Baltimore Social Security Farting Gasbag Case Deflated

Feds Withdraw Reprimand Dealt To Gassy Worker
Man’s excessive flatulence was charted at SSA office

(The Smoking Gun, 1/11/2013)

The Social Security Administration has withdrawn a reprimand letter issued last month to an employee who was accused of excessive workplace flatulence that created an “intolerable” and “hostile” environment for coworkers.

The “official reprimand,” issued to the 38-year-old male worker on December 10, was quickly rescinded after SSA senior managers got wind of the proposed sanction. The letter’s withdrawal came days before TSG disclosed its existence in a December 21 story, according to SSA spokesperson Mark Hinkle.

The employee, a claims authorizer who works out of an SSA office in Baltimore, hung up on a reporter when reached this morning at his desk (though he is surely happy to have the matter behind him).
