“Michael McCray deconstructs ACORN shenanigans from the LEFT in this groundbreaking memoir. His provocative exposé reveals an intriguing story of hypocrisy and deceit within a [Non-Profit] organization which is strong on substance and passion.”


—The Honorable J.C. Watts, Retired, United States House of Representatives




“You’ve got to go through the gory to get to the glory."

 Michael McCray’s presentation and personal testimony on the impact of whistleblowing in the federal sector was very thought provoking and engaging. I realized as educators we have been guilty of sharing the “glory” side but not the “gory” side of whistleblowing. We rarely think of the great sacrifices on whistleblowers and their families as a result of them speaking out about injustices. His personal story on the betrayal you experienced for upholding the values of accountability and ethical conduct was enlightening.
