Sherry Streicker was told her job at the state ethics commission went away last year because of budget issues, not her performance. But when a new position opened there with nearly identical duties, she says in a new whistleblower suit, she couldn’t even get in the door for an interview.
Streicker and Stacey Kalberman, once the top two executives at the State Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, filed suit June 8 claiming they were fired for investigating possible wrongdoing by the 2010 campaign of Gov. Nathan Deal. Each suit was filed under the Georgia Whistleblower Act, seeking back pay, reinstatement and compensatory damages.

Streicker’s denial of a subsequent interview, if true, is a new wrinkle entirely.
