Whistleblower Advocates Ask Candidates to State Position on Whistleblower Issues

asking for their position on whistleblower protection. The National
Whistleblowers Center has already received a number of responses from
candidates across the political spectrum, including Republican,
Democrat, Independent, Reform Party, Green Party, Constitution Party,
and Libertarian candidates.
Advocacy and Development of the National Whistleblowers Center said, "We
are pleased with the initial response to this grassroots effort to find
out where candidates stand on the issue of
protecting whistleblowers and enhancing oversight and accountability. We
urge all voters to send the survey to their candidates and demand that
they publicly state their position on whistleblower
