A former Trump administration official and business law professor is suing New Mexico State University for wrongful termination and discrimination, which he alleges is due to his conservative values and participation in Republican politics.

Dr. Gavin Clarkson, who served as deputy assistant secretary in the Interior Department’s Bureau of Indian Affairs, was abruptly terminated from his position at New Mexico State University while on a leave of absence.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to ProPublica, Clarkson resigned from the Bureau of Indian Affairs following an inspector general report into the loan program he directed. While still on leave, Clarkson announced his candidacy for Congress. New Mexico State University’s provost and general counsel initiated a process of canceling Clarkson’s leave four days later.

The Christian, conservative, and pro-life college professor alleges “wrongful termination, breach of contract, denial of due process, defamation, creation of a hostile work environment, and racial and religious discrimination.”

According to the report, Clarkson claims that his 2017 leave of absence agreement was valid through January 2020, and how he spends his time during the leave is not subject to scrutiny. Clarkson says the university’s actions are “clearly meant to stop me from continuing my congressional campaign.”
