Another Repube caught with his hand in the cookie jar
Tsk, tsk..these guys in the Repube party are just so damn smarmy. I dare say its the norm in this administration. The former head of the FDA, Dr. Lester M. Crawford is in "hot water" according to several media reports,one of which is the NYT. He is under criminal investigation by a Fed GJ for selling stocks. This excerpt from the NYT write up stating either Lester or his wife: "had sold shares in companies regulated by the agency when he was its deputy commissioner and acting commissioner. He has since joined a Washington lobbying firm, Policy Directions Inc. " Lester was only in charge for three brief months before he quit and became a lobbyist..Lester's claim to fame is that he helped way-lay, on numerous occasions a pharmaceutical company's request to make a morning after pill available over-the-counter. The Pill was known as "Plan-B" was manufactured by Barr Laboratory, and the FDA refused to rule on the company's request, sparking a lawsuit which is still ongoing. Since Lester is having problems on the civil as well as criminal front, his attorney has advised him to take the fifth no matter who he's talking to at this point...what a maroon.
