Scott Pruitt is an American Republican politiciany from Oklahoma, USA. Under President Donald Trump’s administration, he served as the Environmental Protection Agency’s 14th Administrator. He had to resign the post in the wake of various federal investigations into his management practices, spending habits, conflict of interest charges and more importantly the extreme secrecy that was maintained during his tenure. Prior to his EPA job, he served two terms as the Attorney General of Oklahoma. While contesting for position, in 2010 and 2014, he received handsome contributions from the fossil fuel industry for both campaigns; even though he contested unopposed in 2014. His reputation as the states Attorney General was underpinned by his many attempts to sue the EPA, albeit fruitlessly, for its actions against various industries. He was also very vocal against many of President Obama’s policies like immigration, Obama care, and consumer protection acts. A lawyer by profession and a devout Christian, Pruitt has fought many cases in his early career against state inference with religious freedom especially with respect to abortion rights and gay marriages. A lobbyist now, he is firmly focussed on issues and interests pertaining to the energy and natural resources industry of America.
