WASHINGTON — Political appointees in the Environmental Protection Agency bypassed the agency's professional staff and a federal advisory panel last year to craft a rule on mercury emissions preferred by the industry and the White House, several longtime EPA officials say.The administration chose a process "that would support the conclusion they wanted to reach," said John Paul, a Republican environmental regulator from Ohio who co-chaired the EPA-appointed advisory panel and who says that its 21 months of work on mercury was ignored.

They're turning on him everywhere. Yes, America is Great. You can not lie and bully your way through 4 years in the White House and find enough people with so little integrity that they will back up your lies. You've found more than we would like but, not enough.
