Coal Lobbyist Set to become #2 at EPA

And if that headline doesn't make you a bit queasy, think of it this way; this former coal company lobbyist, Andrew Wheeler, would be in line to take over if Scott Pruitt is forced out because of ethics violations. It is as if Pruitt planned this nomination as his insurance policy.

The Republican Senate approved Wheeler's nomination 53-45 with the help of 3 swing state Democrats. In a moment of dark humor, Judith Enck, the former head of EPA's Region 2, told Mother Jones, "It would be similar to having a tobacco lobbyist heading up the American Lung Association,” There really isn't much more to add to that.
