Chris Larsen was fired last month from his limited term position in the mail room at the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services after Larsen used his State email account to direct others on how to obtain a free voter ID and avoid the $28 charge for State identification. Nearly two dozen Democratic lawmakers criticized the firing and urged Larsen's reinstatement.Potentially setting up a classic employment law battle: Was he fired for sending the email per se or was he fired for the content of the email?
Previously Larsen was reprimanded for obscuring emails by using a non-traditional background, for delivering mail to wrong places, for leaving work early, and for sleeping on the job. His file also shows a supervisor observed Larsen doing school work while on the job and warned him he'd be terminated if it happened again.
I don't like his chances but maybe it's worth a shot.
