and I did years of work while in prison to address my addiction, to own up to my crimes, and to help ensure I'll never relapse or reoffend. I'm a hard worker and good with people, as long as they're not rude or insulting.

For you, as a coworker to continually treat me with petty hostility and a dismissive superiority because I am an "untrustworthy felon" speaks to your supposed "liberal" views and to who you are as a person.

I hope you never fail or fall as far as I had. It takes humility and many courageous, compassionate friends to help someone climb out of that deep a hole — and I doubt, sadly, that you have either.
