Last week Bunny Greenhouse testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in support of the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act - H.R. 1507. Although Bunny was removed from her Senior Executive Service position following her initial Congressional testimony about Halliburton no-bid contracts, she courageously returned to Capitol Hill because she believes that "all employees should be protected from retaliation for reporting waste, fraud and abuse." Incredibly the Army Corps has once again retaliated against Bunny for exposing the truth. Within hours of delivering her testimony, Bunny received an email from the Army Corps' Chief of Staff stating that all future testimony before Congress must be submitted for pre-approval by the Army Corps. In response to this unconstituional directive, Bunny has issued a new letter to the American people. In the letter Bunny asks all Americans to take action to protect federal employees by demanding immediate passage of H.R. 1507.
"When the United States orders its employees to submit to censorship when they are exercising their constitutional right to 'petition Congress for redress of grievances,' it is time to fight back!"
