Fight "separates" USPS boss from job

By Washington Post editors

The Federal Eye is reporting that the top U.S. Postal Service official for the Washington region is out of a job after he got into an argument last week with a female postal worker at the Dulles Processing and Distribution Center in Sterling.

Jerry D. Lane, who served as vice president of operations for the Capital Metro Area since 2006, got into an argument with the building's manager, Kathleen J. Michaels, according to employees familiar with the incident.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Department was called in. Michaels filed misdemeanor assault charges. And Lane was issued a summons to appear in Loudoun General District Court on June 17, according to court records.

He should get the WMATA union to represent him. Those people can get a bus driver rehired after he punched a cop (dressed as McGruff the Crime Dog) in the face while on duty. I'm sure they can handle a little scuffle like this.

Wait a minute. He is not out of a job because of an argument but because of misdemeanor assault charges. Since he had 32 years in he probably said the hell with it and retired.
