Whistleblowers Win Protections

Politicians in elected positions of authority aggressively retaliate against public employees who report acts of fraud, waste and abuse that impact their electability. 
 
This is illustrated by a case of two employees in Georgia, who headed the Office of Professional Standards They were fired because they would not sit on their findings simply because elections were underway. Their case illustrates the critical need for public employers to have the means to fully investigate whistleblower complaints and let the outcome be guided by the evidence. When elected officials truly commit to running a transparent government free of fraud, waste and abuse, whistleblowers become effective agents of change that should be thanked rather than fired.
While suing a government is challenging, due to historical rules of sovereign immunity, this veil of protection is coming down with good representation.
