Tom Devine has served for 26 years as legal director of the Government Accountability Project, a non-profit, non-partisan public interest law firm that helps "whistleblowers." GAP has led the campaigns to enact, defend and monitor nearly all federal whistleblower laws, including the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 and state of the art corporate free speech rights in the Sarbanes Oxley law. As well as representing or counseling over 1,500 whistleblowers, he has authored or co-authored three books on whistleblowing, six academic or law journal articles, and numerous newspaper editorials. Devine teamed up with Professors Robert Vaughn and Keith Henderson of the Washington College of Law to co-author a model whistleblower law approved by the Organization of American States to implement its Inter-American Convention Against Corruption.
