No whistleblower protections for feds in stimulus


Congress stripped whistleblower protections for federal employees from the compromise stimulus bill today, according to the Project on Government Oversight.

“Accountability got mugged today when congressional leaders stripped federal whistleblower protections from their compromise ‘stimulus’ bill,” POGO said in a press release reacting to the bill today. “POGO will keep fighting to get federal whistleblowers the protections they need when they disclose the inevitable waste and fraud they will be witnessing.”

Last month an amendment to the House version of the bill proposed to expand whistleblower protections to all federal employees, including those involved in national security.
