NC Among The States Targeted In New Whistleblower Site

An Appalachian version of Wiki Leaks launched Tuesday focusing on North Carolina and several other states.

The website where whistleblowers can anonymously share official documents was started by a handful of freelance journalists and computer programmers.

The co-founder, Jim Tobias, says government and corporate whistleblowers can post documents on the website without revealing their own identities.

A team of reporters and programmers will verify the legitimacy of the documents before they're publicly accessible.

Honest Appalachia will focus its initial outreach efforts in North Carolina and six other states including: West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

    as corrupt as nc is we need desperatley to have whistleblowers in place.... in fact as much as i dislike the federal govment we need the fed to oversee the totally corrupt legal system here in nc-- the chicago mafia has nothing on nc politics or legal system.

    Blowing the whistle loudly! Can someone explain what the democrats that ran our representitives for so many years need to give us all the combined types of taxes that most states don't even have? Example, income tax, property tax, high gas tax, sales tax and a high sales tax compared to other states? Where did the money go? Bev, where did the money go? Most states only have one or two, NC has "all of the above".

      Find the documents backing up your claims and post them! If they exist and can prove you right, you should find them.

        No one is that stupid...really? So you don't pay income taxes, gas taxes, sales taxes and property taxes in NC? Do you not know how to use the internet to find out "which states have no income taxes"...so forth? No one should be that ignorant unless they are in the 5th grade.....

      Did you ever think that maybe your termination could be related to your lack of acceptable communication skills(i.e. spelling, grammar, sentence structure)and not "telling the truth"?

        It's like spellcheck, proof reading and careless mistakes were ignored when BeachBum3 typed his prattle.

      Yes we do, but there is no protection under the law for whistle blowers in NC.
