J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS: Local Government Graft, Corruption and Retaliation in Democrat-Run Virginia. “Big wasteful government isn’t only a federal phenomenon. And if you’re an honest government employee in the City of Alexandria in the Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C., you better watch out. Because if you ‘blow the whistle’ on inappropriate, unethical, or improper government spending, your bosses will retaliate and fire you for speaking up on behalf of the tax-payers. All across America, billions of taxpayer dollars are wasted or mismanaged by local governments every year because of little-to-no government transparency or accountability. Alexandria, Virginia, provides an example of why.”
