Pruitt Had Aide and Donors Find His Wife a Job
June 13, 2018 at 8:52 am EDT
By Taegan Goddard


EPA chief Scott Pruitt “last year had a top aide help contact Republican donors who might offer his wife a job, eventually securing her a position at a conservative political group that has backed him for years,” the Washington Post reports.

“The job hunt included Pruitt’s approaching wealthy party supporters and conservative figures with ties to the Trump administration. The individuals said he enlisted Samantha Dravis, then serving as associate administrator for the EPA’s Office of Policy, to line up work for his wife.”

1. Old fashioned graft.

Does she actually have to work? Like come into the office and sit there and do stuff?

3. Only if

you can't find an illegal immigrant to do it on the cheap.

I mean, we are talking patriotic conservatives here.

4. I can only assume this woman has never worked

a day in her life. It should not be that difficult to find employment unless the only thing on her resume is being Pruitt's wife.

5. Can cabinet members be impeached?

Are Democrats in Congress demanding that Pruitt be fired?

6. surprised he didn't just name her an 'executive secretary' and pay her

about $200,000 on the EPA payroll.

Maybe that one might be a bit too far even for Pruitt?

7. Can't she find her own damn job?

Even when I was a teenager I found my summer jobs all by myself.
