Just stop and think about this for a second:
On Monday, the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency played the role of lobbyist with National Mining Association’s executive committee, suggesting that they urge the president to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.
Next week, Pruitt will give the keynote address at the Oklahoma Republican Party’s annual fundraising gala.
Unlike his lobbying activities which may be construed as a conflict of interest, his appearance at the fundraiser as EPA Administrator, are a conflict of interest. Under the Hatch Act, Pruitt is allowed to take part in political activities, but he is not allowed to use his official title in connection with fundraising.
This is yet another example of corruption within the executive branch of the United States government.
Today is the 27th of April, 2017. It’s not a normal Thursday.
