Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) has been investigating “why FDA officials approved the sale of the antibiotic Ketek even after the government learned safety tests on the drug had been forged.” Yesterday federal health officials refused to give the senator information on the drug. “I smell a cover-up,” said Grassley.
Ah Senator, I don’t think they’re covering up anything. I think they’re just too busy figuring out an excuse to not approve the Plan B drug (despite having been proven safe). So they’re spending all their time on that, and just haven’t had time to get to your request.
