NWC Calls for Immediate Appointment of New Special Counsel
Since its inception in 1978, the Office of Special Counsel has failed to live up to its mission of protecting whistleblowers and has been dominated by political appointees. Although the track record of the OSC has been highly criticized over the past 30 years, having the former head of whistleblower enforcement charged with serious criminal misconduct highlights how OSC has been abused by politicians intent on having the foxes guard the chicken coop.
President Obama promised during the campaign to appoint a Special Counsel with 'expertise in whistleblower law and a firm commitment to protecting whistleblowers.' It has been over 2 years since President Obama made this promise, and no nomination has even been sent to the Senate for confirmation.
