An overly ambitious person will eventually hang themselves. The one I suspected of setting me up to get my teaching job could not settle for only that. Some where their was a rumor that she was not loving and was too selfish and she had flirted with the wrong person. She soon announced that she was getting married. So sudden and unknown to anyone. She would drive through town with her new husband to show others she was a family person.
She then decided to get rid of one of the untenured professors, accusing him of something unknown to me. That was a grave mistake. He had more power then she realized. Her character now was in question. Add to that my letter from the counseling and speech department that I was quite normal. Her advisor no longer protected her. In graduate school your advisor is your protectorate and mentor. When he or she withdraws you are vulnerable. My advisor had not done much for me but had not turned on me. I was told earlier to leave but not forced to leave. She was terminated.
What made it worse was she left town without telling her alleged husband. He may not of even known that they were suppose to have been married. With her gone what followed was a surprise to me.
