GOP leader: Obama targets nuclear regulator
WASHINGTON (AP) — Last December, Kristine Svinicki and other members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told Congress that the NRC's Democratic chairman was an intimidating bully whose actions could compromise the nation's nuclear safety.
The commissioners — two Democrats and two Republicans — said NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko was responsible for an increasingly tense and unsettled work environment, and that women at the NRC felt particularly threatened.
Svinicki, the only woman on the five-member panel, said she was so uncomfortable around Jaczko that she asked her chief of staff to "keep watch" over a private meeting with the chairman in her office.
