Today, it’s the barriers around the bogus Financial Crisis Commission.

The Washington Examiner editorial board reports:

When Congress created the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission in 2009, it tasked the group with digging into the origins of the global economic meltdown that began in 2008.

The 10-member commission is scheduled to issue a report in December 2010. In the meantime, the panel appears determined to shed no light on itself. According to the New York Times, FCIC Chairman Phil Angelides, the former California state treasurer, has complained that his panel’s $8 million, taxpayer-funded budget is inadequate, but he refuses to provide this newspaper with a list of staff members, how much they are paid or their job descriptions. He won’t even cough up a copy of the FCIC ethics policy he claimed to have instituted to avoid conflicts of interest among his staff members. Angelides’ attitude is especially puzzling considering that his appointment was approved by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who famously promised “the most open, the most honest, the most ethical Congress in history.”

This lack of transparency increases public confusion and skepticism about the value of congressional commissions in general and of the FCIC in particular…
