Tom Devine is the legal director of the Government Accountability
Project which protects whistleblowers from retaliation. Mr. Devine has
defended whistleblower protection laws before congress and the courts.
Tom has assisted over 5,000 whistleblowers in defending themselves
against retaliation and in making real differences on behalf of the
public – such as shuttering accident-prone nuclear power plants,
rebuffing industry ploys to deregulate government meat inspection,
blocking the next generation of the bloated and porous “Star Wars”
missile defense systems, and sparking the withdrawal of dangerous
prescription drugs such as Vioxx.
