Is it OK to confront government officials in a restaurant?

She also urged him to resign.

"Pruitt looked on in silence on Monday as the woman, Kristin Mink, criticized the EPA for relaxing fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks and Pruitt for paying "$50 bucks a night to stay in a D.C. condo that's connected to an energy lobbying firm", according to a video posted on her Facebook page. Kristin Mink's husband filmed her (watch below) calmly walking up to Pruitt at DC restaurant Teaism on July 2 with her baby in tow.

A new round of negative headlines is putting the spotlight on Scott Pruitt, the ethically challenged Environmental Protection Agency chief whose ever-expanding list of controversies has been one of the most consistent themes of the Trump administration. He loves clean water. This man is directly and significantly harming my child's - and every child's - health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations, while he uses taxpayer money to fund a lavish lifestyle. "I had to decide what to say, he's so scandal-ridden", she said.

"He's corrupt, he's a liar, he's a climate change denier, and as a public servant, he should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he's hurting", she said in a Facebook post. The request to help his wife, Marlyn Pruitt, a former school nurse, find a job at the organization came during summer 2017, the people with knowledge of the interview said.

Pruitt is the latest senior member of the Trump administration to be confronted in a restaurant or public place. Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of homeland security, was heckled by protesters while dining out as well. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant by the owner.

Lakers’ NBA title odds improve to 7-2 after adding LeBron James
James is certainly the most prominent free agent signed by the Lakers since Shaquille O'Neal left the Orlando Magic in 1996. He averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game for IN last season, his first campaign without missing a game.

"He had no response, he had no defense, he had no apology, he did no explaining, he did no denying", she said of Pruitt.

Pruitt's conduct in office has made him the subject of at least 12 separate investigations by the Government Accountability Office, the White House Office of Management and Budget, the US Office of Special Counsel, two House committees and the EPA inspector general.

Some of the hidden meetings reportedly ranged from coal industry CEO Joseph Craft and other industry executives, to Kellyanne Conway, to Cardinal George Pell, a Vatican official and climate change skeptic who weeks later was hit with sex crimes charges.

Footage shows Pruit quietly listening to Mink's statements before the video cuts out after her comments.
