Congressmen call for removal of NASA IG
Posted: Wed, Apr 4, 2007, 7:37 AM ET (1137 GMT)
NASA Key Democratic members of the House and Senate this week called for the Bush Administration to remove the inspector general of NASA after a report found evidence of improper behavior. The members, including the chairman of the space subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee and key members of the House Science and Technology Committee, said that NASA is "poorly served" by current inspector general Robert Cobb. An investigation by the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency found that Cobb fostered an "abusive" work environment and was too close to top NASA officials, including former administrator Sean O'Keefe. Current administrator Mike Griffin proposed that Cobb undergo additional training, but members of Congress found that option unacceptable. Members of Congress said they would consider holding hearings on the topic in the near future.
