John Tye Seeks Protections for Photographer

Former Fellow John Tye (’06) was pictured and quoted in a New York Times article about his client, who leaked photographs of Energy Secretary Rick Perry meeting privately with a major energy industry donor to President Trump (“He Leaked a Photo of Rick Perry Hugging a Coal Executive. Then He Lost His Job,” Jan. 17). John said that, by filing a complaint with the Energy Department’s inspector general, his client was seeking protections provided to federal whistle-blowers. John recently co-founded a nonprofit law office to support whistleblowers.
