Wetlander's Pick of the Posts Editorial: Breaking rules, hurting environment

Tampa Bay Times – April 15, 2013
Regulators who break the rules cannot be trusted with enforcing them. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection broke the rules protecting the state’s wetlands to benefit a well-connected landowner, then punished the one employee who challenged her bosses on it and tried to do her job. Gov. Rick Scott should remove DEP Secretary Herschel Vinyard Jr. and at least one of his deputy secretaries, because Floridians can no longer trust the agency to protect the environment and fairly enforce the rules. http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-breaking-rules-hurting-environment/2115291
