The dog ate my emails.

How conveeeenient.*

Six House leaders are pressing their demands for documents after a senior Environmental Protection Agency executive confirmed that Administrator Lisa Jackson has used a fake name and a secret email account while doing official business.

[A] secret email account identified as “Richard Windsor” was actually used by Jackson. But [EPA] did not provide the committee with any of the documents it had requested on the issue ….

The EPA’s Inspector-General announced … that it has opened an investigation into the use of such email accounts by EPA employees. It is against federal record-keeping laws and regulations to use a private or secret email account or fake name to conduct official business.

“While we understand the need for a secondary account for management and communication purposes, your choice to use a false identity remains baffling,” said … Chairman Ralph Hall, R-TX, and [ vice-chairman] James Sensenbrenner ….

The specific name was selected by Jackson, who once had a dog known as “Richard Windsor” …. [more]

(What? Yeah, lot’a work just for a title joke.)

    Are you trying to tell me that the EPA is engaging in deceptive practices and masking its communications like it’s always done since the good ole’ days of galloping incremental creepism from the old USSR?

    Get outta here!

    There’s a lot of polite discourse going on. The correct way to determine information is: “Look Bitch. If you don’t come clean, we’ll cut the money. Your department will be one desk, a pencil sharpener and a pay phone. Understand?”

    Will someone please grow a set in the house. You make the budget. The EPA gets nothing, not a wooden nickel until they come clean. If anyone wants to argue it squeeze tighter. This government is quickly becoming intolerable.

    The fucking Inspector General`s Office would have to be increased to the size of Stalin`s Red Army (…in 1945…) to do their job within this fucking Administration!
