Dr. Gretchen Goldman: Too much political influence at federal agencies

Federal scientists feel there's too much political influence at their agencies. That's according to a survey of 7,000 scientists at four federal agencies recently conducted by the Center for Science and Democracy. The center, which is part of the Union for Concerned Scientists, asked about the effectiveness of the agencies and whether or not the scientists felt political influence was damaging the integrity of their work. Dr. Gretchen Goldman is the lead analyst at the Center for Science and Democracy and the author of this report. She joins Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more.
