Bunny Greenhouse Was Featured on CBS ‘Whistleblower’ About Her Key Role Exposing Fraud in the Federal Government

The season finale of the CBS show ‘WHISTLEBLOWER’ aired on Friday, June 28, 2019, at 8 p.m. and featured Bunny Greenhouse, a NOVA adjunct faculty member. Greenhouse, a former chief contracting officer for the United States Army Corps of Engineers, testified before Congress in 2005 about irregularities in contracts between Halliburton and the federal government. She became a whistleblower standing up to some of Washington’s most powerful men on what she believed was massive fraud.

“It was the most blatant and improper contract abuse I have witnessed in the course of my professional career,” said Greenhouse. On the program, she discussed her experience regarding various attempts to silence her -- from demotions to threats, to eventually being awarded financial restitution in the amount $970,000 in 2011 by the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Greenhouse is currently a mathematics teacher at NOVA.
