Whistleblower’s! Is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblower’s Summit taking place every July in Washington, D.C.
Our guest is Debbie Coffey, V.P. Wild horse freedom Federation. She and the Federation have led the efforts to save our wild horses and burros from being managed into extinction by the Bureau of Land Management operating under the Department of Interior. Now, having been exposed numerous times for violating standing laws and environmental standards and protections, the DOI wants to purge many of its records so that no paper trail survives that would expose the corruption. This would include digital records.
Debbie has filed over a hundred FOIAs and knows the ins and outs of successful requests for information. But, with the Interior Department now attempting to get authorization to destroy large swaths of records and documents, much of it to be destroyed within a year of creation, the access to information by the public will be seriously impaired.
Many of these records pertain to gas, oil, water, mining and fracking. Many of these documents detail the abuse of public lands, the violation of certain laws and provisions that are meant to protect public lands from exploitation and the zeroing out of wild horses and burros.
