Jeff Flake’s plan to politicize the National Science Foundation - The Washington Post

It's almost as if Jeff Flake is saying, "As a politician, I want to make there that there is not -- and never will be -- any attempt to apply evaluation of evidence, sound reasoning and logic, or other scientific principles, to the job I do.
