Gov knew of CARB scandal on Dec. 18, 2008


Article from the San Diago Union-Tribune by Chris Reed.  Click the "FULL STORY" Button to read the entire story and view comments.

Yesterday's Capitol Weekly story outlining the governor's role this month in pressuring the state air board to delay implementation of controversial air board rules on diesel emissions is only the latest example of the Sacamento-based media's peddling of a highly misleading narrative. The story that's still not being told is that the governor's office was informed a year ago today that the lead scientist on the study used to justify the costly, sweeping rules had lied about his credentials. The governor's office called for a thorough probe. But nothing happened for 11 months, despite five Union-Tribune editorials, four print columns and many blog items on the scandal that I wrote, many adding new details. Why? The governor's office hoped the scandal would go away. The Sacramento media didn't care. The air board hoped the scandal would go away. Only when an air board member, Dr. John Telles, got wind of the scandal this fall did the gov, the media and the air board stop pretending this wasn't a real scandal.
