EPA: Will Lisa Jackson Stay or Go if Obama Wins Tuesday?

Nov 2, 2012
(Greenwire)

As head of one of the government's most politically divisive agencies, U.S. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has seen her photo splashed across campaign billboards and television spots as an enemy to everyone from coal miners to Rust Belt manufacturers.

And she has visited Capitol Hill so frequently to defend EPA's actions before Republican-led House committees that Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) suggested early on that she get her own parking space.

So with all that Jackson's gone through in President Obama's first term, will she stay if he is re-elected? It's anybody's guess right now.
