EPA Official Who Targeted Oil & Gas Industry Resigns

Al Armendariz, a top EPA official in the South and Southwest region, has resigned amid the controversy surrounding the emergence of his videotaped comments from 2010 regarding his desire to use his authority with the EPA to "crucify" the oil and gas industry.

Energy in Depth has previously examined the agenda that was revealed by Armendariz's comments and actions both before and after joining the EPA, and has tracked all of the developments related to this story as well.  Another column from recently looked at the implications of allowing ideology-driven enforcement and regulation rather than demanding it be fact-driven.
