NO JOKE: Feds Give Congress Blank Documents to 'Explain' Lab Data Manipulation
By Ethan Barton | The Daily Caller
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) officials left Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert perplexed and frustrated when they gave him documents to explain years of manipulation that were blank other than a “only for committee use” tag.
“Are we supposed to play tic-tac-toe on this?” Gohmert asked Tuesday, while waving one of the documents during a hearing of the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on the data manipulation.
The USGS lab where two chemists skewed data for nearly two decades was finally closed in March 2016.
