Dear Op Ed Readers, and Friends of Good Government: Please Send Your Vote To President Obama Today: Vote online for Whistleblower Protection!

The Obama administration has launched their Open Government Dialogue, and is accepting "ideas" from the general public to weigh in on this initiative, similar to the Obama transition team's Change.gov Idea forum.

This project was recently announced, and unfortunately ends tomorrow!

In light of the limited notice, the Whistleblower Protection Act sign-on letter was posted as an "idea" to demonstrate the breadth of support for this well established transparency measure. Please take a couple of minutes to vote for this idea, and please consider sharing it with your other networks as well.

How to vote:

1)Go to <click here with your email and create a password.
3)Verify your email address from the email they send you.
4) On the upper right-hand side, under Search Ideas, type in "Federal Whistleblower Protection," or "755" (this is the number of the idea). Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Federal Whistleblower Protection"
5)On the upper left hand side of the "idea", click on the “This looks promising” vote option to cast your vote!



Join 292 Organizations and Corporations Supporting Swift Action to 
Restore Strong, Comprehensive Whistleblower Rights 
 
May 15, 2009 
 
An Open Letter to President Obama and Members of Congress 
 
The undersigned organizations and corporations write to support the completion of  the landmark, nine-year legislative effort to restore credible whistleblower rights for  government employees. We offer our support to expeditiously pass legislation that includes  the critical reforms listed below.  Whistleblower protection is a foundation for any change in  which the public can believe. It does not matter whether the issue is economic recovery,  prescription drug safety, environmental protection, infrastructure spending, national health  insurance, or foreign policy. We need conscientious public servants willing and able to call  attention to waste, fraud and abuse on behalf of the taxpayers.  
 
Unfortunately, every month that passes has very tangible consequences for federal  government whistleblowers, because none have viable rights. Last year, on average, 16  whistleblowers a month lost initial decisions from administrative hearings at the Merit  Systems Protection Board (MSPB). Since 2000, only three out of 53 whistleblowers have  received final rulings in their favor from the MSPB. The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals,  the only court which can hear federal whistleblower appeals of administrative decisions, has  consistently ruled against whistleblowers, with whistleblowers winning only three cases out  of 209 since October 1994 when Congress last strengthened the law.     It is crucial that Congress restore and modernize the Whistleblower Protection Act by passing all of the following reforms:  
 
o Grant employees the right to a jury trial in federal court; 
o Extend meaningful protections to FBI and intelligence agency whistleblowers; 
o Strengthen protections for federal contractors, as strong as those provided to DoD 
contractors and grantees in last year's defense authorization legislation; 
o Extend meaningful protections to Transportation Security Officers (screeners); 
o Neutralize the government's use of the “state secrets” privilege; 
o Bar the MSPB from ruling for an agency before whistleblowers have the opportunity 
to present evidence of retaliation; 
o Provide whistleblowers the right to be made whole, including compensatory 
damages; 
o Grant comparable due process rights to employees who blow the whistle in the course of a government investigation or who refuse to violate the law; and 
o Remove the Federal Circuit's monopoly on precedent-setting cases. 
 
We know you share the commitment of every group signing the letter below to more transparency and accountability in government.  Please let us know how we can participate to make this good government reform law to protect federal whistleblowers and taxpayers.
