Walter Shaub Statement on Scott Pruitt Resignation Amidst Endless Ethics Scandals


WASHINGTON – Today, after months of mounting ethics scandals, Scott Pruitt resigned as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Walter Shaub, senior director, ethics, at Campaign Legal Center (CLC) released the following statement:

“We are dismayed that Pruitt held onto his job for so long and what that says about the low bar for government ethics in the current administration. The American people deserve public servants with higher standards for ethics, not those who misuse their positions to seek personal rewards for themselves and their families.”
