Tune in today at 1:00pm EDT to Honesty Without Fear on Progressive Radio Network.
In the first half, Richard Renner interviews author Kathleen Sharp about Mary Scott, a hospital finance administrator who blew the whistle on Metropolitan Health Corp bilking the federal government through billing fraud and kickbacks. After the federal government reached a $6.25 million settlement agreement with Metro Health based on her whistleblowing, the company fought back hard. They convinced a judge, without a hearing, to levy a $1.6 million sanction against Ms. Scott for her lawyers' misconduct. Metro Health is now frustrating Ms. Scott's attempts to pick up the pieces by opposing her bankruptcy case. Kathleen Sharp will explain this harrowing tale of how hard fraudsters can fight back against whistleblowers.
In the second half hour, Guest Host Rosemary Dew, a 13-year veteran FBI agent, interviews fellow FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley. They discuss the Obama Administration's use of the Espionage Act to prosecute national security whistleblowers, such as NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake.
