Subject: File Number S7-33-10: Whistleblower Award Program

December 9, 2010

Dear Ms. Murphy

I just signed a petition saying:

"More whistleblowing about corporate crimes could have made the foreclosure crisis and economic meltdown less severe. Whistleblowers should never be forced or engouraged to take their concerns to their potentially corrupt bosses first: Those who go directly to the government deserve the strongest rewards and protections allowed by law."

Demand Progress is taking sections the proposed rules out of context. I don't know what their problem is, but these rules are totally fine. They are not perfect, but I'm not sure how they could be. I'm ashamed that I was duped by them into sending you one of these e-mails earlier in the week. Sincerely, -Daniel Maurice
