Moran weighs in on Cuccinelli subpoena

Rosalind Helderman

We haven't heard from a lot from Democratic politicians on the topic of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's global warming subpoena to the University of Virginia, but perhaps that's about the change.

On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D) sent Cuccinelli a particularly blistering letter about Cuccinelli's attempt to get documents related to the work of climate scientist Michael Mann, a former U-Va. professor.

"History will neither reflect kindly on those who reject science in the pursuit of short-term economic and political gain, nor will it look kindly on your attempt to tarnish the good name of Professor Michael Mann," he wrote.

The so called climate scientist is a liar as detailed in his emails he should be investigated and while the attorney general is at it Moran's defense dept. contractor donation list should be submitted and how about his brother denouncing his remarks towards Jews? Bunch of lying thieves.

Couldn't the Dems find a better politician to be throwing stones?:
At least KC isn’t motivated purely by personal financial greed:

The Washington Post:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A46958-2002Jul9
““It seems to us there can be no favorable interpretation of Mr. Moran's behavior, even if you accept his denial of any connection between his personal finances and his embrace of the interests of those who offer him bailouts. At a minimum he has allowed his attempts to wriggle out of his financial problems to correspond with his positions on public policy in a way that suggests impropriety.”

The New York Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2002/08/09/us/bankruptcy-bill-opponents-criticize-loan.html
“In an effort to block a bill sought by credit card companies to overhaul the nation's bankruptcy laws, opponents are pressing for an investigation into the relationship between a major credit card issuer and an important House sponsor who received a $447,500 loan from the company on what appeared to be highly favorable terms.”
