Pruitt has resigned.
From the moment Scott Pruitt took over as head of the EPA, he was a marked man. He was a “climate denier.” That made him worse than a child molester. Employees who were paid to do nothing began resigning in droves as he streamlined the department.
Mr. Pruitt is the subject of at least 13 federal investigations, and a government watchdog agency concluded that he had broken the law with his purchase of a $43,000 secure telephone booth. He was also under investigation for his 2017 lease of a bedroom in a condominium linked to a Canadian energy company’s powerful Washington lobbying firm, and for accusations that he demoted or sidelined E.P.A. employees who questioned his actions.
DIFFERENT PARTY, DIFFERENT RULES.
He has succumbed to the harassment and resigned.
Andrew Wheeler Replaces Pruitt, Media Attacks: Coal Lobbyist, ‘Scorched Earth Agenda’
THIS PROVES THEY WILL ATTACK ANYONE IN TRUMP’S GOVERNMENT.
The New York Times said Wheeler — his critics fear — may do a better job than Pruitt.
“Unlike Mr. Pruitt — who had come to Washington as an outsider and aspiring politician, only to get caught up in a swirl of controversy over his costly first-class travel and security spending — Mr. Wheeler is viewed as a consummate Washington insider who avoids the limelight and has spent years effectively navigating the rules,” the Times reported.
