What happens when the person in charge of protecting whistle blowers is alleged to have retaliated against employees who pointed out possible wrongdoing?

“SEC Watchdog Faces Complaints,” The Wall Street Journal, November 13, 2017 B9.  The Inspector General at the SEC faces complaints of retaliation against whistle blowers, who raised time and attendance fraud.  Was there also some office hanky-panky?  The investigation may also not have been independent.

It’s good when the government gives examples of behavior.  It would be better if they were examples of good behavior.
