Americorps IG, Gerald Walpin, accuses the President of firing him for "insufficient, baselss and absolutely wild" reasons.

Walpin was investigating alleged misuse of Americorps funds by a big time Obama supporter... former NFL star and now Sacrament Mayor Kevin Johnson. Walpin contends he was canned for political reasons.

POTUS and White House say Walpin appeared "confused" and "disoriented" at a recent meeting and fired him because of that.

Walpin says if that's true, then they let him go for appearing "disabled" at one out of hundreds of meetings.

It's drama that doesn't seem to go away easily for the White House with Walpin talking to several media outlets.
