Corrupt regulators

Whoops!
Katherine Hart, who chairs the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board... failed to disclose her husband's ties to wastewater dischargers, and failed to recuse herself properly from board actions affecting his clients.
They married after she was appointed, but he was already in the business. Oh, and this is hysterical:
The couple also have a legal agreement to keep their finances separate, which, she said, ensures her board work is not influenced by his lobbying income.
Right.

Bottom Line: Fire her, nullify all actions that affected his clients, and fine her her salary from 2006 onwards. [Oh, and I'd say the same if they were dating; anyone track THAT bit of information?]
