I am a college professor and anther professor accused me as well as another colleague that we want to control the department and harm four members of our department in an email which was sent to all tenured members of our department, our Chair and Dean. We were going through a reaffirmation process for the Chair of our department. Three members voted yes and three members voted no for the reaffirmation of the Chair. It is not the first time that this person has been writing these things about me. This person has been writing malicious things about me for the past 19 years. It is time for me to stop this person for damaging my professional carrier. I was planning to run for the Chairmanship of the department. By slandering me this person has ruined my future aspiration of becoming the Chair of the department and the future salary that I would have earned as a Chair. This person also worked very hard unsuccessfully to deny my promotion to the associate professor rank , in 2003, and I earned that rank after I complained to the state authorities and subsequently won my case. There is a long history here.
