Pruitt’s political future uncertain back home in Oklahoma

The Associated Press - July 7, 2018 8:17 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Scott Pruitt’s tenure as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency ended with his resignation, but political experts in his home state of Oklahoma say he could continue his career in public office.
The path could lead him back to Washington.
Pruitt, 50, has widely been considered a potential candidate for either governor or U.S. Senate. Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Pam Pollard says voters there still support and trust him.
However the chairman of the political science department at the University of Oklahoma, Keith Gaddie, says Pruitt is too badly tarnished after a series of serious ethics scandals over 18 months. Some of Pruitt’s critics say he’s lucky to have avoided prison, given the severity of his ethical violations.
