Congressman’s b
idding for big corporations weakens
 shareholders, whistleblowers, and law enforcement’s ability to combat fraud 
 
Staten Island, NY
 – 
The Staten Island Democratic Party slammed Congressman Michael
Grimm’s (NY
-13) for introducing legislation that would devastate whistleblower policiesenacted to protect whistleblowers and shareholders from corporate fraud.The legislation, H.R. 2483, would
destroy an employee’s anonymity in reporting a company’s
fraudulent behavior, weaken law enforcement
’s ability to prote
ct shareholders, and discourageemployees from reporting criminal activity. In fact, employees who report fraud would not evenbe protected from retaliation by their employers. The National Whistleblower Center called
Congressman Grimm’s legislation “an act of war on whistleblowers.”
 
Congressman Grimm has once again done the bidding for big corporations on the backs of American employees and consumers
,” said Kevin Elkins, the
Staten Island
Democratic Party’s
Deputy Executive Director.
Grimm's actions on behalf of Wall Street border quid pro quo.Instead of working to combat fraud in the financial sector that got us into this mess, he wants topromote a culture of fraud, silence, and fear among employees who witness serious fraudviolations
. This puts all Americans at risk.”
