Posted on 10/07/2013 1:26:09 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Heather Zichal, President Obamas top energy and climate change adviser, is leaving the White House.
Zichal has worked behind the scenes and been a public face for President Obamas climate and energy platform, including controversial second-term plans to limit carbon emissions from power plants.
Prior to coming to the White House, Zichal was a policy director on President Obamas 2008 campaign. Before that, she was legislative director for ex-Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who is now secretary of State.
Her departure in the next few weeks will mark what has been an almost complete turnover of Obamas energy and environment team.
His first-term Energy and Interior secretaries have been replaced, and new Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy began her tenure in mid-July after a long confirmation battle.
Zichal is leaving as the focus of climate and energy policy shifts to the agencies themselves.....

Look for her to personally score multiple tens of millions of dollars by signing on as an consultant to "greenish" firms and using her influence to steer hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars to them.
Its all very algorean and smiled upon by the morons who vote for the liberal criminal syndicate.
Less guilty than I expected....
We can be virtually certain that whoever Obama appoints in her place will be even worse. His advisers have a real gift for finding these people.
Another “essential” federal employee we are better off without.
“Zichal has worked behind the scenes and been a public face for...”
Like most everything else "green", it's all a veneer....
That announcement was postponed until the day after the midterm elections of Nov. 2, 2010, apparently at the urging of the Department of Energy.
When she wasn’t a public face she was behind the scenes.
So many of his people were campaign people.....all organizers ,as himself, in one form or another.....which is another reason everything is so completely in disarray.....bunch of imbeciles running things.....
...everyone of them are all about destruction of this country.
That's wishful thinking. In 5 years they have implemented a huge portion of the progressive agenda.

I'd get her off with good behavior.
She will be going back to her job before being hired by THE FOREIGNER. Will you want fries with that burger.
ALL of Clown Prince nobama’s appointees should be in prison for the rest of their worthless existances. All should be investigated and brought to justice for their crimes against America, the Constitution, our freedoms and the American people. Criminals all.

What high school does she go to? I’m sure I could set up some kid in my town with her.
