ATF Whistleblower says he is being fired by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

An ATF agent who criticized – and publicized — the agency’s “Project Gunrunner” scandal says he’s being fired for politically motivated reasons.

Vince Cefalu says he was served with termination papers last week, and he says it’s because he’s been so vocal about mismanagement at Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, past and present. He was one of the whistleblowers who helped publicize the ATF’s role in allowing thousands of guns to be purchased by associates of Mexican drug cartels.

In 2005 Cefalu objected to the use of wiretaps to gather evidence. Cefalu says his role in exposing Project Gunrunner apparently was the last straw for his bosses. He can appeal his termination but will be on paid administrative leave during the process, Fox reported.
