The Bonneville Power Administration violated hiring practices involving veterans and then reportedly retaliated against the whistle-blowers who attempted to bring the matter to the attention of management. That’s according to the new report (pdf) by the Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General. 

As The Oregonian reports, BPA Administrator Bill Drummond and chief operating officer Anita Decker have been put on leave. We’ll find out more from Oregonian reporter Ted Sickinger who’s been following the story.
