According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the story, FBI agents served grand jury subpoenas around 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, and seized computers and documents belonging to Bloch and his staff.

Well well... what's this about? The Office of Special Counsel deals with government integrity and protection of whistleblowers..


Office of Special Counsel
In his tenure, Mr. Bloch has focused the agency on stepping up enforcement, doubling numbers of positive whistleblower disclosures that have brought greater integrity and efficiency to agencies in the executive branch, and going after wrongdoers in all areas of civil rights, illegal political activity and coercion of political activity in the federal workplace. He has increased enforcement of service member employment and reemployment rights during an historic mobilization of America's volunteer armed forces, and has resolved backlogs in all areas of enforcement at the Office of Special Counsel, so that for the last three years, there are no backlogs. He has emphasized greater outreach nationally and has appeared in the national media often to emphasize the work of the office and the great heroes, ordinary heroes who have the courage to blow the whistle, who are helping to bring our government to greater accountability.


Oh my.. poor Scott has become a liability and has to go. It really doesn't pay to uncover corruption in the government.

Interesting. The Faux News article and the bio you posted seem to almost exactly contradict each other on this man's operational history. Is he a chamion of justice weeding out corruption, as the bio suggests, or is he a tyrant who punishes his employees arbitrarily for doing their jobs, as suggested by the article? Who wrote that bio? Was it a whitewash? Or is the bio correct, and Faux is the chosen avenue to set up a good guy for a hard fall? This one will require close attention.

Apparently he has been under investigation for quite a while!

From Original Article


Bloch has been under investigation since 2005 by the Office of Personnel Management for allegedly overstepping his authority and alleged retaliation against employees.

He has been on the hot seat since he took office in 2004, in part for closing hundreds of whistle-blower cases allegedly without investigating them.



Doesn't sound like he was doing his job very well, does it?



The Journal cited agency employees who said the raid appeared connected to a 2006 inquiry into his office, which itself is designed to protect those alleging government impropriety and fraud.

Bloch contacted the private-sector computer help company Geeks on Call in late 2006 to erase information from his government computer and from two of his staff members' computers.



Sounds like this guy had the wrong job to begin with!

He sure doesn't appear to be the kind of guy you'd want running The Office of Special Council!

Maybe something in the CIA would fit him better.

All these allegations against him are also what is written about him in Wikipedia!
