Boeing Worker Who Talked To Seattle Paper Says He's FiredBy Deborah Gage | Posted Tuesday, October 02, 2007 23:10 PM
As this blog noted, the paper reported in July that Boeing spent millions of dollars bringing in consultants to test its financial systems for fraud--in part because of its "inability to patch database and software development security holes" revealed during audits for Boeing's compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley.
The paper would not say if the stories used any information from Tides. But it reports receiving an anonymous e-mail on Friday that Boeing is hunting for "SOX whistleblowers." Boeing would not comment on the e-mail or Tides and denied the original stories.
Tides said he never expected to lose his job and was "trying...to save the company."
