President Obama has promised that the federal government would take steps to make a real difference for those still suffering from the devastating contamination at Camp Lejeune.

But President Obama’s Department of Justice is undermining his promise.

This could have serious implications on how government employees can communicate with Congress.

Here's what DOJ doesn't want you to know about its bad apples.
 
An internal affairs office at the Justice Department has found that, over the last decade, hundreds of federal prosecutors and other Justice employees violated rules, laws, or ethical standards governing their work.

This is supposed to shock us that a guberment department is hiding something?

Our report on the SEC Revolving Door was named a finalist in the Society of American Business Writers and Editors annual journalism competition! 

Here's what the judges had to say:
All-around solid series that shows the conflicts within an agency that is supposed to watch out for investors. Instead, it appears to watch out more for the industry it is intended to regulate. POGO explained how the conflict of interest manifests itself in the oversight of the financial industry.

We are grateful for the recognition and would like to offer congratulations to the other finalists and winners, listed here: http://bit.ly/1kdreiD

Introducing www.VAOversight.org, where VA whistleblowers can work confidentially with POGO investigators. We're not just looking for more problems, we're hoping to explore solutions. Veterans deserve answers and accountability!

http://www.takepart.com/the-unknown-known Many thanks to the Sunlight Foundation and Participant Media for their work presenting last night's screening of The Unknown Known. Love him or hate him, Rumsfeld's memos are a treasure trove and show the importance of transparency and the Freedom of the Information Act to the historical record. If you haven't done so, please sign and share the petition asking the Senate Armed Services Committee to make it's mark-up of the Pentagon budget open to the public.

"The violations include instances in which attorneys who have a duty to uphold justice have, according to the internal affairs office, misled courts, withheld evidence that could have helped defendants, abused prosecutorial and investigative power, and violated constitutional rights."

Do judges have an internal affairs group as they are just as bad if not worse.

Two weeks ago, there was a break-in at our DC office. TVs, computers and multimedia gear were all left untouched, though there was an attempt to open a locked file cabinet containing mundane financial information. The police believe the break-in was related to our work.
