Today was supposed to be the day of the first hearing by the Commission on Appointments on the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. An interesting nominee who, on one hand, says what she does is what is right and she doesn’t care about being confirmed, and on the other has been doing media rounds and social media rounds and visiting legislators for purposes of... confirmation!Read more ...
