Nature report on researcher fraud case–Where’s Grassley on EPA unethical human experiments?

Here’a a case of an HIV vaccine researcher at Iowa State who switched samples and made false reports in research funded by NIH–he gets 57 months and a 7 million dollar fine (how the hell is he going to pay that?).

The penalty was the result of Senator Grassley’s advocacy but it was just a Lincoln Law type fraud–NIH funding fraud–my question would be why no Senate or Congressional outrage, particularly from the physicians in Congress about EPA human exposure experiments involved what EPA alleges are pollutants that are deadly, toxic and carcinogenic?
