Re: Letter from the Office of the Inspector General of the Peace Corps
Thanks for speaking up. I don't think there is one right way to
approach the problem. Going public, which you and Nancy seem to
favor, is one way. Working through the channels, as you put it, is
another. It should be noted, however, that I'm looking at channels
outside the executive branch, which is why I haven't contacted the PC
Director or the President. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think if we can
get our legislators, and particularly their auditing arm (i.e., the
GAO), to put some pressure on the Department of Labor and Peace
Corps, I believe we can get some action. Nothing I've said should
discourage anyone from contacting Oprah, 60 minutes, or NBC news.
Action on multiple fronts can be very effective.
P.S. If someone wants to take the lead in inviting members of the
media to visit this forum, I'm all for it. There are stories here,
but whether they're newsworthy or would have broad public appeal is
for the media to decide.
