Massive Spending Program Mandates Whistleblower Protection

By February 11, 2009

Follow me on:

In 2005, I shared with you the story of Bunny Greenhouse, a US Army Corps of Engineers whistleblower who asked questions about blank-check Iraq war funding and found herself out of a job.

Today, Greenhouse is asking citizens to "demand, in the strongest possible terms, that employees who disclose fraud in federal contracting are fully and properly protected in the 800 billion dollar stimulus package that Congress is currently debating."

Read her call to action. Then pick up the phone and contact your U.S. Representative and Senators directly. It's OK to send along her bulk mail form, but direct contact carries more weight with elected folks.

Here is a new letter from Bunny Greenhouse urging all Americans to continue the fight for greater oversight and accountability. Despite the stimulus setback, whistleblower protections advocates have the momentum to achieve change. You can read Bunny’s letter and help her protect taxpayer dollars by visiting

Hopefully, this will be enforced, mandatory and not just another way of protecting, covering up to retaliate those who do fear the “No Fear Act” which, no, you should fear should you act by exposing, asking and wanting to make a difference instead of defamation of character, conspiracy and bullying those who have ethics, morals, trust and innocent to believe in our government, laws and legislation to become jobless, homeless, desparate treatment, humiliated and bullied by those supervisors who put their face on the body of an SS Hitler Nazi soldier to be hung in another supervisor’s cubicle for all to see, laughing, but gets away with murder through his “concentration” camp ways. If only lower grade employees were able to actually get results, action and something done instead of management sticking with management, EEO, Union and SES “leaders” doing what they want, to who they want, when they want, however they want and nothing justified, accountable or victim being able to defend themselves as stated in laws, legislation, EEOC, No Fear Act, Bullying Act, Violence in the workplace, not tolerated but taken or else.

I am a victim of being retaliated, bullied, harrassed, discriminated against, desparate treatment and told to “swallow the problem” or management will remove you from 30 years of federal service for being at work, wanting to work, put on AWOL when at work and told differently with witnesses, accoutability and not one chance to defend myself.
