ATR Launches New EPA-inspired website
Today Americans for Tax Reform launched http://epafakeidentitycreator.com/, a website which allows users to create EPA aliases, just like Lisa Jackson created the persona Richard Windsor.
In early 2012, an EPA whistleblower told the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) that Administrator Jackson was using the name alias Richard Windsor to hide communications she did not want to come to light.
After learning about the fake alias, CEI's Chris Horner filed suit with the EPA to access Jackson's Richard Windsor emails. The Department of Justice reluctantly agreed to produce 12,000 Richard Windsor emails in four 3,000 email tranches, the first of which was delivered on Monday, January 14. Although the EPA was ordered to deliver 3,000 emails, they only delivered 2,100, nearly all of which were news clippings and Google alerts.
Skirting or ignoring inquiries from Congressional Leaders, Energy and Commerce Chairman Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), Science, Space and Technology Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), and Environment and Public Works Ranking Member Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), the EPA’s reticence begs the question, “what are they hiding?”
