this could be a question mark for some time. Of note, Dickman began his job as RRB Inspector General in 1994 as a appointee of President Bill Clinton.
