FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Government Accountability Project Clients Spotlighted in New Publication by Award-Winning Journalist
Acclaimed Journalist Publishes Book Showcasing Major Whistleblower Stories
WASHINGTON – This week, acclaimed author and investigative journalist Daniel Moldea published Money, Politics, and Corruption in U.S. Higher Education: The Stories of Whistleblowers. Moldea focuses on the rampant corruption in higher education and uses case studies to track whistleblowers’ journeys from disclosure to success. The book features three whistleblowers Dr. Jon Oberg, Rod Lipscomb, and Dr. Jim Keen, as well as well-known whistleblower advocate and attorney David Halperin. In addition to profiling several of our clients, Moldea reached out to Government Accountability Project CEO and Executive Director Louis Clark to write the foreword for the book. From Moldea’s meticulously researched book, a powerful narrative about the power of truth-telling to make a difference emerges. All royalties from all 2020-2021 sales of the book and its e–book version will be contributed to the Fund for Constitutional Government, a group which provides funding to a variety of good government civil society organizations.
Government Accountability Project CEO and Executive Director Louis Clark praised the publication,
“Dan Moldea’s book couldn’t be published at a more critical moment. At a time when the Trump administration is actively repressing dissenting speech from federal officials and retaliating against whistleblowers, it is important to look to other truth-tellers to understand how we can move forward. The truth-tellers showcased in Moldea’s book – Oberg, Keen, Lipscomb, and Halperin – show us that whistleblowing requires bravery, courage, and tenacity. Their whistleblowing experiences hold lessons for those of us continuing our struggle to keep the government accountable, even during an unprecedented time.”
