Earlier this week, the ACLU sent a letter to ATF Deputy Director Thomas Brandon after an outside working application submitted by ATF Special Agent and Operation Fast and Furious whistleblower John Dodson was denied. Dodson's outside work application was for a book manuscript, The Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and Furious, which Dodson worked on in his own time. The request was denied by Deputy Ethics Official Greg Serres in August 2013 on the basis that supervisors can deny outside employment for any reason" and that the publication of his manuscript would have a negative impact on morale and a detrimental effect [sic] on [ATF] relationships.
From the denial letter, written by Serres and signed off on by Phoenix Special Agent in Charge Thomas Atteberry, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Carlos Canino, and Acting Deputy Assistant Director Joseph Anarumo:

Of course they do.
“ATF denies ...”
IRS denies targeting conservatives. EPA, same/same. NSA denies reading your e-mail. Obama denies knowing ...
With this administration, a denial is preliminary to an apology, that never really comes ...
There, much more accurate...
Have it published in the UK with the note on the front:
This book banned in America.
People used to publish books with “Banned in Boston” even though they hadn’t been. Instant best sellers.
This from the atf is akin to a rapist saying “we’re just on a date.”
I wonder if trying to publish the book actually applies as "outside employment". If so, they need to tell him to un-write the book, because the work has already been done.
ATF denies Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press — take them to the matt - -publish it electronically overseas and load it up for free on every freedom blog.
