Whatever you think about whistleblowers, you should at least stand up and be accountable for your actions. (http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/whistleblower-secret-hold-5370157)

We need an anonymos whistleblower to step forward and identify the Senator who did this dastardly deed.

And while we're at it, we need to find out who is donating how much money to which candidates and to which PAC's.

At least we know that this one ain't Ted Stevens, who was about the all-time champ at this maneuver.

There does need to be protections in place for whistleblowers. They're an important part of keeping regulations working. So I can see why a corporate bought senator would hate it. Or at least why the people paying his salary, err campaign donations, would be against it.

I couldn't open the link either. But I bet it was interesting. And I'm in favor of it. Or against it, as the case may be.
