Posted  January 7, 2019

Whistleblower Insider wants to hear from you on who should be honored as our 2018 Whistleblower of the Year. We are especially interested in those individuals who best encapsulate the qualities of the typical whistleblower — courage, strength, integrity, selflessness and a deep concern for public health and safety. You can choose among the candidates listed below, or identify your own candidate. And please add in the comments section below why your candidate is deserving of the honor. Voting will continue through the end of January with results of your top selections to be announced shortly thereafter. Thanks for voting!

    Your selection of Dr.Ford was laughable. Obviously this was not serious. Dr.Ford has some serious psychological issues to deal with and she was AGAIN used by unscrupulous people in one political party. She chose to be exploited again. As a woman this was horrifying to watch on national television. Shame on America to justify this kind of exploitation of women and call it COURAGE.
