Virginia AG Probing Michael Mann For Fraud

eldavojohn writes “Republican Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has requested receipts and research documents relating to nearly half a million dollars in state taxpayer money used to conduct climate change research at the University of Virginia while under direction of Michael Mann. Originator of the famous 2001 IPCC Hockey Stick graph depicting rapid climate change, Mann appears to be a prime target for Cuccinelli — who has also requested hearings with EPA to contest the grounds of their carbon dioxide studies. Mann’s expenditures of taxpayer money may become problematic if Cuccinelli finds violations of Virginia’s Fraud Against Taxpayers Act. Cuccinelli has been active in pushing conservative views in the past, including an effort to remove the titillating mammary from the beloved Great Seal of Virginia. No end in sight for the politicizing of the science and research surrounding climate change.”
