KY Abruptly Fires Mine Safety Prosecuter

The Lexington Herald-Leader has the story:

Tony Oppegard worked at MSHA during the Clinton Administration. Among other things, he was MSHA's original chief investigator in the notorious Martin County impoundment leak. He also led the agency's investigation into a major explosion at an aluminum processing plant in Louisiana. As a political (Schedule C) employee, he had to leave MSHA at end of the Administration. By all accounts, he's been a highly productive enforcer in the Ky. mine agency.
