FBI whistleblower Jane Turner appeared on Fox Business last night to speak about her experience as a whistleblower. After twenty years as a FBI Special Agent, Jane Turner led efforts to force the FBI to provide protection for child sex crime victims on the North Dakota Indian Reservations. In retaliation for exposing FBI failures within its child crime program, Turner was removed from her position. Her whistleblower case is still pending. Turner also learned that FBI agents had stolen “souvenirs” from the 9/11 terrorist attack crime scene. She was fired after reporting the thefts to the Inspector General A federal jury vindicated her in a historic 2007 verdict in her Title VII discrimination case.
Ms. Turner explained that you have to be blowing the whistle for the right reasons because it places tremendous stress on you and your family. She recommended finding an attorney who specializes in whistleblower law. If you are considering blowing the whistle on corruption and would like to consult an attorney the National Whistleblower Center Legal Defense and Education Fund may be able to help you.
