Whistleblower Files Federal Lawsuit

Back in July 2014 some of the disgusting and unethical behind the scenes operation of what we call Sullivan County Government exploded as a DFS Whitleblower addressed the Sullivan County legislature before an Executive Session.

Since that time Kim Martin’s Life has been destroyed. This week Kim Martin filed a Federal Lawsuit against Sullivan County – She is seeking compensatory damages in the sum of $750,000.

Just ask Kim’s husband Christopher Martin and he will gladly tell you what has happened to loving wife and why she had no alternative but to file this Federal Lawsuit.

In fact – Here are Christopher Martin’s own words:

“Yes, as we all know my wife is the whistle blower in Sullivan County. The facts speak for themselves.
“What you may not know is the pain that she has had to endure. Its been three long years that I have watched her suffer for doing the right thing. When she should have been applauded she was crucified. When she tried to defend herself against the harassment – she was seen as the problem.

If you knew my wife there is no question she is by the book and she took her job responsibilities very seriously. She was one hell of a worker until she was beat down for doing the right thing.

How would anyone feel if everything they had worked for was taken away from them for being vigilant and finding fraud?

She has been there for almost thirteen years and before this happened never took time off.

When this came out she not only had to use every last bit of time she had, some even at the request of the County, she had to seek professional medical help.

I’ve had to watch her cry just about every day and there was nothing I could do for her.

The last thing that she wanted was to sue anyone, she had begged the County to make good on all their empty promises to her but her cries went unanswered.

We can no longer sit back and take what is being given to her.

She has fought hard and I admire this woman as well every tax payer in Sullivan County should.

In the end – she was only doing her job at first – then after she was given no choice she went on her own time and went further and fought like a lioness protecting her cubs.

We are also taxpayers and homeowners in this County and for anyone to question her motives would be insane behavior.

Some County legislators are not running because they also were put in similar situations by others.

Mrs. Cindy Geiger was one of the only ones that took my wife seriously but now look what has happened to her!

When is this County going to get off their proverbial asses and ask questions and get involved?

How can we sit back and let all of this go on?

I call on the current Legislators and those running for those positions to make change.

Be more transparent so all of us tax payers know what really is going on with Administration and our money.

Stand up for what is right and please go ahead and use my wife as a role model as that is what she should have been seen from the start.

No one should have to feel as though they can’t shop or go out in their own community as my wife has had to do.
She should not have to hide in our home anymore.”

    My issue with this lawsuit is that the taxpayers will eventually have to pay for it. I wish that the lawsuit were aimed at the specific animals who abused her so that THEY would end up paying out of their miserable pockets.

    Exactly Chris! Kim should be and I hope vindicated for all she has had to endure. No one should be harassed and threatened in the work place. Good for her. God bless your family for putting up with all that you have. Kim is courageous and should be appaulded for her job that was in fact well done!
