    I remembered the movie about a Whistleblowers and the tobacco industry…wonder if this applies here?
    It was all about retaliation (AND THIS IS NOT AGAINST THE PERSON, IT IS ABOUT OUR GOVT..and Retaliation

    All of the laws we enforce make it illegal to fire, demote, harass, or otherwise “retaliate” against people (applicants or employees) because they filed a charge of discrimination, because they complained to their employer or other covered entity about discrimination on the job, or because they participated in an employment discrimination proceeding (such as an investigation or lawsuit).

    For example, it is illegal for an employer to refuse to promote an employee because she filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC, even if EEOC later determined no discrimination occurred.
    Retaliation & Work Situations

    The law forbids retaliation when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

    When the Federal Gov. is HARMING U.S. Citizens…it should be reported to the media and anyone else who will listen.

    They are destroying a Nation and yet they don’t want anyone to say so nor how?
    NO! They are doing the best thing for the country by shouting it from the rooftops!
