Check out this WaPo article about a Lockheed Martin engineer who blew the whistle on a Coast Guard project by making a video and uploading it to YouTube (here it is). That’s pretty creative, and it ought to send chills down the spines of would-be Enron’ers.
Whistleblowing is still hard work, but apparently YouTube just helped lessen the burden. I’m trying to imagine exactly how it would look if someone took this route in a corporate case. Instant lawsuit, for starters–irrespective of whether the allegations are true.
This guy’s scenario was a little different. According to WaPo, he was apparently slated for a layoff anyway, and it looks like he made the most of it.
