The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the IRS share a problem: officials say they cannot provide the emails a congressional committee has requested because an employee’s hard drive crashed.
EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy confirmed to the House Oversight Committee Wednesday that her staff is unable to provide lawmakers all of the documents they have requested on the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska, because of a 2010 computer crash.
The hard drive in question was assigned to Philip North. And this is the part… this is just the part.
Crashed EPA hard drive belonged to Philip North. Refused O’sight Cmte iview. No one now knows where North is. Had planned yr long boat trip.
