From the Annals of Hyperbolic Overreactions: You’ve probably heard the story of John Beale, an EPA employee who apparently managed to fool them into paying his salary for years without actually doing anything. Joseph Farah has heard of it and he thinks the entire agency should be shut down over it.
Beale was sentenced recently to two-and-a-half years in prison for the monumental scam he perpetrated for so long.
But that’s not justice.
Justice would be if the EPA management that allowed this theft to go on lost their jobs and their far more wasteful and rogue agency were abolished…
Isn’t it time to abolish the EPA?
Oh, of course. One employee scammed the agency and therefore, logically, we should allow coal plants to spew as much pollution into the air as they want, allow chemical companies to dump dioxin and other dangerous toxic waste into our rivers and lakes and stop cleaning up Superfund sites around the nation. Because that’s a perfectly reasonable reaction to what happened.
