Under fire for ethics scandals, EPA chief Pruitt resigns

Under fire for ethics scandals, EPA chief Pruitt resigns | 05 July 2018 | U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief [swamp rat] Scott Pruitt, who pleased President Donald Trump by rolling back environmental regulations but came under heavy fire in a series of ethics controversies, has resigned, Trump said on Thursday. Pruitt was under scrutiny for months over first-class travel at taxpayer expense, security spending, connections with lobbyists and industry groups, accusations of using his office for favors, a $43,000 soundproof phone booth for his office and his rental of a high-end condo from an energy lobbyist's wife. Numerous Democratic lawmakers and even some fellow Republicans had called for his resignation.
