george76 ~: “(from the article) Since spring, Broun has been attempting without success to get the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration travel records for top executives, including Administrator Jane Lubchenco and Eric Schwaab, her choice to head the National Marine Fisheries Service.
In his third letter, dated Nov. 28, seeking travel records, Broun wrote to Lubchenco that this level of recalcitrance mocks the notion of transpaency.
Interesting enough .. Jane Lubchenco (Lubchenko)has TODAY announced her retirement from NOAA for Febuary/13 to return to “academia” and to return to be with family and friends.
She has contributed to the demize of the fisheries industry in the Northeast and South by imposing “Catch Shares” and ‘sustainable fisheries’,despite Congressional directive that she should not, and funding for ‘catch share progarm’ was eliminated.
Furthermore , according to Congressional testimony with Senator Nelson ( Florida) , NOAA under Lubchenco closed bottom fishery for red snapper in the South , without even conducting any study .
Sustainable fishery is another term for “agenda 21” .
Bankruptcy of these fisheries occurred when ‘Catch Shares’ were sold to international investment companies and non-profit organizations (ie: Pew) , after bankrupting Northeast fisheries by shortening the season , and limiting the number of the catch.
Her predecessor director was caught mis-using fines (imposed in kangaroo courts ) and was terminated , but Lubchenco kept him on as an advisor/consultant.
It seems that when you lay down with dogs ,.. you get fleas!
Write the “law.”
Enforce the law.
Adjudicate the law.
It is the classic definition of tyranny.
Since Eric the Red Holder will never prosecute federal bureaucrats for corruption, the States should fill the void.
