Morris E. Fischer, Esq. Represents National Whistleblower in 300M Cover Up
We are very pleased to announce that for the third time in three years, one of our cases has made national news with national implications. Our office represents Michael Keegan, a former Associate Commissioner for Facilities for the Social Security Administration, who blew the whistle on Carolyn Colvin, the President’s nominee to lead the agency. In short, Ms. Colvin, failed to disclose to Congress a damning report regarding a 300 million dollar computer system to process disability claims of which she was aware. Moreover, she misled Congress into believing that the project was right on schedule without any notable issues.
According to Senate Finance Committee attorney, John Carlo, Mr. Keegan was the first to blow the whistle regarding this issue. Finance Committee Ranking Member, Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) penned a letter signed by prominent Senate Finance Committee members to Acting Social Security Administrator Carolyn Colvin asking a series of questions regarding an Inspector General (IG) investigation into the potential mismanagement of a nearly $300 million dollar project and a possible cover up by Social Security Administration (SSA) officials.
Said the Committee:
“We cannot in good faith allow a nomination for any position that requires the advice and consent of the Senate to proceed to a vote as long as the specter of a potential criminal investigation surrounds the nominee and/or those in their inner circle. Therefore, it is essential to address your role with respect to this inquiry before each of us can make an informed decision on how to vote for your nomination once it reaches the full Senate for consideration,”
