The linked article discusses something all too common these days. It is dangerous to be a whistleblower and even more dangerous to bring attention to public figures. Edwin Snowden, a whistleblower of the greatest level, is hiding out somewhere in the world and will always have a nagging feeling that a sniper has his head in his sights and is just waiting for orders to pull the trigger.
Here, at DoesTomUdallRepresentYou.com, we get E-mails from readers. Some of the E-mails have been complimentary to us, some have stood up for Tom Udall, and others have been informational about upcoming events we might want to cover. Recently, we had an E-mail from a whistleblower.
The sender of the E-mail described a situation that occurred with the Albuquerque V.A. in 2008 and 2009. The sender was associated with the V.A. and learned that when the V.A. destroyed Vet’s records it was against the law to do so. The V.A. and Tom Udall were contacted by the person and, as a whistleblower, he thought he was doing the right thing in protecting vet’s records. For all the trouble, this person was fired from the V.A. Tom Udall knew the records had been destroyed and refused to challenge the Obama Administration about it. All of this had implications for the eventual V.A. scandal that cropped up across the country. When Tom Udall assured people he had things under control, this whistleblower could barely contain the anger.
We need whistleblowers in the government to help stop fraud and waste and we have seen plenty about fraud and waste, enough to last a lifetime.
The V.A. isn’t much of a topic in this election and no one has said much about what Tom Udall knew and didn’t know at the V.A. for years before the scandal.
If what this whistleblower claims is true, vets might want to reconsider voting for Tom Udall.
Nobody believes politicians and never have. Why they keep believing Tom Udall is a million dollar question?
