Protect whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden

Progressive Change Campaign Committee

Congress and President Obama should protect, not prosecute, whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden who courageously reveal government crimes and wrongdoing.

Why is this important?

On Sunday, 29-year-old Edward Snowden outed himself as the person who informed the public that our government is spying on us and lying to us.

Edward Snowden revealed the elements of a crime. That makes him a whistle-blower, and he deserves our full support.

Mr. Snowden revealed limited information to corroborate his allegations, without revealing details regarding a specific operation. He exposed criminal misconduct. Whistle-blowers with Mr. Snowden's courage must be fully protected -- not prosecuted.

Tell Congress and President Obama to protect whistle-blowers.
