The Devil Inside the Beltway is a MUST read for everyone that thinks they have heard about the abuse of the privacy of private citizens by the Federal government (this time with FTC at the lead). One basic question kept going through my mind as I read the account of years of 'investigation' and legal game, "How can the victim of thief be the party that did wrong?" Michael Daugherty's company had files STOLEN, without giving permission to the thief. They are the victim!!! The Devil Inside the Beltway tells every detail from when a private company, Tiversa, Inc.(one of the thieves) called LabMD, Inc. to inform LabMD, Inc. that they had taken 1718 pages of patient information, you have a security problem so hire us (the thief) to fix it for you; no we will not give you your file back but we will share it with Congress, the FTC and in so doing share the PRIVATE medical records of your sick clients, if you do not hire us. How dumb would that be? One thing Michael Daugherty is not and that is dumb. The lengths that the FTC goes to make LabMD, Inc. and Michael Daugherty into the party that is wrong in this is unbelievable. The appeal process where the internal people in control of the FTC decide all appeals and the person making the appeal is not allowed representation at the appeal hearing. Does this sound like due process that our nation's Constitution was based upon? The Devil Inside the Beltway tells of the worst abuse of personal rights you can imagine. Mr. Daugherty deserves the highest respect for his ability and willingness to fight the giant blob like government slim machine that gobbles up citizens with no conscience or moral compass. The government bureaucratic blog gobbles private enterprise just to give the lawyers working in the blog jollies; the Founding Fathers and writers or our Constitution must be spinning in their graves over what has become 'normal' in the departments of the Federal government. It is an outrage that they do this; that they get away with it is way scary. The Devil in the Beltway is a must read if you REALLY want to know how our government works for us, not scratch that ~ against us as citizens. My thanks go to both Michael J. Daugherty for his generosity and to First Reads Books sponsored by Goodreads where I won this book.
