I can relate to the part with the CO:
the CO held a mini-crusade and got me axed.My CO tried hard, but the body backed me up. Then he sent in his report so full of BS the body would not sign it and two other elders walked out of the elders meeting because of his attempt to intimidate them.
The CO attempt failed but his slanderous report went in with the signature of 3 cowards. I was already looking for an excuse to quiet so I resigned in conscientious objection to the corruption in the hierarchy. I stated it that way in my letter of resignation to the society and didn't even get a response from them.
So its over and I'm free. Hope you soon realize the same.
