The elimination of fraud, waste and abuse is often touted as the solution to budget woes in government. I wonder how much it will cost Virginia’s taxpayers to have the University of Virginia collect the documents that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II is demanding to investigate research grants received by professor Michael Mann.

Four organizations have determined there was no fraud or malpractice in the climate studies conducted by Mr. Mann and others. Mr. Cuccinelli is supplying the waste and abuse.

The writer's husband is a member of the University of Virginia faculty but is not involved in this issue.
