Former Macon Anchor Files Whistleblower Lawsuit Against Georgia National Guard

wmaz whistleblowerA former news news anchor for Macon CBS station WMAZ claims she was fired from her job with the Georgia National Guard after raising questions about ethics, according to a lawsuit filed July 24th. Mary Therese Grabowski, who was a WMAZ anchor for eight years, says within months of joining the Georgia Guard as a civilian public affairs officer, she began raising questions about improper and potentially unethical decisions made by Adjutant General Jim Butterworth:

“…questions like why Butterworth used Guard resources to organize a fundraiser for a private medical center.

Grabowski also claims she also questioned why Butterworth was attending an air show in Paris at a time when military furloughs and cuts were expected. She says she was told Butterworth would be a guest of the governor’s office, but later discovered he had stayed days after the governor left Paris.

Additionally, Grabowski claims she was asked by Butterworth’s wife to promote an event for country music singer Kaley Caperton, a personal friend of the Butterworths.”
