Vice President Dick Cheney has formally refused to turn over documents relating to the development of the Bush administration’s energy plan to the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress. The GAO may now take the White House to court over the issue. Democrats and enviros believe the energy plan was tailor-made for energy executives who held closed-door meetings with Cheney’s Energy Task Force. Cheney aide Mary Matalin pooh-poohed any such criticism, saying the task force “produced a balanced, comprehensive, environmentally friendly energy policy in remarkably short time.”
