Issa launches complaint site, gets some complaints

John Moe Jan 12, 2011

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is now in charge of a website on which anyone can send the House Oversight Committee examples of fraud and abuse.

Issa tweeted about it:

Got any tips on government waste/fraud/abuse? Here’s our secure, anonymous #whistleblower portal please share…

The Hill lists some suggestions posted on Twitter so far:

“Please investigate lost $8 billion cash in Iraq by Hailburton contractor.”
“investigate ties between violence & nat’l political dialogue”
“Corporate loopholes that disadvantage small business”
“Giving trillions to rich via ‘tax cuts'”
“Entire Afghanistan war.”
