    She accessed information that she had no business accessing. She divulged information that she had no business divulging. She should be fired. Anybody else, me included that was working for a normal non-government business would be fired just like she was. Why would someone in her role access information except for minding business and divulging information that was not hers to give out? I know that the people actually working with this case had more information than we do but why are we constantly barraged with double standards?

    Shouldn't she (or whoever did blow the whistle) be praised and rewarded for coming forth?

    And shouldn't those responsible be out looking for new jobs?

    I have to agree with the state findings on this case of whistle blowing of fraud and corruption laws. It is every citizens right and duty and law to report known fraud regardless of nondisclosure and confidentiality documents.

    Now why wasn't this same protections given to the workers in the DWFS who revealed ID theft and open fruad being perpetrated the the department heads? They should even have the decency to step down for their breech of trust and have some respect for their misdeeds and self serving greed. A Japaneses leader caught in wrong doings would kill himself out of respect for his subjects and save face, but we aren't asking these people to go that far, yet.

    The department heads of all these organizations should be very much in question and put on notice and fired for their blatant and open fraud programs. They are accountable to the taxpayers and citizens and deserve the full extent of the law for committing fraud and lying about it.
