State Senator holds committee hearing exposing state Department of Ecology's abuse of citizens and local government sovereignty

Last Thursday, Sen. Pam Roach held a committee hearing which exposed the state Department of Ecology's abuse of property owners' rights and local government sovereignty.


Of particular interest are recently found e-mails showing employees of the state Department of Ecology referring to property owners as "rabble" in private e-mail conversations.

The public records request also reveals e-mails from the director of the department (Ted Sturdevant) referring to science that discredited his agency's position as "right-wing propaganda bullshit", and Republican senators who disagreed with his agency's policy "fuckers".

Looks like another instance where government workers have nothing but contempt for the people they are supposed to be working for.
