EPA's Pruitt confronted by teacher at Washington restaurant, report says

EPA's Pruitt confronted by teacher at Washington restaurant, report says

A whistleblower from within the Environmental Protection Agency claims that the agency's head, Scott Pruitt, would alter his official calendar and keep private records of his actual meetings to hide them from the public, according to a CNN report.

Mink told The Post Pruitt did not say anything during the encounter and left right after she approached him.

"I don't think she was trying to protect anybody, and I don't think she was trying to hurt anybody", Herman said.

Kristin Mink, a 6th-grade teacher at the Sidwell Friends school in D.C., posted a video on Facebook of the encounter at the Teaism restaurant in Penn Quarter, just four blocks from the EPA's headquarters, The New York Post reported.

Pruitt, who has destroyed United States environmental regulation and has bluntly refused to acknowledge climate change science, appeared speechless as Mink spent about 90 seconds listing some of the numerous misuse of funds and corruption scandals he has also faced since becoming head of the EPA under Donald Trump. "So I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out".

The Trump administration appointees described an administrator who sought a salary that topped $200,000 for his wife and accepted help from a subordinate in the job search, requested aid from senior EPA officials in a dispute with a Washington, D.C., landlord and disregarded concerns about his first-class travel.

Lyft is taking on Uber not with cars, but with bicycles
Lyft plans to launch bikeshare services in the company's top markets and cities where Motivate already operates. Motivate has mainly specialized in traditional bicycles that are stored in docking stations around cities.

The EPA chief was not the first Trump administration official to face a public backlash at a restaurant.

In the video, Pruitt listens silently as the woman berates him.

Pruitt, who has come under fire for scandals including allegedly using his position to seek employment for his wife and receiving a discount on a condo rental linked to a lobbying firm, did not respond, and text at the end of the video said that he "fled the restaurant before I got back to my seat".

"Administrator Pruitt always welcomes input from Americans, whether they agree or disagree with the decisions being made at EPA".

Last month, Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, was met with chants of "Shame!" as protestors interrupted her visit to MXDC, a Mexican restaurant. "This is evident by him listening to her comments and going on to thank her, which is not shown in the video", said an EPA spokesman.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was thrown out of a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant over her defense of the policy.
