An Open Email to DOT Inspector General Staffer Scott Harding
Several months ago in a phone discussion with you, I had hoped to arrange a meeting with the staff of DOT Inspector General Calvin Scovel with many major FAA/DHS whistleblowers present, but your office advised that I might not be permitted in the DOT building should we arrive unannounced without invitation. Shortly thereafter,Mr. Robert Westbrooks sent me a letteradvising me that my case with the DOT that includedRICO allegationsthat should have been investigated years ago by the DOJ, and which is currentlyunder investigation by the Atlanta SEC office, was closed.
It is my intent to file a claim for damages against the U.S.government in the amount of $20-million in the next few months in accordance with the time provisions of the Federal Tort Claims Act. By the time my case reaches the docket,my allegations will be public knowledgeand I will have won my case in thecourt of global public opinionbefore the federal judge even has the chance to slam down the gavel.
