WASHINGTON — A high-ranking Interior Department official tainted nearly every decision made on the protection of endangered species over five years, a new inspector general report finds, concluding she exerted improper political interference on many more rulings than previously thought.
Julie MacDonald, a former deputy assistant secretary overseeing the Fish and Wildlife Service, did pervasive harm to the department’s morale and integrity and may have risked the well-being of species with her agenda, Interior Inspector General Earl Devaney said in his report out Monday.
This is just another example of how the Bush-Cheney people contaminated every part of the US Gov’t. Maybe we can help people remember if they should forget sometime in the future. Remember how we thought it could not get any worse when that clown Watts was at Interior? Well, for the last 8 years it did get worse.
