Cisco VP Mike Quinn promises to hunt down whistleblower

After a Cisco employee anonymously leaked an internal company memo explaining an RFP proposal $100 million price difference to a blogger who published the memo, Cisco VP Mike Quinn took it upon himself to send out an email warning to all Cisco employees.

Quinn, who is a former CIA operations officer, urged the whistleblower to “have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and admit that they did this, then resign.”

Quinn reminds the whistleblower that “Cisco puts the groceries on your table every two weeks” and adds, “Now I know you do not have it in you to stand up and admit what you did, so I will now make you my ‘hobby.’ Ask around you will find out that I like to work on my hobbies.”

Not surprisingly, Quinn’s threatening email was leaked to the same blogger.
