WASHINGTON -- Julie MacDonald, a corrupt anti-environmental and anti-science political appointee in the Bush/Cheney Interior Department, has resigned.
I and other environmentalists have been after MacDonald for years due to her frequent overruling of agency scientists, and rewriting important federal environmental decisions across Arizona and the west to benefit industry. She has no training or education in natural sciences.
All greens should now call for a formal investigation and re-opening of MacDonald's unjustified decisions.
It's great that MacDonald is finally gone from Interior, but her dirty legacy should not remain.
MacDonald tours the Sonoran Desert's Algodones Dunes with off-road lobbyists, working on ending protection for endemic endangered species.
