Akin Gump: Victim of Job Harassment Assuming the Guilt that Peoperly attaches to the Employer

Survivors of childhood sexual abuse experience an array of overwhelming and intense feelings. These may include feelings of fear, guilt, and shame. Abusers have been known to tell children that it is the fault of the child that they are abused, shifting the blame away from the abuser, where it belongs, and placing it on the child. Along with this, abusers may threaten or bribe the child into not speaking up; convincing the child that he or she will never be believed.  The reaction of a survivor’s friends and family to the disclosure of the abuse also has the potential to trigger immense feelings of guilt, shame and distrust, particularly if those individuals denied that the abuse was taking place, or chose to ignore it.

I am a survivor of a subtle but devastating form of job harassment known as mobbing.  The survivors of third-degree mobbing (the most severe) frequently go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  According to the experts, in victims who develop PTSD the "mental effects were fully comparable with PTSD from war or prison camp experiences."

Perhaps in mobbing victims (especially in cases in which the employer denies that any harassment ever occurred) there is a tendency of the harassed employee to assume the guilt that properly attaches to the employer.  Like the abused child I was told that any harassment I experienced was my own fault.  In a sense I was bribed by my employer not to divulge the firm's secrets.  My brother-in-law cautioned me not to tell anyone about the job harassment because I would not be believed.  Perhaps these behaviors by various parties had the effect of triggering immense feelings of guilt especially since everyone in my environment denied that job harassment took place, or chose to ignore it." 


Dear Mr. Durst: 

 I was employed as a law clerk at Sagot & Jennings during the period you practiced at the firm as an associate. 

Here's an update about my current status.  It appears that I am committing a major financial fraud, a felony, against the Government of the United States.  My crime might be termed the "perfect crime."  Perhaps it is unusual that you ever come across the perfect crime or perfect felony, but this may be such a case.  Feel free to contact federal authorities about this communication.

Dear Mr. Valdez:

Attached is my monthly criminal fraud certification for March 2013.  It appears that I am continuing to commit a major financial fraud, a felony, against the Government of the United States.  There is circumstantial evidence that I have used The George Washington University to help me defraud the government of the United States of hundreds of thousands of dollars in Social Security Disability and Medicare benefits as well as the Government of the District of Columbia of DC Medicaid Benefits.

I was employed as a paralegal at the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld from 1988 to October 29, 1991, on which date my employment was terminated.  To avoid the legal consequences of an unlawful termination, several Akin Gump management partners (including Earl L. Segal, Esq., currently of Goodwill Industries, Washington, DC) conspired to defame me, enabling me to defraud the U.S. Social Security Administration of hundreds of thousands of dollars in disability benefits on the grounds that I suffered from disabling mental illness that might be associated with a risk of violence.

U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder is fully familiar with my case and may have useful information about me to share with federal authorities.

Perhaps the job harassment I experienced was a form of re-victimization, in which I re-experienced the abuse of the family environment.


Many survivors as adults find themselves in abusive, dangerous situations or relationships.

Woman who were sexually assaulted before the age of 18 [are] twice as likely to report being raped as adults.

A creative transformation of the issue of re-victimization?
