EPA Awards Non-Existent Employee with Certificate for Ethical Behavior

It doesn’t take much to win an award from the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, you don’t even have to exist. Take, for example, Richard Windsor, the email alias of former EPA head Lisa Jackson. According to Eliana Johnson of National Review, Windsor was considered a certified scholar of ethical behavior by the EPA. Johnson reports: “The agency also documented the nonexistent Windsor’s completion of training courses in the management of e-mail records, cyber-security awareness, and what appears to be a counter-terror initiative that urges federal employees to report suspicious activity.”

How did this happen? According to Chris Horner of the Competitive Enterprise Institution, the EPA likely gave training requirements to anybody with an active email address, which means that Jackson probably signed into her alias account to take online courses.

The agency Records Officer signed off on the awards.
