CABINET DEPARTMENTS: Political travel alleged

Critics say Bush appointees visiting contested states to aid president


WASHINGTON -- Interior Secretary Gale Norton traveled to Minnesota on Oct. 13, accepting a donation of five power generators to aid Florida hurricane victims. Two days earlier, in rural Wisconsin, she held a roundtable discussion with business leaders.

This past Tuesday she flew down to Florida the day before an official event to campaign alongside Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mel Martinez.

Like most members of President Bush's Cabinet, Norton has hit the road this fall. She's advertising the president's vision of conservation and partnership in states being contested on Nov. 2.

Norton is not alone among Interior Department appointees. Other top federal land managers have focused travel to the nation's political battlegrounds to distribute grant money, hand out awards and spotlight the president's achievements.

They have been frequent visitors to the swing states of Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Wisconsin, according to a review of travel schedules, department news releases, speeches, and media reports.

1. Having Norton as a representative . . .
. . . is like having Billy Carter as a brother. As far as I'm concerned, they should send her to EVERY STATE.

3. I'll be so glad to see her out of a job.
She was Attn Gen. here in Colorado - argued for Amendment 2 - the anti-gay Hate State amendment. She even brought in nutjob Paul Cameron to testify for the state.
