About time someone started taking it to the democrats.
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke harshly attacked Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., who is set to lead the House Natural Resources Committee next Congress, accusing him Friday of alcoholism and calling on him to resign from Congress.
“It’s hard for him to think straight from the bottom of the bottle,” Zinke said in a statement he posted to Twitter. “This is coming from a man who used nearly $50,000 in tax dollars as hush money to cover up his drunken and hostile behavior. He should resign and pay back the taxpayer for the hush money and tens of thousands of dollars he forced my department to spend investigation unfounded allegations.”
Zinke was responding to an op-ed Grijalva wrote Friday calling on the Interior head to resign because of numerous ethics allegations investigations he is facing.
“I take no pleasure in calling for this step, and I have resisted it even as questions have grown about Mr. Zinke’s ethical and managerial failings,” said Grijalva in a USA Today op-ed. “Unfortunately, his conduct in office and President Donald Trump’s neglect in setting ethical standards for his own cabinet have made it unavoidable.”
