Politics Continued

The Senate Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs Committee voted 4-1 to recommend against Peter's reconfirmation. It goes to the full Senate tomorrow or the next day.

They also released edited versions of the transcripts from the witnesses they sub-poenaed. Scot's are so heavily edited you don't know what he said, beyond giving his name, rank, and serial number. Too bad - he's my buddy, he was the first to take me out on the big waves, and he's the one who instigated the ethics investigation. But there's enough in the other's testimony to make me think that this is going beyond dirty politics by the Democrats - that Peter's hands are dirty too, and that he'll be going down hard.
