In this story on the Southeast Texas Political Review, Philip R. Klein makes this claim:

The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that purchasing agent Douglas Anderson III, has resigned. His resignation comes as an EEOC lawsuit looms according to sources at the Jefferson County Courthouse.

According to my sources at the Jefferson County Courthouse:

Jefferson County purchasing agent Douglas Anderson III resigned this week to take a job with Veterans Affairs in Austin.

Given that Anderson is a 20-year veteran who retired as an executive officer and senior department head of the U.S. Navy's Supply Support division, it only makes sense to me that he's leaving for a job with Veteran Affairs in Austin. This makes even more sense when one considers his new salary vs. his 64K salary here in Jefferson County. 

I'll watch for that big EEOC lawsuit, about which Philip claimed earlier this week:

Sources close to the Jefferson County Commissioners confirm to the Review that Jefferson County Purchasing Agent Douglas Anderson III is under investigation by the EEOC for an "Age Discrimination" complaint and a secondary complaint of Anderson being uncomfortable around "Midgets."

If he's under investigation by the EEOC, one would think that might disqualify him from a job with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Maybe the EEOC suit is part of those 27,000 cases that Philip claimed were being "refilled" in Hardin County. I'll revisit this in the future.
