Well folks, this little tidbit seems to be making both sides of the environmental-aisle say *#EPAfail.*
The man who claims he doesn’t know where over a billion dollars of investor’s money went in the now-bankrupt MF-Global just happens to be the financial adviser to the EPA. Yes, I am talking about Lisa Jackson’s Environmental Protection Agency. And for verification screen shot is below. Because of the smallness of the screen shot here is the link on the EPA website. At least until they take it down.
Even the environmentalists are on the same page as us “drill baby, drill” people:
“EPA relying on Wall Street for financial guidance is like the blind leading the blind,” said Jeff Ruch, president of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group based in Washington.
“In Abelow, you have a Wall Street executive who just presided over the disappearance of $1 billion in investor funds purporting to help guide federal infrastructure financing.”
EPA conveniently has not responded to questions. It’s of interest to note that both EPA Chair Lisa Jackson and Abelow were both at times former New Jersey governor John Corzine’s Chief of Staff who headed MF-Global.
For the record, Abelow is “deeply sorry” for the 2,500 people he is about to add to our unemployment rolls. Yep, he can say that because he is apparently part of the “1%” Occupy Wall Street has been complaining about, making several million dollars a year.
