Dr. David Graham, the FDA drug safety reviewer who warned Congress last week of the dangers of several drugs, now is afraid he will be fired and is seeking protection as a whistle-blower. He contacted the public-interest group Government Accountability Project for assistance, the organization's legal director said. He added his group also has received calls from FDA managers he interpreted as part of an effort to "smear" Graham. The FDA released a statement saying an employee had contacted the GAP but also said the agency recognizes the importance of debate by its employees.
