Mmmm... may not be the best example
It's a terrible example.
Mack did keep his job... but there was a long and painful process to get there, many sleepless nights and (possibly) doses of anti-depressants. And I am sure he was never again invited to the Dean's Cocktail Hour. Something which you wilfully avoid by saying 'he kept his job' . That's probably just about all he kept. Respect, dignity, the society of his colleagues at the uni? Probably not. Look up 'Sent to Coventry' - if you have time that is and you will see what happens when researchers go 'off piste', tenured professorship or not.
