Michael Winston is a former executive at Countrywide Financial Corporation, who blew the whistle on the company's clearly fraudulent activities that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent recession.
A guest on GAP's American Whistleblower Tour initiative and a close collaborator of ours, Winston has agreed to publish several entries on The Whistleblogger regarding both his experience as a truth-teller in the finance industry, and the continued lack of accountability enforced by the government toward the officers of large-scale financial institutions.
These entries are part of GAP's Know Your Rights campaign covering the Banking Industry.
