Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says his investigation into the research activities of a former University of Virginia climate change scientist is about rooting out possible fraud and does not infringe upon academic freedom.

No. It’s not. The underlying justification for it, the oddly named “cliimategate” allegations, have been thoroughly discredited as by every impartial outfit that has looked into them.

It’s about suppressing research that doesn’t fit the wingnut worldview, that might justify governmental action, and that would require businesses to consider the public welfare.

It is, in short, about protecting the privileged.
