Bush administration Sued over Pesticides

In yet another stunning (though hardly surprising) example of our government’s
favor of shady deals for lobbyists over concern for it’s citizen’s health (as well as yet more proof that the E.P.A is basically the White House’s hand puppet), several groups have turned to SUING over the allowance of known toxic pesticides.

    Environmental and farmworker advocates have sued the Bush administration for allowing the continued use of four pesticides, saying the government brushed aside its own findings that the chemicals are dangerous to workers, children and wildlife.

    The suit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, challenged the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision in 2006 to reauthorize the four pesticides sprayed on fruit and vegetable fields in California.
