Human Rights Activists Take Hard Line on Leader of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel
Today, representatives of Opt IN USA request U.S. Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus leaders to place a "Hold" on Carolyn Lerner's confirmation for an unprecedented second term as Special Counsel of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

On behalf of Opt IN USA, attorney Zena Crenshaw-Logal*
Crenshaw-Logal and Jackson elaborate for Senators Grassely and Wyden on "a synergy of quiescent lawyers and judges, subdued by the prospect of retaliatory professional discipline; ineffective federal agencies such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Special Counsel; America's beleaguered Public Defender system; the stealth but distinct oppression and mental torture attendant to (persistent U.S. legal system abuse); undue insulation of U.S. government officials from accountability;
Having successfully filed amici briefs in the Carson appeal, Crenshaw-Logal and Jackson interject, "OSC simply claims that regardless of whether it complied with its non-discretionary statutory duties to protect Mr. Carson, such act(s) and/or omission(s) did not cause a 'significant change in working conditions,' so he has no recourse." They add, "(b)y making such an argument to a federal court in a whistleblower reprisal appeal, we submit that Lerner disqualifies herself from further consideration for a second term as U.S. Special Counsel."
