(cont) On July 18, 2004 I was accused of actions I did not commit by Mike Thompson, which questioned my professional and personal integrity and implied a direct threat to me and it seemed as though Mike Thompson had a personal agenda in his character assassination of me, and is trait exhibited frequently by Mike Thompson to clear his own wrongdoing. Those allegations are included in the document containing my statement I have attached. I reported this to Randy Hicks, and Rinzy Nocero. An investigation was initiated on August 28, 2004 and in the interim, Rinzy Nocero left the company. I provided a written statement on e-mail, which has been removed from my computer along with another document containing sensitive material and both related to Mike Thompson. I did not remove it, and would like to know who removed it from my computer when it was updated in February 2007. Fortunately I had saved the document containing my statement on a disk, and have provided you with the electronic copy to validate its existence. Not once has anyone followed up with me on this investigation, or contacted me as to the findings of this investigation, nor the standing of this investigation. I do know for a fact that during the investigation in his statement Mike Thompson made the statement that he was going to “get rid of Bill Owens” and admitted to the fact. Also in my statement I provided you on that investigation, it states that Mike Thompson was aware of illegal questioning of an Area Director candidate by Ramon Maza. I also suggest that Mike Thompson’s use of his company e-mail be investigated as to inappropriate e-mails he sent to a female manager at #142 making comments about her beauty and children. His interaction with female Area Directors should be investigated, and is currently the topic of discussion in his region as to his motivation. Since that point, I have been asked not to use certain management recruiters, and the explanation on Mike Thompsons e-mail to me was “it’s a Nocero thing”. I have been asked not to speak to Mario Nocero concerning work, who has been my friend and co worker for over fifteen years and someone I developed and mentored. I have had comments made to me referring to the “Nocero Clan” by Mike Thompson as well.
