    Questions of ethics and morality aside, corruption is quantifiable. And Pruitt is off the charts.

    Unfortunately, that’s just the kind of irresponsibility that the current administration finds “disruptive”. And I guess that’s true, if the previous status quo was sound judgement and possession of a spine, Pruitt is a disruptor indeed.

  • The knives are out. And this guy is very swampy. He’s a perfect poster boy for 2018 Dems, who probably are very happy if he stays.
