Celebrate Earth Day ? Fire Pruitt
By Mike Hersh, PDA Communications Director for Donna, Mike F., Judy, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Amos—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is working with Friends of the Earth and other allies on an important petition:
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is corrupt. His words and actions prove that he is strongly opposed to civil rights and environmental justice. He has even gone as far as actively working to tear apart our environmental protections. Currently, Pruitt is plagued by scandal for his many disreputable actions—bringing his top aides on a lavish trip to Morocco, spending $120,000 on a trip to Rome, hiring 20 personal bodyguards, and helping to secure massive raises for two favorite aides—all of these by misusing taxpayer dollars and funds meant to better the environment.
Congress could help kick Pruitt out of the EPA by publicly demanding his removal. But we need your help to push them to act. Sign the petition and join us in telling Congress to act in Americans’ best interest and fire Scott Pruitt. He faces growing criticism on all sides, including members of his own party. The White House is reportedly frustrated with him.
Even Republicans like Chris Christie think he’s on his way out. One of Pruitt’s closest aides resigned amidst the scandals, clearly demonstrating that his camp feels the pressure. But so far, Congress hasn’t done enough to push for Pruitt to be fired. Tell Congress to fire Scott Pruitt.
