Spanish Vuelta champion Christopher Horner will remain in the hospital until next week at least following Friday's training accident in northern Italy.
Spanish Vuelta champion Christopher Horner has become the first American to sign for Italian cycling team Lampre-Merida.
Lisa P. Jackson, the former EPA chief who used both secondary and private email accounts to conduct government business, said she never intended to violate open-records laws and said only those who want to "theorize that there is a hidden agenda" would see her actions negatively.
Richard Windsor never existed at the EPA, but the agency awarded the fictional staffer’s email account certificates proving he had mastered all of the agency’s technology training — including declaring him a “scholar of ethical behavior,” according to documents disclosed late last week.
The researcher who exposed former EPA chief Lisa P. Jackson's private email account is now taking aim at her potential successor — and is expanding the inquiry into the world of mobile phone text messages, which are shaping up as the next frontier in open-records legal battles.
A study has found that more federal court complaints were filed during the first term of the Obama administration to force the government to abide by the Freedom of Information Act than were filed against the administration of President George W. Bush in his second term.
The Environmental Protection Agency this week acknowledged that Administrator Lisa P. Jackson has a second official email that she uses for important communications, but said it's a standard practice and doesn't shield her from open-records requests.
A House committee has launched an investigation into whether EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used an email alias to try to hide correspondence from open-government requests and her agency's own internal watchdog — something that Republican lawmakers said could run afoul of the law.
A former University of Virginia professor who has drawn the ire of climate change skeptics is entering the legal fray over a conservative group's pursuit of his emails and documents related to his work.
He said the open-records process has a fundamental flaw: It relies on government employees to police themselves, and requests for documents usually involve those who have the most to hide.
"The failure to search for text or other instant messages, in systems provided by the taxpayer specifically for work-related correspondence, is endemic to appointees and career bureaucrats alike," Mr. Horner said.
