    Bush official resigns ahead of oversight hearing.

    “An Interior Department official accused of pressuring government scientists to make their research fit her policy goals has resigned.” Julie MacDonald, deputy assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks, submitted her resignation letter “a week before a House congressional oversight committee was to hold a hearing on accusations that she violated the Endangered Species Act, censored science and mistreated staff of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.”

    UPDATE: Josh Marshall highlights some other amusing memories from MacDonald’s tenure.
