EPA chief Pruitt resigns under a cloud of ethics scandals

San Francisco Chronicle

Scott Pruitt, President Trump’s administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, resigned after facing months of allegations over legal and ethical violations... “If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say Trump’s administration is probably thrilled to have Wheeler,” said Sejal Choksi-Chugh, executive director of San Francisco Baykeeper, a nonprofit that fights pollution in the bay and other water bodies.
