Fake CIA agent helped craft sweeping environmental rules while at EPA
Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, March 19, 2014 | Jim McElhatton

A former high-ranking EPA staffer convicted of stealing nearly $900,000 by pretending to be a CIA spy had virtually no experience, got his job with help from a college buddy, and went on to play a key role in sweeping environmental regulations, according to a report Senate Republicans released Wednesday.

Those regulations remain in place despite John C. Beale’s lack of environmental expertise, Republican investigators said, adding that they want the Environmental Protection Agency to review the work in which Beale was involved during his 24-year tenure.

The report said Beale led an “itinerant life” as a police officer and a physical therapist in California before heading to Princeton University in the 1970s. It was at Princeton, the report said, where Beale befriended Robert Brenner, who later would become the EPA’s deputy assistant administrator.

"Beale was sentenced to 2 years in prison in December after admitting that he regularly took months off at a time while being paid — tricking colleagues and superiors for years into thinking that he was working for the CIA. All the while, he earned a paycheck and hefty bonuses."

"At his sentencing hearing, Beale told the judge that shame had become his “constant companion.”"

Some how I cannot quite believe the part about shame. It has become apparent you cannot shame a ComDem.

But this is just another example of why it IS TIME to DownSize DC!

Mr. Beale has interesting friends. According to this article from december 2013:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2524730/John-C-Beale-climate-change-expert-defrauded-EPA-900K-claiming-CIA-agent.html

“Beale is married to Nancy Kete, who President Barack Obama appointed the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling. She is currently managing director of the Rockefeller Foundation.”

Owned by a foreign spy agency is more like it.

In war what are the top civilian targets to destroy?

Manufacturing followed by energy production.

That fact he is also a crook too is a red flag that he is an agent of a foreign intelligence service. They target the morally corrupt, self-interested with a grudge and bad habits.

“Republican investigators”

Sure. Mostly a joke. Endless hearings, nothing will come of it. No rules will be overturned. Nothing of consequence will change.

Congress abrogates broad power to these agencies and then acts surprised and indignant when the regulations and employees run wild. Makes for great campaign speeches about the need to “rein in or even abolish rogue agencies”, but when the time comes, all they do is vote to increase the budgets every year.

200K a year. Nice cover. 900K is a lot of “months at a time.”

Question: is it better to pay an EPA bureaucrat for doing something, or for doing nothing?

You are correct in your assumption. There is no shame for a liberal. In their world any means justifies the end whether it is using fake credentials to land influential jobs or fake science to promote political ideology.

Thanks Texas Fossil.
A former high-ranking EPA staffer convicted of stealing nearly $900,000 by pretending to be a CIA spy had virtually no experience, got his job with help from a college buddy, and went on to play a key role in sweeping environmental regulations... Those regulations remain in place despite John C. Beale’s lack of environmental expertise... during his 24-year tenure.
