Some update links on Lisa Jackson.

Some links on the Lisa Jackson / Richard Windsor sudden-retirement “thing.”


Watts Up With That?
:

U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.) made the following statement today after the outgoing U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson released a portion of her emails that have been under scrutiny for using a secondary email alias, “Richard Windsor.” The EPA has also redacted names in the emails using a Freedom of Information Act exemption that does not apply to the released emails.

“This strikes me as incredibly fishy and begs a number of important questions,” Vitter said.

CNS News:

Chris Horner of the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute says he discovered Jackson’s “false identity” while doing research for his book, “The Liberal War on Transparency.”

Late Monday, Horner called the EPA’s document release “deeply troubling.”

“[It] seems to have gravely compounded the unlawful activity we have exposed involving a false identity assumed for federal recordkeeping purposes,” he said.

Hot Air:

…no, it is not your imagination that using alternative e-mail addresses to conduct public business seems like a much bigger deal when it’s Republicans doing it.

Personally, I’m content to wait a bit, and watch this blow up a little more, largely because there’s usually a reason why a career bureaucrat (which is precisely what Lisa Jackson is, or more accurately, was) up and quits with no reason; and it’s usually a sockeldanger of a reason if the bureaucrat can’t expect the President to shield her the way that he did Eric Holder. Also along those lines; any word on why Hilda Solis resigned so quick, too? …Oh, well, the year is young.

    They are both female? Obama seems willing to throw his support behind the old boys club( hagel/holton) and quick to throw women under the bus ( rice). Maybe there is sething to those od chicago boystown rumors

      Y’know, if either of these ladies ever gets perp-walked, we really need to recycle that joke …

    I think there will be a lot more to come on this. A Presidents second term never goes as well as his first. And O’bama’s first term was a disaster. The problem is the MSM won’t cover it but if things go bad enough they will Have To.

      I am sorry, but how does the coverage of this every get out of the conservative media and into mainstream. There is only a small group of us that follow these things and everyone thinks we are all wackos. Conservatives need better media presence.

        Eventually, earlgrey, Jimmy Carter was mocked on SNL.
        .
        That’s the metric I’m using, I want to see Obama mocked, and I think we’ll get there.

        The problem isn’t that “conservatives need media presence”, the problem is we need a more honest and curious media, but eventually they will either become Baghdad Bob, or they will admit that times are bad and start asking why Obama isn’t making things better.

          Acat, I get what you are saying, but won’t it be too late by then. Was it actually too late even before the election?

          BTW, I have to crow about our local activist group defeating anti-business, union backed local ordinance. I’d write a diary about it for Red State, but between laziness, poor writing skills and terrible grammar, I can’t bring myself to do it. There was collateral damage, I did look really stupid on local TV. But me and my fellow activists actually worked for this and we were supported by local business groups who in turn showed appreciation towards us. Awesome stuff— until you start looking at everything else going on.

            Definitely write it up, earlgrey. The nice part about a pseudonym is deniability, eh? (earlgrey doesn’t look stupid, that’s someone else …)
            .
            What you’ve done, earlgrey, is to win, and even the littlest victories count. You’ve ensured your area is less restricted, less tied down, more economically competitive .. and that will bear fruit.
            .
            Hang in there! “Too late” is relative.
