    This is great for the government and the whistleblowers and a boon for justice. In previous years, whistleblowers were pretty unprotected and were subject to vicious forms of payback. It just shows people will keep quiet if they feel they are not going to be protected in any kind of way. If you give them some protected platform where they will reveal corruption and bad behavior, you can't keep them away.
