GovExec Daily: A Request for Stronger Whistleblower Protections
This podcast features our National Security Analyst Irvin McCullough and was originally published here.
Last week, more than 200 groups called on President Biden and congressional leadership to enact stronger whistleblower protection laws, especially to ensure that the government is fairly spending trillions of dollars in pandemic relief funding. The groups, led by the Government Accountability Project, argue that the current whistleblower protections are outdated and insufficient to protect individuals who disclose wrongdoing in the federal government.
Irvin McCullough is a National Security Analyst at the Government Accountability Project. He joined the show to discuss the letter and the state of whistleblower rights.
