George Elmaraghy was touted as a hero by some for opposing coal-mining permits before he was forced to retire as the chief water-quality officer at the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
On Thursday, an investigative report said that although he was pressured to leave his job, the administration of Gov.
Elmaraghy said he wasn't surprised.
"I was really expecting something like that, because I know the inspector general (who is appointed by the governor) wants to keep his job," Elmaraghy said.
In an email sent to his staff in August 2013, Elmaraghy said he was forced to quit for opposing coal industry permits "that may have a negative impact on Ohio's streams and wetlands and violate state and federal laws.
"Like the man you often tell the story of in your speeches who worked in Wilmington and suddenly lost his job, I am trying to understand why after 39 years of acclaimed service, my life and that of so many others was brutally turned upside down," Elmaraghy said in an Aug. 19, 2014, letter. "What happened to me should not happen to any dedicated employee - in Columbus or in Wilmington."
A year ago, Elmaraghy got $40,000 and his attorney $20,000 in a settlement with the state in which no one admitted wrongdoing. He now has an engineering job in the private sector and also serves on a board appointed by President Barack Obama to monitor Ohio River quality.
Investigators said Elmaraghy never made good on an opportunity to provide emails to back up his claim that his removal stemmed from political pressure.
The probe found that the EPA properly changed Elmaraghy's job status from classified to non-classified - meaning he no longer had civil service protection - the day before his forced retirement.
Scott Nally, EPA director when Elmaraghy left the agency, said the decision to make a staffing change was his, and "he did not feel any outside pressure," investigators were told.

A veteran Ohio environmental regulator fighting what he says was a forced resignation by the administration of Republican Gov.
George Elmaraghy told The Associated Press he was escorted from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's headquarters half a day early Friday because the agency's director didn't want to leave him unsupervised. He said Director Scott Nally personally walked him out at noon.
A message was left with the agency seeking comment.
Elmaraghy authored a widely distributed August email alleging pressure from the coal industry was at play in a request for his resignation. He served 39 years at the Ohio EPA, most recently as head of its Division of Surface Water.
He told the AP he is weighing his legal options.
