House Committee Calls for GAO Review of NASA Export Control Compliance
Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) is calling for the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to review NASA's export control policies. Broun chairs the House Science, Space and Technology Committee's Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight.
Broun's letter to GAO refers to "allegations that NASA centers have allowed unapproved individuals access to sensitive technologies," but does not specify who or what is involved other than referencing "an ongoing investigation at Ames Research Center" that Broun asks to be included in the review.
Broun, a medical doctor, stirred controversy recently by proclaiming that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang Theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell" according to Politico. He is unopposed for reelection.
