Weekly Radio Pete

00:00 Domenici says he leans toward believing the investigative findings of the Santa Fe police and the FBI on the beating of a whistleblower from the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He says it will be inexcusable if the allegations that LANL was involved in the altercation are proven to be false. He says such incidences make it more difficult for the laboratory to continue making progress on resolving its problems.

11:04 Domenici says he does not believe the beaten whistleblower's accusations will be detrimental to the University of California's bid to retain the LANL management contract.

17:39 Domenici says that as chairman of the Senate Energy and Water Development Appropriations Subcommittee he is ready to gain subcommittee and committee passage of a bill to fund the national laboratories and New Mexico water projects next year. The FY2006 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bill will increase funding for the New Mexico laboratories.

Comments:
Wake up and smell the coffee, Pete D. It has already been attested to by one of the offenders that Tommy Hook was beaten because of his own behavior and it had nothing at all to do with LANL or his whistleblower status. He was at a strip joint in Santa Fe, mouthe off at someone and was beaten up for his mouth and running into a pedestrian. I am sick and tired of everyone being so ready and willing to jump down LANL's throat and I think LANL should sue him for slander!
 
"He (Senator Dominici) says it will be inexcusable if the allegations that LANL was involved in the altercation are proven to be false." Oops, I don't believe that's what the Senator said or at least meant to say.

Possibly a better way of saying what the Senator meant would be:
"If the allegations that LANL was involved prove to have been fabricated, that fabrication and those who created it cannot be excused because of the damage done."
 
Senator Dominici, you have single handedly caused this life-long republican to seriously consider changing my party affiliation to independent. Congratulations, Senator.
 
I did change my affiliation to independent.
