Another defeat for the Demos. Expect the illiberals to become more unhinged. Their dreaded boogieman is the Head of the EPA.
Scott Pruitt has been confirmed by the Senate as the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency by a 52-46 vote. Pruitt is the former Oklahoma Attorney General.
The vote was mostly along party lines, with the exception of Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who voted against Pruitt's confirmation, and Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) broke with the Democrats and voted for him. Sen. John MCCain (R-AZ) skipped the vote.
The Washington Post's announcement of Pruitt's confirmation raised eyebrows and drew accusations of bias.......snip~
