Democrats Try to Change Virginia Law to Thwart Investigation of Michael Mann

The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science (Independent Minds)
Two Demo State Senators are trying to change Virginia law in order to thwart a fraud investigation of Dr. Michael Mann of Climategate fame. Why am I not shocked? Global warming true believers never want you to peek behind the Wizard's curtain.

The Daily Progress reported:
Two Democratic state senators are proposing to change state law to thwart Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s efforts to investigate a former University of Virginia professor’s research on global warming...

The bill is in response to efforts by Cuccinelli, a Republican, to investigate possible fraud by former UVa professor Michael Mann in relation to five taxpayer-funded research grants between 1999 and 2005.

The senators, A. Donald McEachin and J. Chapman Petersen, will meet this morning with Del. David J. Toscano, D-Charlottesville, at the Capitol to discuss the legislation.
