Whistleblower Sounds Alarm on Leading Senate Candidate

A former health official is telling Montana residents that the Democrat’s nominee for the United States Senate election, former Governor Steve Bullock, bullied her for reporting fraudulent financial transactions.

Standing up to Bullock and his cronies reportedly cost her her job.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Collin Anderson reports:

Wendie Fredrickson, who served as a Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services audit reviewer for more than 20 years, said Bullock “intimidated [state regulators] into ignoring fraud” when they discovered that “roughly about half of the payments were fraudulent” at the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. After questioning the payments made to undocumented recipients, Fredrickson was stripped of her responsibilities and forced to retire in 2014. In an interview with the Washington Free Beacon, Fredrickson said she uncovered the allegedly fraudulent payments after performing a “routine review,” but administration officials suppressed her attempt to report the payments to the state’s Legislative Audit Division.

“When I went to write the report, they put me in a room with no phone, no internet. They did that with quite a few auditors, anyone they weren’t happy with,” Fredrickson said. “I went back to my desk and I had a note saying, ‘You’re not allowed to talk to legislative audit, you’re not allowed to talk to anyone.’ And if I did talk to anyone, they threatened to sue, so I was scared to death to bring things forward.”

Fredrickson has decided to take what was once an internal battle against the governor’s office to the campaign trail, running as a Green Party candidate for the Senate—a closely watched race between Bullock and Sen. Steve Daines (R., Mont.).

RealClearPolitics has put the Montana Senate race in its toss-up category.

Bullock’s office did not respond to a request for comment. His spokeswoman denied the allegations in 2016, telling the local Independent Record that the questionable transactions were “forwarded to the legislative auditor” who “failed to find evidence of fraud, waste, or abuse.”

Surprised? Why would she be? Didn’t she know that democrats are a bunch of corrupt liars who don’t care about the people they represent but just want power, money and control? If she’s really honest she’d vote Trump 2020.

Gert outside of government offices and outside of major cities there and the citizens carry weapons, they Use them. They are HONEST and hard workmen and not interested in the BS of government. In fact that it one state that I bet very few times officers leave city streets and roads and travel onto private property uninvited.

“they threatened to sue” I would have gotten and attorney and filed false imprisonment charges, charges against the department for a HOSTILE Work environment, attempted constructive dismissal, and in the suit I would have named the exact information that they were attempting to thwart the reporting of, I would have named them all as CO-Conspirators with Bullock in the misuse, is-appropriation and or cover up of such abuse.
My suit would have been for FULL retirement from my planned retirement date with all benefits, as well as done to expose the corruption.
If any of the orders or statements were meant to cause me NOT to perform my legal duties the suit would go on and on…and the DA would have a copy about 2 hours before filing it.

I say sue the hell out of each of them personally NOW and well as your department.
