When Commissioner Astrue fired Martin Gerry from his high level position at Social Security, Gerry was escorted from the building by a security guard. Also, his computer was seized and his office lock changed. I don't know what happened to Ephraim Feig's computer or office lock but he tells me that there was no security guard involved in his departure. The firing came while he was out of the office. When he returned days later he was allowed back into the building and spent about an hour talking with human resources before leaving.
