    He should have been fired. Now he is claiming whistler blower protection LOL. The man is just looking to make a quick buck. Another scam artist.

    This was definitely politically motivated versus whistle blowing. Why didn't he shop it to a mainstream news outlet? Instead he gets it published in the very left leaning http://inthesetimes.com . Media hound. Perry hugged a professional friend. We all make close friends in our professional network. And yes, there was probably some favoritism because of it. Meh. Corporate snore.

    Reading the whole piece reveals that far from being a whistleblower he is a propagandist, as revealed in his videos for convicted former Illinois governor (how many decades has it been since an Illinois Democrat governor has not gone to prison?).

    he was leaking photographs?
    it says on the bag of photoLEstro chips
    that consuming them while on a job as a freelancer
    will cause leakge ... if not eating the chips doesn't stop the problem
    there is might be a pill for that.
    and in case he has the problem again
    he can get a box of protective undergarments
    delivered to his home in an unmarked box.
    leaking photographs can be messy... and
    it can deplete the body of vital nutrients
    like vitamin C (cash) and (camera) which are needed
    to continue working as a freelance photographer ...
    photoLEstro chip consumption, as seen, can cause
    embarassing moments for the freelancer, his subject and boss..

    He was a DOE employee, not a freelancer. The DOE likely owns the images he shoots because it is work for hire. He purposely photographed confidential documents and released them when they were not his to release. I have no sympathy for him. The story changes if their meeting or what went on was illegal, but alas, it was not (that I know of).
