President-elect Donald Trump has promised to “drain the swamp” of corporate cronyism.

How do you do that?

Patrick Burns of the TAF Education Fund has a suggestion. 

From a May 21, 2009 interview with Corporate Crime Reporter:

SEC whistleblower awards for Fiscal Year 2014 top $35 million, continuing a trend in increased antifraud law enforcement since the program’s inception in 2011.  Nine whistleblowers received awards, an increase from four awards in FY2013, which totaled approximately $15 million. The office awarded more than $30 million to one whistleblower, its largest-ever whistleblower award, and for the first time, the office used its authority under the Dodd-Frank Act to bring enforcement action against a company for retaliation against a whistleblower.
