Whistle blowing occurs when a worker reports a violation of criminal law by the employer and then suffers reprisal from that

The case of the mysterious Ken Paxton machinations continues to develop. I previously wrote here and here about the whistleblower allegations against him. Four of his fired aides filed a lawsuit.
