“Ryan Zinke has notified the White House he intends to step down as interior secretary. Concern about legal costs and scrutiny of his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest were factors in Zinke’s decision, I’m told. Plan is to announce Wednesday. …”
You may recall that Halliburton bribed Zinke with beer. Not a pint, but his own brewery, in his hometown of Whitefish Montana, which is also home to notable Nazi Richard Spencer, and the guys who fleeced the gubmint when they won the no-bid contract to restore electricity to Puerto Rico after the recent hurricane.
Zinke doesn’t look good in stripes, I guess, so he decided now was the time to flee. So the question is, who will replace the crook?
“BREAKING: Trump has been notified Zinke plans to step down and has begun searching for replacement. Names that have emerged include Nevada’s Dean Heller, Nevada’s Adam Laxalt, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, Idaho’s Butch Otter, Utah’s Sean Reyes and others.”
Sweet Jeebus, it’s a Police line-up of drooling fools, morons, and malcontents, who would like nothing more than turning the public lands over to the tender mercies of the extraction companies.
