Sign the petition: Tell Congress to Fire Scott Pruitt
Currently, Pruitt is plagued by scandal for his many disreputable actions - bringing his top aides on a lavish trip to Morocco, spending $120,000 on a trip to Rome, hiring 20 personal bodyguards, and helping to secure massive raises for two favorite aides - all of these by misusing taxpayer dollars and funds meant to better the environment.
He faces growing criticism on all sides, including members of his own party. The White House is reportedly frustrated with him. Even Republicans like Chris Christie think he’s on his way out. One of Pruitt’s closest aides resigned amidst the scandals, clearly demonstrating that his camp feels the pressure. But so far, Congress hasn’t done enough to push for Pruitt to be fired.
Your Representative could help kick Pruitt out of the EPA by publicly demanding his removal. But we need your help to push them to act.
Sign the petition and join us in telling Congress to act in Americans' best interest and fire Scott Pruitt.
From: [Your Name]
We, the undersigned, call on you as elected members of Congress to immediately take action to fire Scott Pruitt. We look to you to hold him accountable and publicly demand his removal as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Pruitt is corrupt, wasting hundreds of thousands of our taxpayer dollars. He is also opposed to civil rights and environmental justice -- especially towards communities of color, who are disproportionately impacted by pollution and climate change. As an official in Oklahoma, he authored legislation and took legal action to block marriage equality, transgender rights and women's access to healthcare. He is on record saying Islam isn’t a religion, is a doubter of evolution and is a climate denier.
Finally, he is intent on dismantling the EPA and overturning our environmental laws. He is rolling back the Clean Water Rule, rescinded a ban on the toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos, and is trying to push scientists out of the agency.
It’s well past time to fire Scott Pruitt. Congress must act now.
