Chickens Come Home to Roost: Scott J. Bloch

by roxy & avahome

Almost two years ago -- May, 2008 -- a commentary was posted by greyhawk bringing our attention to Scott J. Bloch and some shenanigans over at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

The money quote from that commentary:

But he shut down an investigation into whether the Justice Department was hinging its hiring decisions on job applicants' political affiliations.

Kudos to avahome for finding this followup.  This week it is reported that Bloch is preparing to file a guilty plea.

Scott J. Bloch, the former director of a federal office in charge of helping shield government whistleblowers from unfair treatment, plans to plead guilty to withholding information from congressional investigators after he had his office computer files professionally deleted in 2006.

Chickens slowly come home to roost.
