Lisa Jackson Hires Lawyer for Email Concealment Fiasco

Lisa Jackson, EPA AdministratorBy Paul Chesser

In a sign her troubles have undergone a significant expansion, the Washington Free Beacon reported last week that former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has hired a lawyer as new details of her use of private email accounts to conduct official government business were revealed.

The agency and its previous head have still breathed easy despite months of inquiries and Freedom of Information Act requests from Chris Horner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and American Tradition Institute. Jackson and enviro-crats have been shielded by colleagues’ efforts to block access to records, delay their delivery, or conceal damning information with redactions. Nevertheless the indefatigable Horner has continued to pepper the agency with new requests from new angles almost every time he discovers a new hint of malfeasance revealed from previous requests.

    I would not be first hearing about this here. It would be the lead story for forty days and nights, on every news channel in America. Congressional hearings would be called. She would be raked over the coals, and a media anal exam would ensue forthwith! Her reputation would be smeared, and maligned, and not just by people in the opposing party, but by people in her own party as well.

    That is, if……. she were a Republican.

    If she were a Republican, hiring a lawyer would be seen as a clear sign that she’s most likely hiding something from the public, and could lead to speculation that she is probably hiding something. She would be asked questions like “do you still torture stray kittens?” And, “Isn’t it true that you had baby brains for breakfast?” Or, “How does it make you feel to be a baby brain eating, stray kitten torturing, loser, and universal tool?”
    ……And you know it!

      What I do know is you are easily aroused to anger and/or hyperbole. This is another non-story. You guys are running out of stuff to put here (oh, excuse me DAN is). If you’d continue the correct focus, it would look better at least. But you will not heed any advice from me that’s for sure (Dan neither). Your side is winning this public debate, if not won it already, and you are still a bunch of chicken-littles. Perhaps it just keeps you wing nuts from doing (more) real damage elsewhere (silver-lining thinking).

        Chicken Littles? Um…. Chicken Little said the sky is falling. We have been saying that the sky is not falling. I think you have that metaphor drawkcab.
