You might be surprised to know that there were dozens and dozens of EPA scandals during the Obama administration. While the left would like you to think Scott Pruitt is a rarity, the EPA’s Gina McCarthy had her share but she wasn’t under the spotlight like Pruitt. While the main stream media looked the other way, Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy flew under the radar when it came to scandals. Remember Lisa Jackson using a fake email address to communicate with Obama? The other thing to consider is whether you wanted Pruitt to resign over trumped up “ethics” violations or resign for pushing a radical leftist agenda on Americans like Lisa Jackson did while EPA Director.
