That is the Federal Government for you. The joke in Washington DC is that if two people know about it, then it is not a secret. I do not think there is much you can do about this. I think you did the right thing, but you may have been burnt in the process. Doing the right thing does not always work to your advantage. I would still do what you did in a heartbeat. Its called having morals, and that should apply to anyone not just politicians.
That reminds me of Carlos Marcello the Mafia boss of New Orleans. He had a sign posted in his office that said,
"Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead" or something to that effect.
