      Herbert’s comment: “These disciplinary matters (NJ and DC) arise out of the same incident. With that said, the statement regarding my undergraduate studies was based upon the need to care for my wife and young daughter. My dedication to protecting the rights of employees for the past decade, should also be given consideration.”
