EPA chief Jackson resigns amid transparency investigations into secret emails
[Daily Caller] A Washington attorney says that Environmental Protection Agency Chief Administrator Lisa Jackson's resignation and investigations into the EPA's use of secret email accounts are not coincidental.

"Life's full of coincidences, but this is too many," Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Chris Horner told FoxNews.com. "She had no choice."

The Justice Department also plans to release emails Jan. 14 in which EPA Chief Jackson's alias account discusses coal regulation. According to Horner, this clearly is a factor behind Jackson's decision to leave the agency.

"Two full committees and one investigative subcommittee of the House of Representatives have asked several federal agencies, including EPA and the White House," Horner said in a blurb, adding that the Department of Justice acknowledged "12,000 emails from Lisa Jackson's 'secondary' email account that discuss the B.O. regime's war on coal, in response to litigation we have filed over this practice."

#1  Put her in jail "pour l'encouragement des autres".

#2  E-mail generally has a sender as well as a recipient. Any word on recipients or specific content.... oh, of course not.

#3  Which name did she resign under? We will probably find she is still working for the government.

#4  So the whole Petraeus second email common practice thing was a pretense inflated by the media?

#5  She needs a kick in the ass before she leaves. An embarrassing Issa hearing, stripping her of any pension, make her radioactive even in Academia,...

#6  Shut down the EPA. It is a criminal enterprise design to extort money from American businesses.

Secretary of State Clinton hospitalized with blood clot: spokesman
Posted by: tipper || 12/30/2012 21:04 || Comments || Link || E-Mail|| [233 views] Top||

#1  Iff Hillary intends to run for POTUS come 2016, then IMO she has to testify about Benghazi blood clot or no blood clot.

Wid malicious allegations per her recent medical incident, THE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM IS THAT SHE'S RUNNING FOR COVER + NOT SHOWING PROPER FUTURE PRESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP.

Hillary has to decide iff she wants to be POTUS, or stay a Senator or other Fed Govt/Agency Top Critter.

Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

#1  It's not 'Federal Workers' - I don't see GS or WG paygrades in there. Just SES (Senior Executive Service) and above.

Just a tad misleading there, eh?
