An editorial in today's Washington Times highlights David Michaels -- President Obama's nominee to head the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).  As the Times describes Mr. Michaels, he is "a virulently anti-business
epidemiologist" who "is one the nation's foremost proponents of allowing junk science to be used in jackpot-justice lawsuits."

You might remember that a couple months ago I wrote about BPA,  an innovative chemical for plastics which radical environmentalists have unfairly targeted.

Well, it turns out David Michaels was also one of the zealots behind
the anti-BPA junk-science scare campaign which has cost Americans untold numbers of jobs -- and has lined the pockets of trial lawyers with millions of dollars from the pockets of hard-working parents who bought into his fear campaign.

The Senate must reject David Michaels' nomination to head OSHA.
