The Hanford Site Nuclear Cleanup Case
In Washington State, deep underground, are 177 football field-sized tanks of radioactive sludge. The Hanford Site is likely the most polluted places in the Western Hemisphere, and it’s the topic of today’s Fraud in America episode!
The government is working to cleanup the Hanford site, but four whistleblowers came forward to allege the company was overcharging the Department of Energy due to time card fraud. Cleveland Lawrence III, the whistleblower lawyer and Dan Fruchter, Assistant U.S. Attorney at the Eastern District of Washington who worked hand-in-hand during the case join the show today!
