Former EPA Head Hired by Apple

To head up company's environmental initiatives


Former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson has been hired by Apple to head up the company's environmental initiatives.

Jackson left the EPA in February while at the center of an email scandal that sparked internal agency and congressional investigations.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported last year that Jackson was using the alias email account "Richard Windsor" to conduct official business, which drew criticisms that she was attempting to dodge public oversight. It was later revealed that she had used the account to correspond with environmental activists.
