    Letter: Congressional Oversight, Not a Fishing Expedition

    In your “Gone Fishing” editorial published Oct. 17 [page 18], I was surprised to read some of the assertions you made in regards to the letter from Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and vice chairman of the Science, Space and Technology space and aeronautics subcommittee, to NASA Inspector General Paul Martin. In Chairman Smith’s letter, he called for a nonpartisan investigation surrounding concerns that were reported by the most senior career civil servants within the agency, who stated that political appointees of President Barack Obama’s administration were pursuing “Democratic political goals, not national goals.”
