Passed on by DarkSyde at Daily Kos -- Rep. Brad Miller of North Carolina has posted a Daily Kos diary calling for Congressional hearings on the issue of the integrity of scientific research in the Bush Administration. He believes that Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, chair of the House Science Committee, may be amenable to such hearings. And he's asking a favor: Rep. Miller is looking for information about "instances of censoring, intimidating, blacklisting or whatever" concerning government scientists. Anyone fitting that description (not just random people with a gripe, but actual government scientists who feel that their integrity has been compromised for political reasons) should email Rep. Miller's legislative assistant Heather Parsons, at heather.parsons [at], or Dan Pearson of the Democratic staff of the Science Committee at dan.pearson [at]
