  135. DOL/PR, March 6, 1984. Auchter accepted the position of president of the B.B. Andersen Companies, a construction and development group located in Kansas. Controversy developed when it turned out that in 1981 he had dropped a proposed $12,680 penalty against one of the Andersen companies for safety violations. Critics accused him of accepting the job as a "quid pro quo." Auchter maintained that he was following a national policy of dismissing fines assessed by over-zealous inspectors and denied that there was any connection between dropping the penalty and accepting employment with Andersen almost three years later.
