About

Dr. Brian Penny is a former business analyst and operations manager at Countrywide and Bank of America turned whistleblower and freelance writer.

Leaving Bank of America

Brian Penny middle fingerOn January 5, 2011, Penny quit his job. Bank of America’s Corporate Security filed false bomb charges against Penny. After beating the charges, Penny leaked emails proving rampant corruption and fraud in the force-placed insurance industry.

This caught Penny up in a variety of legislation and regulations from the New York Department of Financial Services, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, State Attorneys General Coalition, Federal Housing Finance Agency, and multiple class action lawsuits.

On December 6, 2014, Penny was jailed by the Mesa Superior Court after a default civil defamation judgment in case CV2014-093104 for naming an executive in his leak.

On October 12, 2014, Penny’s Blogger blog was deleted by his former boss, so Penny moved his business to WordPress, where his 1st Amendment rights have not yet been violated by bogus court orders.

One year later on October 12, 2015, the January 2016 issue of High Times was being published, featuring the story of Penny’s incarceration in Tent City.

    Do you believe in a bigger plan, that you were uniquely qualified to be in the position you were in order to blow the whistle, or do you think it was random?
