Scott Pruitt Keeps Eff’ing That Chicken

Scott Pruitt enlisted EPA aid to help find his wife a job at Chick-fil-A

Three months after Scott Pruitt was sworn in as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, his executive scheduler emailed Dan Cathy, chairman and president of the fast food company Chick-fil-A, with an unusual request: Would Cathy meet with Pruitt to discuss “a potential business opportunity”?

A call was arranged, then canceled, and Pruitt eventually spoke with someone from the company’s legal department. Only then did he reveal the “opportunity” on his mind was a job for his wife, Marlyn.

Nothing more needs to be said. Stupid cluck.

    So, does anyone other than me think he wanted to get her a regular “job” to help defray the “high cost” of “market rate” housing in DC? Or, like me, do you think he was hoping to get the “family discount” because of the high “full retail” cost of the “deluxe with cheese”?
    Or, does anyone else think he’s hoping that by getting her regulR “job” that Mrs. P will come accross as somewhat less evil than that Mrs. M who married “my name’s on the dollar!11!”?

      I think he was trying to get a franchise license for free, you know, in his wife’s name so there would be no ethics issues there…

    Insurance. All people who work at Chick-fil-A go to heaven because they’re not open on Sunday.

    The only grift Pruitt hasn’t run is selling that bridge in Brooklyn.
