Judge Holds Clinton EPA in Contempt of Court - featuring Carol Browner

Posted by bills under Red-Liberals

What kind of people does Alfred E. Boman put in his administration? People like Carol Browner. While at the EPA in January 2001, Browner and the EPA were ordered by a Judge to retain records pursuant to a discovery filed by the Landmark Legal Foundation. The LLF was concerned that the EPA would be violating the freedom of information act by destroying emails and data relating to what Mark Levin, counsel for the LLF, contended was to be an unprecedented set of executive decisions by the lame duck president Bill Clinton. You might remember when the left accused George Bush of reversing regulations prohibiting high levels of zinc in drinking water. The fact was, the cowardly Clinton enacted the unrealistically stringent drinking water standards in the last days of his office, in an overtly partisan political act. The EPA admitted that they, as well as several other Clinton administration officials had reformatted their hard drives shortly after President George W. Bush's inauguration, in defiance of the court order and contrary to government policy. They were found in contempt of court, and ordered to repay tens of thousands of dollars of legal costs to the LLF. Said Landmark President Mark Levin. "The EPA destroyed vast databases that would have revealed the extent to which Carol Browner and other top officials worked with environmental groups to issue last-minute regulations prior to the end of the Clinton administration. "Now Carol Browner, a partisan, sneaky, underhanded lefty has been given the ubiquitous title of 'Coordinator of Energy and Climate Policy'. Lefties are hoping she can destroy the coal industry, and burden every gallon of gasoline with massive new taxes. She will hamper the economy while undoubtedly incurring more and more legal fees, paid for by Uncle Sam out of our taxes with her sloppy yet vicious zeal. And just like zinc levels in groundwater, (measured in parts per billion) all to save the children.
