The Senate is preparing to vote on the stimulus package, and we must seize this historic opportunity to obtain whistleblower protection for all federal employees. We’re in the final stages of the fight and taxpayers who demand oversight and accountability are making their voices heard, but we need your help. Now Halliburton whistleblower, Bunny Greenhouse is calling on all Americans to contact Congress and tell your Senators and Representatives to keep whistleblower protection in the final version of the stimulus package.
Bunny’s urgent letter capped off a week of increasing public support for whistleblower protection. Yesterday, the Washington Post published a letter to the editor emphasizing that whistleblower protections are essential for oversight and accountability. Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Patriot News endorsed the whistleblower protection amendment of the stimulus package as a necessity to allow civil servants to report fraud.
