Judge orders Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to release emails related to fossil fuel industr
OKLAHOMA CITY A judge has ruled that Americans have a right to know how much of a relationship Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has with oil and gas leaders before becoming the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.
For years, Pruitt has been an outspoken adversary of the EPA and is currently suing the agency.
A 2014 New York Times report claimed that Pruitts ties to Devon Energy Corporation directly influenced decisions he made while in office in Oklahoma.
Through open records requests, the New York Times obtained a letter written by Devons attorneys, which was then taken to Pruitt.

2. I probably shouldn't say this in public
I remember in jr. high school in the 80s we had a typing class, and we had to type a letter to send to president Reagan. I remember typing my letter to him asking him not to open ANWR to drilling. Anyway, Scott Pruitt was a classmate of mine. The idea that he could be up for epa executive has really rocked me. I just can't get my mind around it.

4. Seems he has not morally developed at all. Maddow just did a report on him. Found out that
as AG of Oklahoma-he was involved in looking over the internet to find a drug to execute a OK prisoner. It was the botched case in 2014. He had no medical knowledge and should not have been involved. He later DENIED it. But maddow said court records prove he was involved up to his neck.
Dems are staying up all night tonight to try to delay the vote. I am trying to find an article that she is talking about it.

Repugnants that pretend to suddenly have a conscience I dont see enough of them flipping.
