The ethanol lobby’s prolonged campaign to get EPA administrator Scott Pruitt fired has just hit a snag. The mainstream media is forced to retract one of the numerous small-ball hit pieces on Pruitt — who is being targeted with leaks by a disgruntled former advance man and his buddy.
The Washington Times reports: “Last week the New York Times published the latest charge against Pruitt. They claim Pruitt forces employees at the EPA to do personal favors for the administrator and his family. The most volatile and damning allegation was that Pruitt used his position as Trump’s man at EPA to twist arms at the University of Virginia Law School to get his daughter admitted. The implication is clear. That Pruitt’s daughter was admitted despite her lack of qualifications and only because her daddy is well placed in the Trump Administration. Except, the story wasn’t true. In a massive correction, The Times explains that not only did the recommendation for Pruitt’s daughter (a thing that pretty much every student acquires when applying for a prestigious school like UVA Law) was obtained not only before Pruitt was EPA Administrator, it happened before the presidential election of 2016.”
