Proof that Shit Floats to the Top

Updated on July 30, 2016 @ 6 a.m. EST

It was earlier reported that federal employee Mr. Aung Htein was provided “hush money” to conceal racism and corruption by his bosses Lisa LahrmanByron Zuidema and Portia Wu.

Portia Y. Wu, a graduate of both Yale and Cornell Universities had served as Special Assistant to President Obama before being sworn in as the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment and Training in April 2014.  Since taking office, Wu has orchestrated the greatest expansion and coverup of racism and whistleblower retaliation ever documented in the department. Now her boss Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez is upping the ante by dangling a Senior Executive Service job in front of Mr. Htein in exchange for his continued participation in covering up widespread racism against African Americans who work for him. Perez has already been dumped by the Clinton campaign as a potential vice presidential running mate because he was caught lying about his grandfather being expelled from the Dominican Republic for opposing the dictatorship of Rafael TrujilloArchival records show that his grandfather, Rafael Brache, was in fact one of the dictator’s champions.

Since 2014, Mr. Htein, who is currently a GS-15 Supervisory Information Technology Specialist, has seen his responsibilities and budget cut in half as a result of department-wide consolidations of technology resources and services into the Office of the Chief Information Officer which makes the senior level executive position that Perez is offering Htein now totally unjustified and clearly a bribe. One insider told this reporter, “Everyone who works here knows what is happening, but the Obama administration loves Perez, and the press have no interest in exposing any corruption by Democrats in this administration. Anyone who stands up to these racist pigs is crushed and their careers are immediately destroyed.”

On top of that, after blowing through millions of taxpayer dollars during the past year to modernize technology systems across the agency, the federal employees and contractor staff that Htein supervises should be reduced and his position and grade consolidated – not increased. Evidently, Perez feels that paying off Htein with a promotion for discriminating against African Americans and retaliating against Whistle Blowers is a better use of taxpayer funds.

Htein is also dodging a myriad of Inspector General complaints filed against him for working secretly with contractors to violate multiple sections of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). Two insiders told this reporter that all contracts awarded by Htein since May 2016 are being protested by vendors. And still, Perez wants to promote him.

Htein, who has worked at the Labor Department as a contractor or federal employee his entire adult life and Lahrman, who has also worked at the Labor Department for her entire career spanning more than three decades, are both living proof that over time, shit floats to the top in our government.

Watch a one minute plan to fix this problem

Finally, another reason for creating and dangling the new position in front of Htein is that the official report of investigation says that Aung Htein, who manages the technology office in the Employment and Training Administration is placing all the blame for the discrimination he administered at the feet of his boss Lisa Lahrman. Mr. Htein’s testimony claims that all his illegal actions were the result of orders he received directly from Lahrman, Zuidema and Wu – despite substantial evidence in the report that shows that Htein also had full advance knowledge of and even authorized and approved all the discriminatory and retaliatory actions he carried out without any protest.

Court documents also show that as early as last year Aung Htein told collegues that he was told by Zuidema and Wu that if he kept silent about the widespread discrimination and whistleblower retaliation at the agency that he would be offered a Senior Executive Service SES position in 2016. Well, with this latest bribe from Perez for all to see, Mr. Zuidema who is the Deputy Assistant Secretary fulfilled his promise to Htein, sending a signal to all African Americans that if you stand up to their tyranny, you will be destroyed. Several African Americans who work for Wu across the entire agency echoed the same concerns, “If a ‘real’ and unbiased investigation was ever conducted by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel or the Congress, these people would be fired and sent to prison or worse for the intentional harm and damage they have done to the African American workforce at the Labor department and across the nation.”

Major decisions  in this case are expected from the Merit Systems Protection Board and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that when concluded, will all be posted online for the world to see.

Aung Htein is a career federal bureaucrat at the U.S. Department of Labor. If Perez’s bribe is carried out, Htein will be selected for the newly created position and join Hillary Clinton’s protected club of corrupt senior officials in Washington D.C. The job posting on the website is being administered by Mr. John Sylvia who is a human resources specialist at Labor.  His phone number is 774-365-6851 and his email is

A Letter to all 2016 Presidential Candidates

~~ This is a letter from a federal Whistleblower’s Family ~~

All Presidential Candidates,

Whistleblowers are freelancers in the government and free press that help fight corruption and restore honor to government service. We are Americans who reside in Virginia.  One of us is a federal Whistleblower at a federal agency in Washington D.C.  We would like to offer you some advice:

The best way to identify and eliminate waste, fraud and abuse in our government is to create a culture of protection and honor for Whistleblowers. It will cost a fraction of what you’ll gain – not just in recovery efforts but also in prevention. We are not talking about snitches here; we are talking about people who are trying to do the right thing and will be permitted to do so. The Christian thing. And despite what your advisors might say, that culture does not exist today in our federal government anymore.

Everybody in this country knows about the waste, fraud and abuse in all our federal programs but no one inside the beltway will step up and help define it because they are afraid. Politicians lack courage to challenge it.  People who work in government or for contractors who work for the government are afraid to report anything

And don’t think for a moment that they don’t see it because everyone who is honest does. Their biggest fear in not coming forward is not being able to put food on their family dinner table since reporting corruption and fraud is analogous to committing treason in the federal government. The open acts of retaliation against Whistleblowers are ubiquitous.

We need revolutionary change in America – and here are some ideas we think will help you:

We need to incentivize all people who work in the government to report abuses by first protecting whistleblowers from retaliation.  That is the root cause of the problem.  The incentive to do what is right for our country has nearly evaporated during the Obama administration.  Whistleblowers have a target on their back and they all know it.

One way to dramatically disrupt Washington D.C. quickly is by finding a way to pay all Whistleblower legal fees – whether they win or lose – through whistleblower insurance and then rewarding Whistleblowers through national recognition.  The financial pain and physical and emotional suffering people like us and our families endure as Whistleblowers is horrendous, it is hell. It is the worst experience ever in our lives.

Whistleblowers should not have to bow down to seek protection from our bureaucracies and evil, incompetent and racist federal bureaucrats; they should be honored and given a medal for doing the right thing.

If you get elected our President, please put forward legislation in your first 100 days to immediately purge our government of the establishment elite and power hungry lobbyist and protected bureaucrats across our federal government.  Take immediate steps to clear the way for significant reforms that make our country great again by working with Whistleblowers to develop legislation that provides funding to support Whistleblowers legal fees.

Lastly, you will need to find a way to create a culture of protection and honor for Whistleblowers so that when fraud, waste and abuse appear, it is dealt with quickly and not concealed by government agency legal departments, boards, or commissions.

Best Wishes for Your Success in the Election,
