Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt — the target of over a dozen ongoing investigations into improper behavior — was having lunch at a restaurant yesterday with his security detail in tow when a woman holding her two-year-old approached him and told him that he was an awful protector of the environment and urged him to resign, "before your scandals push you out." Pruitt had nothing to say. He just got up and left.
EPA head Scott Pruitt was 3 tables away as I ate lunch with my child. I had to say something," Kristin Mink posted on Facebook with an accompanying video of her encounter with Pruitt.
Mink, who is a schoolteacher according to her Facebook profile, lists off multiple scandals Pruitt has been ensnared in since becoming EPA chief, including the rental of a Capitol Hill condo owned by the wife of an influential lobbyist.
"We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, someone who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all us, including our children," Mink said.
"I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out."
