Top Advocacy Organizations Partner to Represent Whistleblowers and Protect the Election

Government Accountability Project Executive Director and CEO Louis Clark commented:

“During this current election season and the expected aftermath, our democracy is imperiled from a multitude of threats both foreign and domestic at the national, state and local levels of government. Whistleblowers are proving to be a valuable, effective and necessary antidote to secret corruption on behalf of all of us citizens who seek assurance that our vote will count, our leaders will not improperly or illegally subvert the agencies of government for political advantage, and there will be an orderly and just transition of power should that be the voting will of the people. In exchange for their courageous public service, whistleblowers deserve protection and the unqualified guarantee that we as a society will address their verified concerns.”

American Constitution Society President Russ Feingold commented:

“ACS is proud to partner with Government Accountability Project on this important initiative and activate our nationwide network of lawyers, law students, and academics to provide potential whistleblowers with legal advice and pro bono representation and ensure the integrity of the upcoming election.”

American Oversight Executive Director Austin Evers commented:

“The last four years have shown that wrongdoing often first comes to light when courageous public servants blow the whistle. With the president actively threatening to undermine the basic tenets of our democracy, it is more important than ever that whistleblowers are heard and protected.”

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Noah Bookbinder commented:

“Whistleblowers are critical to meaningful accountability, and therefore to a strong democracy. The Trump administration has taken the politicization of normally nonpartisan government functions to new levels, and we have every reason to believe this pattern is repeating itself in places we don’t yet know about; whistleblowers are more important now than ever to help expose this dangerous politicization. Civil servants stepping up to protect our democracy should know that they can do so safely, and CREW is proud to partner with Government Accountability Project to ensure that they can.”
