Cannonade Leveled at CIRM

The Center for Genetics-and-Society has launched a sweeping broadside at the California stem cell agency. We haven't had a chance to read it all yet but will have more on it later. It is sure to be an item of interest at the Oversight Committee meeting today. Below is a quick summary from the center. You can see all that the center has to say by going to its website. The center's charges allege:

"Inadequate conflict of interest rules for members of the ICOC and the three working groups established by Proposition 71.

"Unjustified exemptions of the three working groups from state rules on open meetings, conflict of interest, and public reporting.

"Troubling overlaps and conflicts among CIRM, the California Research and Cures Coalition, the debts of the "Yes on 71" campaign, ICOC Chair Robert Klein's business operations, and his personal finances."
