April 18, 2012 -- Suppose your agency is next in the spotlight. And you either blew the whistle, looked the other way, or didn't know what was going on but find yourself in the middle.

What about the I-was-just-following-orders defense? When, where and how do you draw the line when you encounter a possible criminal or ethical situation at work? What next?

Washington attorney Bill Bransford answers those questions when he joins host Mike Causey on today's program. Bransford has represented a number of feds in high-profile cases involving alleged job misconduct, or whistleblowers who got into trouble for doing their duty.

Also, Federal Times' Steve Watkins and Sean Reilly have the latest on the General Services Administration conference spending scandal.
