This answers a lot of questions in my part of the country. Thanks Eduardo. (Probably a

"Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne, who was asked about the reports earlier in the day before they were given to him and congressional offices, said the investigation was prompted by a 2006 phone call from employee who said there were ethical lapses in the Denver office."

"I look forward to having the opportunity to review the inspector general's findings so we can take the appropriate actions," Kempthorne said."

And here we are, kempthorne - the man who wants to help gut the Endangered Species Act.

TY, Eduardo.
