College of DuPage – Breuder’s Human Rights Complaint Dismissed – Part II

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On July 16, 2016

DuPage Co. (ECWd) –

It is amazing to see how fast a person goes from insinuations he would have to start out as a 5-Star General if he went into the military, to a sniveling has been, claiming his human rights have been violated after he is exposed and terminated.    We first covered his Human Rights complaint in this story, which was dismissed.  He still has time to appeal but there is more to the story that needs to be shared.

Reading the most recent information provided by the Illinois Department of Human Rights it became clear that games were being played with the wording of his discrimination claims, and we pointed out several of those in the previous article.  One that is truly laughable is the following from exhibit 1, page 35.

Allegation: On or about April 16, 2015, I advised Erin Birt, then Chairman of the College of DuPage Board of Trustees, about my Intention to take leave. She did not deny my request.

Response: COD admits that Breuder requested leave and that Chairman Birt did not deny the request. Responding further, COD avers that Chairman Birt also did not approve the request.

The response from COD is exactly what we pointed out in our first article.  It was just a matter of applying common sense to Breuder’s claim.  In addition, the following exchange on the same page also confirms you can’t take leave until it is first approved, just as we stated previously.

Allegation: Several months later, on August 3, 2015, I received a letter dated July 30, 2015, from Katharine Hamilton, the current Chairman of the College of DuPage Board of Trustees, “denying” my use of Respite Leave during my medical leave.  Actually, my Respite Leave began on July 29, 2015. 

Response: COD admits that the letter was sent to Breuder by Chairman Hamilton. The remaining allegations of this Paragraph are legal conclusions that require no response. Responding further, COD avers that Respite Leave could not “begin” until it was approved, which it was not.

Breduer claims he has been retaliated against on the basis of his disabilities- anxiety and severe depression, which were diagnosed in March 2015.  He also claims those disabilities were brought on by the hostile actions of COD’s Board of Trustees.

One can only wonder how the previous COD Board of Trustees are responsible for his anxiety and depression.  How does illegally voting in closed session to basically pad Breuder’s pocket and then vote to give him a Three Quarter of a Million Dollar payout cause anxiety and severe depression?

I suspect if the truth were known, the “5-Star General” who got kicked out of his kingdom after being exposed for all the illegal spending taking place at that college is what lead to the depression.  The anxiety, we suspect, comes from not knowing when the FBI/US Attorneys/State’s Attorney/US Department of Education are going to start prosecuting those responsible for all the illegal activity that took place at the College of DuPage.

You can read the entire case file provided by the Illinois Department of Human Rights below.  It is in two parts.

    The big, brave Elephant murderer, less than a mosquito, just a pesky fly swatted away. Certainly not fit for any job, by virtue of the opinions of the many he “lead” and by virtue of his own admission of mental disabilities.

    Gosh, where else could he go in order to continue his mission of wasting tax payer money? What else does he have to do all day but sit and ponder that very idea. I wonder if barring him from campus might have prevented a workman’s comp claim. Sorry Dan. Whew-Dist. 502 lucked out on that one.

    Here’s a guy ripping off the tax payers and living it up while students struggle to pay for tuition. This guy ought to just give up and walk away. It seems he’s thinking he’s been hurt. He is a manipulator along with a few on the county board who joined in on the freebies. He never thought the public would catch on to the games and wild spending on tax payers tab.
    He and the others who enjoyed the free food, wine and no bid contacts ought to pack up and get out of town. I’d like to see a few more be exposed who were actively involved. You know who you are!
    Thank you all who exposed the corruption.
    Where is trustee Diane McGuire’s resignation ?
    She played a role and played interference including a few others who currently are on the board. Come election I’d like hear why they really believe they are worthy of such a position while knowing they have taken part in Breuders games. He wouldn’t have made private first class in my rifle platoon while serving my county in 1969.

    Jon makes a good point-where is your resignation mcguire? so, so tired of you. There needs to be a “highlight” reel of your baloney before the election. Actually that would be good anytime now.
