BRADENTON, Fla. – Do you have a photo of local county, city employees or elected officials wasting taxpayer dollars? Now you have a way to report it anonymously.

LPMC GovStoppers

The website GovStoppers.com went live this week to offer Manatee County residents a new way to anonymously report government waste, fraud and corruption. The website provides visitors a safe, anonymous place to post photos and documents without those posts being ever traced back to them.

The project is the brainchild of the Libertarian Party of Manatee County.

“While some agencies may have ways to report fraud, often a report must be made to the very agency involved, for example the School Board

website,” says LPMC Chair Ray Wolff. “This is bit like the fox watching the hen house. GovStoppers.com is a better way to make such reports.”

Wolff says local Libertarians seek to establish more transparency and accountability to Manatee city and city government with GovStoppers.

“As the Libertarian Party of Manatee County, we see one of our roles as a third party is to bring openness, trust and transparency to our local government,” Wolff says. “With help from the public and government employees, GovStoppers can be the impartial and anonymous way to bring local government waste and corruption to light.”

The website is built with anonymity in mind, said Wolff. The site uses anonymous third-party messaging and email to access GovStoppers and send files. Its photo upload feature does not log or store information that could link the photos with the sender.

Wolff says Libertarians, despite being America’s fastest growing political party, it continues to face ballot access restrictions engineered by Democrats and Republicans. The restrictions are clearly intended to discourage independents and third-party candidates from winning office and affect political change for the better, he says.

“Even with those limitations, Libertarians can promote change in our local Manatee government,” Wolff says. “Although we are hopeful that our local government agencies are free from fraud, bribes, nepotism, misuse of resources, bribes, employee waste and corruption, GovStoppers.com is here should they need to be reported.”

Is there any need for Congress at this point

How much are taxes going to increase to pay for all this "free" money

🤦🏻‍♀️ abuse of power is abuse of power. Dems would condemn this and Reps would celebrate this if he were an R.

Make career politicians and bureaucrats richer in the backs of the taxpayer.

While he is destroying our jobs and driving the price of gas thru the roof (stay tuned) he is giving everyone a pittance that he would NEVER consider living on.

I’m so happy I don’t pay taxes... y’all are just getting fucked.

Just like the last 40 years have been. If Congress would do their jobs things would flow better

"Mr. Biden has proposed a $1.9 trillion relief plan"125 million tax payers. So each tax payer should be getting $15k each?

Madness at large

He actually signed blank pages.

"Free" money...

Emperor Biden?

Ok here we go with all the republicans and Right leaning LP members.I dont recall many of you saying anything when trump was signing his.Donald J. Trump Total220 Executive orders.Obama in 8 years signed 276. Bush Jr 291 Clinton 364 Reagan 381So please tell me how 30 are an issue.Biden should get at least 220 right? Cause none of you complained about it then.

Amazing the left hates executive orders when it comes from the right but they are cheering right now. Like do they have whiplash from changing their stance so fast?

*yawns*

Biden is the anti-Libertarian.

A. This is a shit show. B. Is this saying he’s only moving toward changing the minimum wage for federal employees? Or just in general?

I'm old enough to remember when laws were legislated by the bicameral legislature.
