Scott Pruitt doesn't just screw up the environment

Daily Mail, UK - Embattled Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt reportedly tried to use his motorcade's sirens and lights in Washington DC traffic so he could speed up his trips to the airport or dinner.

Multiple agency officials told the New York Times that Pruitt was often late to meetings and urged his detail to use the lights, including on one trip to the French restaurant Le Diplomate, which is he was known to frequent.

Eric Weese, who used to run his security detail, said he tried to stop him but was unsuccessful.

Two weeks after he told Pruitt that the sirens were only for emergencies, Weese said he was reassigned to another job within the EPA
