Double Bind Attack on EPA Secretary Jackson

According to a report at ClimateProgress Republicans have criticized the outgoing secretary of the EPA for NOT using government resources for private purposes.

Republicans and conservatives also latched on to one incident in which Jackson asked Allison Taylor — a personal friend, who was also a lobbyist for the sustainable energy and technology firm Siemens — to contact Jackson at her personal account


Jackson said that if the email chain is read in its entirety, it’s clear that Taylor is a personal friend as well as a lobbyist, that … Jackson suggested her home email so that they could carry on their personal, non-agency-related correspondence in a more appropriate venue.

I would seem that on the dominant theory of government among Republicans, the only legal action is to not take on any public sector employment at all, unless you are covered by IOKIYAR.
