Is Van Jones in Trouble?

Van Jones, the Oakland activist and environmentalist who became President Obama’s green jobs advisor, has got a new problem – and this one looks kind of serious. Conservative bloggers have unearthed a 2004 petition that Jones signed, demanding an official investigation into the US government’s alleged complicity in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The White House immediately put out a statement from Jones, denying that he’s a 9-11 Truther, and implying that he hadn’t read the petition before signing it.
