NGO Watch: Beltway accountability groups ignore news that cabinet department has been violating a major whistleblower law for almost a decade
Almost a week ago, MSPB Watch and fellow advocate site Whistlewatch.org broke the news that the Department of Health and Human Services has failed to submit annual reports to Congress about whistleblower retaliation and discrimination data, each and every year since passage of the No FEAR Act of 2002.

Nor does it seem that they discovered this violation at all in the past decade. Why?
