False allegations must not be protected by a federal whistle blower protection act.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who has introduced a whistleblower bill in Congress, must include a severe penalty for any whistleblower making a false allegation. Loss of employment, forfeiture of all pay and benefits, no future employment by any city, county, state or federal agency seems adequate. Whistleblowing must not become a political tool. A false allegator must not be protected by a federal law.
