Obama administration is persecuting government whistleblowers

•, J. D. Heyes
 When he was an attorney and U.S. senator, Barack Obama established a record of pushing for stronger protections for whistleblowers – generally defined as someone who tells the public or someone in authority about alleged improper or illegal activity being committed by a government agency or by government personnel.

In 2008, then-presidential candidate Obama “said he would strengthen whistleblower laws for federal workers,” the Tampa Bay Times’ Pulitzer Prize-winning site,, has noted.

“Specifically,” continued Politifact’s J.B. Wogan, Obama pledged to “speed up the review process of whistleblower claims and grant whistleblowers full access to court and due process.”

It was a pledge that, Wogan said in July, Obama generally appears to have fulfilled.
