The friends of Richard Windsor, part 2

My daughter Eliana’s column on today’s installment of the Richard Windsor scandal is not to be missed. In the most transparent administration in our history, “Windsor” is of course the covert bureaucratic email alter ego of former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. And that’s not all! Windsor, Eliana reported, was also an employee of significant achievement. Documents released by the agency in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by CEI’s Christopher Horner reveal that, for three years, the EPA certified Windsor as a “scholar of ethical behavior.” Jackson has taken us to a land somewhere beyond satire.

A reader writes to comment:

I am an EPA employee and can tell you that as of TODAY, Richard Windsor still has an e-mail box. The weird thing is that the EPA Office of Environmental Information is so bureaucratic and intransigent that it would make a fictitious person go through all these training requirements. If it makes you feel any better, you can see that EPA does to its own employees what some of the rest of the Agency does to the public.


It doesn’t make me feel any better, but please keep those cards and letters coming.
