PA-Gov: The Email That Caused Quigley’s Ouster
No good can come of an email that begins with such a sentence.
Turns out that’s how former DEP Secretary John Quigley began the message that ultimately led to his resignation.
The email was released by Marie Cusick of WITF and StateImpactPA. It provides some context into the conflict that led to the episode and why environmentalists are still upset about Quigley’s ouster.
You can view the message, complete with “Chapter 78” subject heading, along with the date/time it was sent here.
The full text is also included below (NSFW):
I’ve slept on this but can no longer hold back.
Where the fuck were you people yesterday? The House and Senate hold Russian show trials on vital environmental issues and there’s no pushback at all from the environmental community? Nobody bothering to insert themselves in the news cycle?
Is there no penalty for D apostasy, at least, or shaming of the gas-shilling Rs? Apparently so.
Do some of you think that staying on your moratorium hobby horse does anything to advance the cause of protecting the environment and public health?
Do you really think the Governor will veto this shit with NO support?
The environmental community is without influence in Harrisburg. What will you do about it?
