Watchdog Wants EPA Chief’s Use of Alias E-Mail Probed

The allegation about alias e-mail accounts at the agency was first made by Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a Washington-based group that promotes smaller government and has criticized EPA regulations.

Horner said he uncovered EPA administrators’ use of alias accounts while doing research for his book, “The Liberal War on Transparency.” Writing on National Review Online on Nov. 12, he said “two former fairly senior EPA officials” told him after the book’s publication that Jackson also used e-mail aliases, including Richard Windsor. He didn’t name the former officials.
