Investors Business Daily reports that it now appears the EPA has been conducting "the people's business" like a covert operation . . . using aliases, private emails and other devices to avoid the full accountability that public service should necessarily entail. As the piece points out, if true, this violates the Federal Records Act, Freedom of Information Act, and the Presidential Records Act, along possibly with others.
What exactly is the agency doing that its leaders are so eager to hide from public scrutiny? House Republicans have sent a letter requesting more information, so maybe we'll find out.
