Pruitt Demoted Multiple High Ranking EPA Officials After They Questioned His Spending: Report

Multiple high ranking Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials were either demoted or reassigned after they questioned EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s spending, according to a new report.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that at least five EPA officials, four of which were high ranking employees, were demoted and given different positions after they raised concerns about Pruitt’s spending.

One of the officials was Kevin Chmielewski. He was a political appointee who was placed on administrative leave without pay.

Two other officials, Reginald E. Allen and Eric Weese, were put in positions that include less interaction with Pruitt, according to The Times.

According to CBS, Weese, who served in the EPA for 16 years and was in charge of Pruitt’s security detail, was demoted after he refused to use an emergency siren in his car to get through D.C. traffic in order to make it to a meeting on time.
