A watchdog group that's trying to keep tabs on mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs said Monday that it won't comply with a law enforcement subpoena seeking its correspondence with current or former VA employees.
Steve Henke, then a director of one of the largest field offices for the federal Bureau of Land Management, was applying for a job last year heading an oil and gas trade group when he sent a writing sample to his prospective employer from his government computer.
Congress is rushing to defund the controversial group ACORN, but its efforts might have unintended consequences.
Last week, Ms. Brian said the IG subpoena infringed on POGO's "freedom of speech, freedom of press, and freedom of association rights as they relate to all whistleblowers and sources."
"Our mission as a public-interest watchdog would be severely damaged if we violated the trust of our sources," Ms. Brian said in a statement. "We have faced these kinds of threats before and have never wavered. We will not violate the trust whistleblowers have placed in us by revealing their identities to anyone."
