Ethics Scandals Surround EPA Administrator Pruitt, Call for Firing

(Beyond Pesticides, April 16, 2018) Ethics scandals pile up regarding Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt’s failure to do his job, leading to the inevitable conclusion that he must go.

Tell Congress and the President to Dump Pruitt.

On the ethics side, there are:

All of these ethics issues are in addition to Pruitt’s attacks on the environment he is charged with protecting:

Letter to Congress (Reps and Senators) and the President:

Please tell President Trump to fire Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt. His ethical choices reflect poorly on the administration and the country. They include:

  • A unique too-good-to-be-true housing deal at a rental owned by an industry lobbyist;
  • High-priced first class airfare for Pruitt and his personal security detail;
  • Questionable claims of a need for expensive personal security measures;
  • Reassigning or demoting EPA employees who question him;
  • Using “special hires” to bring on political appointees; and
  • Failing to investigate civil rights complaints.

Furthermore, he is failing to do his job, attacking rather than protecting the environment through actions like:

  • Reversing a ban on chlorpyrifos;
  • Delaying rules designed to protect farmworker children;
  • Eliminating from EPA advisory boards those scientists who have received EPA grants; and
  • Attempting to slash EPA’s staff in half.

Tell Congress and the President to Dump Pruitt.
