Political bias at the EPA

Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Conservative Enterprise Institute.
Combine this with the IRS targeting of tea party groups, and it looks like a systemic problem.  At some point, it doesn't matter whether the White House ordered officials at various government agencies to break the law and target their enemies; the officials at those agencies know what to do without being told.  They can help and hinder in ways both small and large.  And over time, when it is consistent, it adds up.
