Tom Devine, '80, Legal Director of the Government Accountability Project, a whistleblower protection nonprofit, was quoted in the recent front page Washington Post article, "For Whistleblowers, A Bold Move Can Be Followed by One to Department Basement" By David A. Fahrenthold August 3, 2014.

Here's the section with Tom's quotes:
‘A long, rich tradition’

"But activists who help whistleblowers say they’ve seen it happen again and again.

“There’s a long, rich tradition of exiling whistleblowers to dusty, dark closets, or hallways, or public spaces,” said
 Tom Devine, of the watchdog group Government Accountability Project.

He said that, in many cases, the new, bad office is close enough to the old, good office that the person’s colleagues see what’s become of them. “The bureaucratic equivalent of putting a whistleblower in the stocks,” Devine said."
