CSB Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso asked to resign

According to investigator into the Chemical Safety Board (CSB), Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso has doing a terrible job for the past 4 years. He has one year left as chairman but House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has asked for his resignation.

It is alleged that Rafael Moure-Eraso used intimidation, bullying, stonewalling investigations and retaliating against whistle-blowers all of which add up to a toxic work environment that forced several employees to quit. Employees of the CSB are afraid to speak out or take any action that might be perceived by Rafael Moure-Eraso as challenging his leadership or ability to run the CSB effectively.

Rafael Moure-Eraso refused, on several occasions, to produce documents that might prove these allegations citing client-attorney privilege. Darrell Issa has given Rafael Moure-Eraso one week to comply or threatened to subpoena the document and hold him in contempt which would lead to criminal prosecution.
