    You know, when a (R) does something wrong, most often you see the other (R) condemning them... not the case with (D)'s. It seems whatever their 'guys' do, is ok with them.

    In this case, transparency is very much important, because a government that is hiding what it is doing is a danger to it's citizens. And it is true that these extra email accounts exist, as they were mentioned in a EPA document.

    Oh please. The article, from a right leaning rag, claims the EPA has been passing information around in a secret email account. The congressman asking questions is a Tea Party member. I can already see another made up scandal starting to form. The EPA is an agency the right wing would love to get rid of.

    Oh, well, then. If the member of Congress is also a "Tea Party" person, that's proof positive that there's a conspiracy.

    Another that will do anything to defend their 'guy'.. To restate: "non-public email accounts for EPA administrators, the existence of which accounts Plaintiff discovered in an Agency document obtained under a previous [Freedom of Information Act] request"

    What proof do you have that this story is true? There have been so many stories that ended up being untrue and baseless. So far it's just speculation, but I welcome yet another hearing that costs the tax payers more money. If something comes of this story then I will be the first to say I was wrong, but the GOP keeps accusing the Obama administration of wrong doing and nothing comes of these accusations.

    People? or Liberals? See, you think that you can post something like this and tell me what, or how I should characterize a political figure that I am posting about, while at the same time telling me my message should conform to your standard so as not to offend you or other libs? Wow, that takes some large set.....

    Wait a minute here....Now there is supposed to be conclusive proof of wrongdoing, in this case the email accounts that fly under the wire of their own agency watchdog, without the benefit of being allowed to see these email accounts? Are you joking here?

    Hey, I have an idea, lets not try murder cases anymore either, they can be expensive....What kind of crapola is that?

    If something comes of this story then I will be the first to say I was wrong, but the GOP keeps accusing the Obama administration of wrong doing and nothing comes of these accusations.
    Maybe if the Obama crime organization would cease thwarting our laws, and constitution they wouldn't raise these suspicions...But if I read you right, and I think I do, because you are quite clear in a number of posts in this thread, that is your position seems to be that oversight is only a good thing when it is to oversee republicans.

    No. I most often see excuses being made, attention being misdirected, or the integrity of the investigators being attacked -- "If this was one of your guys, you wouldn't be doing this!"

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Maddening isn't it? Wrong is wrong, and when an oversight committee is being thwarted in their requests on behalf of the people, all because of party affiliation is jaw dropping, and if allowed to succeed then we have another big problem to add to the rest of the problems this administration is cooking.

    The existence of a private e-mail account is not proof that it was used for government business or to thwart transparency.

    A request for all information related to a private e-mail account is not proof that it was used for government business or to thwart transparency.

    A request that the use of a private e-mail account be investigated is not proof it was used for government business or to thwart transparency.

    You do not have proof this private e-mail account was used for government business or to thwart transparency.



    Apparently you are comfortable throwing accusations around, making reference to Chicago politics, and painting "these progressives" with a broad brush even before there's any actual proof of wrong-doing.

    Typical behavior of the species Americanus Politica Trucidabunt.
