Top EPA official resigns. Plenty left....

by MeadowsMike on April 30, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


A top EPA official has resigned after coming under scrutiny for 2010 remarks in which he compared the agency's enforcement strategy to Roman crucifixion.

...

Inhofe said Monday that the resignation would not stop the ongoing investigation into EPA policies.

"We will continue our investigation into the situations surrounding EPA's apparent crucifixion victims: the American people deserve to know why, in at least three separate cases, EPA tarnished the reputation of companies by accusing them of water contamination; then when the results of their study did not turn out the way they hoped, and they had no definitive evidence to make that link, they quietly walked back their accusations. We will get to the bottom of this -- and we will continue looking into EPA's actions on hydraulic fracturing beyond these three cases as well," he said in a statement.
