A year ago North Carolina’s Republican-controlled General Assembly launched an investigation into a permit issued by Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper’s Dept. of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to allow the Atlantic Coast Pipeline project to get built (see NC Republicans Hounding Dem Gov for Approving Atlantic Coast Pipe). We said at the time this situation has made for some strange bedfellows–with rabid Democrat anti-fossil fuelers supporting the Republican investigation. That investigation recently concluded and a report was issued claiming Cooper and his administration are guilty of nefarious dealings in issuing the permit.
