Americorp Scandal Update

Byron York has the latest on this scandal.

Just hours after Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa released a report Friday on their investigation into the abrupt firing of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin, the Obama White House gave the lawmakers a trove of new, previously-withheld documents on the affair.

It was a twist on the now-familiar White House late-Friday release of bad news; this time, the new evidence was put out not only at the start of a weekend but also hours too late for inclusion in the report.The new documents support the Republican investigators' conclusion that the White House's explanation for Walpin's dismissal -- that it came after the board of the Corporation for National and Community Service, which oversees AmeriCorps, unanimously decided that Walpin must go -- was in fact a public story cobbled together after Walpin was fired, not before.

This is in fact the sort of thuggish behavior that is directed at almost every whistle blower. Hopefully, this case not only shines the spotlight on the Obama administration's heavy handed and often thuggish behavior but the thuggish behavior directed almost all whistle blowers.
