Future uncertain for Fort Wayne whistleblower

November 9, 2015

A Fort Wayne whistleblower and law school student says his future remains uncertain after his release of videos that show political misconduct in the city's clerk's office.

Colin Keeney, who will start his second year in law school at Indiana Tech in January, says he's still unemployed after leaving Parking Administration, where he worked for eight years.

Fort Wayne City Clerk Sandy Kennedy resigned amid allegations she threatened employees if they didn't support the election campaign of her deputy, Angie Davis.

The 48-year-old Keeney said he's not too worried about his financial future. However, he did tell The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne (http://bit.ly/1MFk6ob) the prospect that some employers may not want to hire him does bother him.

Sal Barbera, a Florida consultant who works with whistleblowers, says whistleblowers are considered troublemakers and usually blackballed from the industry that they work in.
