Secret Hold Update - 24 Senators Deny Action; Help Us Rule Out More!

Dylan Blaylock, January 12, 2011

Dear GAP Supporters: 

As you know, last weekend GAP and On The Media launched a campaign to identify the senator who sabotaged the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (WPEA) with an anonymous "secret hold" on the final day of the last session of Congress. This legislation would stem government corruption, fraud, and wrongdoing. 

We're making tremendous progress. We can now rule out 24 senators because of our and On The Media's supporters taking a few minutes to stand up for government accountability. 

If you've already contacted your senator, we wholeheartedly thank you. If you haven’t had the time yet to do so, please take three minutes to call your senators!

The campaign is growing steadily and has been featured by: On The MediaProPublica,Newsworks.orgFairwarning.orgPBS Frontline, and Slate Magazine.

Whichever way senators may answer, you can report your correspondence to On The Media at and their site will post the information. With your help, we can blow the whistle on the senator that refused protections to government whistleblowers.
