The Senator from Missouri advocates that we: "Please know that if you have specific reason to believe that there is misconduct, waste, fraud, or abuse concerning DOJ employees, contractors, or grantees, you may file a complaint with the DOJ's Office of the Inspector General." Are we following up, America or letting the Fed and states fail us?

Dear Mr. Stoda,

Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about the Justice Department. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

As you may know, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is the federal executive department responsible for the enforcement of federal law and administration of justice. The various divisions within DOJ enforce U.S. antitrust, tax, civil rights, environmental, and criminal laws, among others.

Americans' faith in our justice system is vital to maintaining the rule of law in the United States. No person, regardless of where they work, is above the law. I certainly understand your concerns about possible misconduct at the DOJ. Please know that if you have specific reason to believe that there is misconduct, waste, fraud, or abuse concerning DOJ employees, contractors, or grantees, you may file a complaint with the DOJ's Office of the Inspector General. For information on how to file a complaint, please visit http://www.justice.gov/oig/FOIA/hotline.htm.

As Missouri's former State Auditor, I know Missourians expect their government to work truthfully, effectively and efficiently. Since coming to the Senate in 2007, I have taken steps to eliminate wasteful spending by federal agencies and enhance whistleblower protections for federal employees and contractors who may uncover wrongdoing. For example, in 2011, I introduced the Non-Federal Employee Whistleblower Protection Act (S. 241), which would prohibit retaliation against employees of federal contractors who speak out about wasteful spending or other abuses of federal resources.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other issue.

Sincerely,

Claire McCaskill
United States Senator

P.S. If you would like more information about resources that can help Missourians, or what I am doing in the Senate on your behalf, please sign up for my email newsletter at http://mccaskill.senate.gov.
