Another Crony Puts Policy First (Ahead Of Science And Everything Else)

Report Says Interior Official Overrode Work of Scientists - New York Times:
WASHINGTON, March 28 — A top-ranking official overseeing the Fish and Wildlife Service at the Interior Department rode roughshod over agency scientists, and decisions made on her watch may not survive court challenges, investigators within the Interior Department have found.

Their report, sent to Congress this week by the department’s inspector general, does not accuse the official, Julie A. MacDonald, the deputy assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks, of any crime. But it does find that she violated federal rules when she sent internal agency documents to industry lobbyists.
So she just broke the rules, and not the laws, see? Hey! Is it just me or does it seem that lots of things that ought to be illegal are, somehow, not? I'm just sayin'...
