Investigate the DEA’s reactivation of Andrew Chambers

Dear Friends,

Why has the Drug Enforcement Agency reactivated a discredited serial perjurer as a paid informant?

Earlier this year, a number of outlets reported that the DEA has been employing Andrew Chambers in undercover investigations across the country.1

Chambers was a paid informant for the DEA from 1986 to 2000. During that time he collected more than $4 million from the federal government and gave false testimony at least 16 times during that time period.

The DEA’s reprehensible behavior and misuse of taxpayer dollars must not go unchecked. It’s time Congress reign in the DEA’s shady practices.

Sign our petition calling for a congressional investigation into the DEA’s continued use of paid informant Andrew Chambers.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced a new and welcome commitment to drug policy reform in August, focusing specifically on rolling-back minimum sentencing requirements for non-violent drug offenders.2

Unfortunately, stories like the DEA’s continued use of Andrew Chambers call into question the Obama administration’s seriousness in ending the war on drugs.

The DEA has continued crackdowns on medical marijuana dispensaries despite the president’s promise to end such raids. This month, it was also reported that a secret unit of the DEA has been siphoning intelligence intercepts and wiretaps to build criminal cases against Americans – frequently in cases that have nothing to do with national security.3

Now we’ve learned the DEA is employing a known-perjurer to help build its cases. This revelation calls for a swift and thorough congressional investigation.

Sign our petition asking congress to find out why the DEA is still using a disgraced former paid informant and serial perjurer to build cases against Americans.

Thanks in advance for your help.

In Solidarity,
