The Senate Majority Project - a group dedicated to ending the current GOP majority - is speculating that our own Senator Gordon Smith could be in the running for Secretary of the Interior. (Gale Norton resigned today amid questions related to the Jack Abramoff scandal.)
From the Senate Majority blog:
Gordon Smith: Smith is from Oregon and serves on the Public Lands and Water and Power subcommittees. More moderate on environmental issues than the controversial Norton. His concern for the environment seems to stop at the Beltway as his family’s company is one of the worst polluters in Oregon. The company was slapped with the second largest environmental fine in state history and Oregon taxpayers had to pay $800,000 to clean up environmental damage caused by Smith’s company.
