Dear Members of Congress
Senator Marco Rubio
Senator Rick Scott
Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart
The U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board is broken and nobody cares. I begged for your help for many years, and you ignored me. Now the MSPB has a quorum.
I have been waiting since 2015 for my whistleblower complaint to be heard. Delay, deny, hope you die is the government’s strategy to kill whistleblowing, and it works.
My precedent setting case against the U.S. Department of Labor will establish whether white people who report discrimination carried out against African Americans are protected from retaliation under federal whistleblower law.
Merit Systems Protection Board Administrative Judge Sherry A. Zamora has challenged the legislative intent of the word ‘any.’ In her decision to DISMISS she wrote, “The appellant (John Stuart Edwards) clearly objects to an alleged agency practice whereby the agency fails to promote African-American employees” however, “the appeal is dismissed without a hearing because Appellant’s allegations, even if proved, would not establish jurisdiction.”
“Systemic Racism” is present when the people in an organization at every level turn a blind eye to racism when it is presented to them. With her decision, Judge Sherry A. Zamora turned a blind eye. Now it is up to the new board to decide if it is racist, too.
Freedom of Information Act Request
Here is a link to my case file that the MSPB is providing to anyone under the Freedom of Information Act.
Docket Number DC-1221-16-0227-W-1
John Stuart Edwards v Department of Labor
My hope is you will read my case, see why it is important, and then do your job.
In conclusion, “Congress designed the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (WPEA) to provide IRA protections to a new class of disclosures described under 5 USC 2302(b)(9). Appellant’s protests to management and through the EEO process as to the rights of African-Americans to fair agency treatment fall within the statutory design. The Administrative Judge’s failure directly to apply the WPEA, her reliance upon selected pre-WPEA decisions, and her failure to recognize the significance of Armstrong and kindred cases, was error.”
