Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Friday said she wants EPA Chief Scott Pruitt gone for his recent move to get his wife hired.
“PRUITT BAD JUDGMENT HURTING @POTUS, GOTTA GO: Pruitt had aide, GOP donors help wife find job: report,” Ingraham tweeted, linking an article on GOP donors helping Pruitt’s wife find a job.
As reported by thehill.com
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt enlisted a top aide and Republican donors in an effort to help his wife find a job, according to a report in The Washington Post.
The Post reported Wednesday that Pruitt reached out to donors including Doug Deason, whose family company has extensive holdings in the oil and gas industries, in the effort to find work for his wife Marlyn.
The effort appeared to focus on getting Marlyn Pruitt a job in conservative political circles. Marlyn Pruitt temporarily worked as an independent contractor for the Judicial Crisis Network.
Leonard Leo, the executive director of the Federalist Society who helped arrange the EPA head's visit to Italy last year, referred her to the conservative group.
EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox referred the matter to Pruitt's outside attorney, Cleta Mitchell, who did not respond to the Post's requests for comment.
The media has been very nitpicky towards Pruitt. What are they afraid of?
