Zinke Leaves Ship

Ryan Zinke Flees The Trump Administration

Bloomberg:

“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.

    Uh, TG? Afraid that’s already happened.
    Zinke, wiping the dust from his hands: “My work here is done.”
    He opened BOTH coasts to offshore drilling. He sold or leased what were once public lands, and Nat’l. Monuments to the highest bidders – oil and gas extraction companies.
    He installed a buncha like-minded buddies in the Interior Dep’t., to serve as his lackeys. His utter disdain and his disregard for the rules and laws regarding transportation expenses is legendary.

    And whoever replaces him is likely to be worse. FAR worse,

    Scrutiny of his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest? That’s an awful lot of words just to replace one word: corruption.

      Of all the GOP’s nascent political place minders, there are damn few who look even vaguely male — let alone butch — but there are quite a few who look like an otter bereft of its fur.

    And Rick Perry heads one of the cabinet departments he wanted to eliminate entirely along with two others, but famously couldn’t remember the name of it. The worst president ever has assembled the worst cabinet ever.
