In Passing

But did ‘‘Richard Windsor’’ quit, too?


Washington Examiner:

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson has decided to resign her post as top environmental regulator, a move that comes as Congress applies pressure on her for complicating oversight of the EPA by using at least one secondary email address under an alias.
...
Lawmakers and the EPA inspector general wonder if Jackson used a private email account created under an alias to develop... [EPA] ...policies in a way that would be invisible to watchdogs and congressional oversight.
...
Jackson used a private email under the alias ‘‘Richard Windsor’’ to correspond with EPA colleagues...

Investors Business Daily:  Is The EPA’s Lisa Jackson Trying To Dodge A Federal Probe?
Maybe it's a coincidence that Jackson... resigned only days after the Justice Department agreed to hand over 12,000 emails from Jackson's "Richard Windsor" account.
Coincidence.  Yeah, that’s it!
