No Letup in Calls for Pruitt’s Ouster at EPA

One congressman who sits with Oklahoma U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas on a House committee is demanding that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt be ousted.

Rep. Don Beyer, a Democrat from Virginia made it clear in an email recently sent to Newsweek.

“Scott Pruitt is now surrounded by a historic level of scandal. This is what happens when Congress drops its oversight responsibilities over the administration of a president who shows historic contempt for ethics and norms. Every day that Pruitt stays on the job is an embarrassment to the country,” Representative Don Beyer said to Newsweek via email.

Beyer is the vice ranking member of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, and the ranking member of its Subcommittee on Oversight. He was one of the first congressmen to officially call for Pruitt’s ousting last month.

On the other side of the aisle and holding the title of vice-chairman of the committee is Oklahoma Rep. Lucas.
