Klein and the Endorsement: CIRM Says No Comment

The California stem cell agency has no comment on the allegations that its chairman could be violating the law with his endorsement of a candidate for California lieutenant governor as detailed in the item below.

There are a number of interpretations of that sort of response. One is that the agency does not disagree with the assertion of illegality. Another is that they do disagree but for unknown reasons they choose not to share that belief with the public. Still another is that they do not know whether Klein's actions are illegal but they do not want to acknowledge their ignorance in public. And still another is that they do not want to engage in an exchange with an organization that sometimes has been held in low regard at CIRM. And yet one more is that they do not want to bring any more attention to the allegations by appearing to take them seriously. Or perhaps a combination of those considerations is the reason for the no comment response.

    Or perhaps it's something else entirely.
