This time at the EPA.
President Barack Obama’s pick for the No. 2 post at the Environmental Protection Agency is removing himself from consideration.
Jon Cannon, a professor of environmental law at the University of Virginia, says he is withdrawing as the nominee for deputy EPA administrator because of scrutiny surrounding the America’s Clean Water Foundation. Cannon once served on the now-defunct organization’s board of directors.
The EPA’s inspector general’s concluded in 2007 that the foundation mismanaged $25 million in EPA grants.
