Watch a Woman Confront EPA Chief Scott Pruitt at Lunch

Watch EPA chief Pruitt scolded while in restaurant told to resign by teacher holding her toddler

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt pauses while speaking as he testifies before the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, April 26, 2018.

Three days later, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked by the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because of her work for the Trump administration. In his resignation letter he said, "The unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us".

Pruitt has been under scrutiny for months amid reports involving questionable spending on first class plane tickets, use of a security detail, connections with lobbyists and industry groups, and use of his office for favors.

Pruitt remained silent while Mink spoke, according to the cellphone video shot by Mink's husband.

But revelations about his behavior continued to mount, including reports that he repeatedly enlisted subordinates to help him search for housing, book personal travel and even help search for a six-figure job for his wife.

The EPA administrator also reportedly alienated colleagues by positioning himself to take over as USA attorney general if the frequently embattled head of the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions, stepped down or was sacked.

The Capital reports that Mayor Gavin Buckley announced the plans during a visit Monday to a temporary Capital Gazette newsroom. In a later interview on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone".

Trump said on Twitter that Pruitt's recently-Senate confirmed deputy Andrew Wheeler will on Monday assume the duties of acting administrator of the EPA.

"I think that Scott Pruitt should have to look at that next generation that he's impacting by how he's making a lot of selfish, stupid decisions on how to spend taxpayer money", Mink said.

With Pruitt's departure, President Donald Trump loses an administrator many conservatives regarded as one of the more effective members of his Cabinet. The EPA told the outlet it wouldn't comment "on anonymous sources who are working to distract Americans from the Trump administration's accomplishments on regulatory certainty and environmental stewardship".

In recent weeks, an exodus of trusted staffers left Pruitt increasingly isolated, and some once-loyal Republican lawmakers wearied of defending him.

He had denied wrongdoing in the face of multiple congressional and oversight inquiries. He also had a $43,000 phone booth installed in his office. The anecdotes offered ammunition for critics of the now-outgoing EPA chief as a creature of the swamp Trump promised to drain.
