Rep. Darrell Issa -- Who Says Investigating Wikileaks Is A Priority -- Sets Up His Own Whistleblower Site
from the say-what-now? dept
And yet... days later, Issa has announced his very own "whistleblower" site, in which he's asking government officials and the public to blow the whistle on government fraud and abuse.
This is, apparently, not a joke.
So he's attacking Wikileaks -- which does the same thing, asking people to highlight fraud and abuse worldwide -- and then sets up his own website to do the same thing. Maybe he just didn't want the competition? Of course, some will point out that there are serious differences. Wikileaks releases certain things it receives publicly. It's not at all clear what Issa will do with whatever he receives. Of course, that seems to make Wikileaks seem like a lot more effective solution if you're really trying to expose government fraud and abuse.
