Dear Readers,

As everyone reading OpEdNews knows, the Office of Special Counsel is America's front line in the fight against fraud. This office is supposed to protect whistleblowers, but often does the opposite.

Attorney Dave Nolan has sent this letter to President Obama. Please support Nolan's drive to reform OSC, and return it to the service of the American People,

President Obama

The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,

N.W. Washington, D.C. 20500

Re: Office of Special Counsel

Dear Mr. President:

Federal Ethics Center 2310 S. Fort Scott Drive

Arlington, VA 22202

As a former White House ethics counsel, I compliment you on your nomination of Susan Grundman to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). She is the first nominee during MSPB confirmation proceedings to pledge to enforce the plain meaning of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 so as to conduct studies regarding Office of Special Counsel compliance.

I seek to the be the first nominee as Special Counsel to pledge in confirmation proceedings to report to federal agency heads the results of OSC investigations as to whether specific allegations of prohibited personnel practice are or are not substantiated. Like that of your nominee Susan Grundman, my promise is also justified under the plain meaning of the CSRA of 1978 and 5 U.S.C.1214 (e) in particular.
