Ryan Zinke needs to resign immediately as Secretary of the Interior.
Thats how Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) began his USA Today op-ed Friday. His reasoning? Zinke is embroiled in scandals and nepotism.
Heres where Grijalva claims Zinke erred:
As has been widely reported, an Interior Department inspector general investigation of Mr. Zinke one of at least 17 publicly known formal probes of either him or his department since he took office was recently referred to the Justice Department. The referral centers on a land development project called 95 Karrow in Mr. Zinkes hometown of Whitefish, Mont., involving David Lesar, the chairman of oil contractor Halliburton; his son John; and a Montana property developer named Casey Malmquist. The proposal would increase the value of land controlled by Mr. Zinkes family.
Grijalva is the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, which oversees the Interior Department, which Zinke runs. When Democrats take control of the House in January, Grijalva is in line to become chairman of that committee, giving him the ability to increase public scrutiny on Zinke.
The Interior secretary responded Friday afternoon with a blistering statement of his own that focuses on Grijalvas controversial past:

WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ BERNIE SUPPORTER!
(sorry, just had to go for it)
Sounds like I need to buy some more Popcorn Futures....
No more letting DemonRat mud slinging pass. Fight back!
The only rational response to a drunken democrap.
Grijalva needs to take his ass back home where there aren’t any gringos to piss the boy off. Fat bastard.
Take heed repubtards. This is the proper response to the left. Stop wetting your pants and grovelling.
This is what the Socialists will be like for the next TWO years and ZINKE is the guy setting the example on the Republicans should respond. Enough of riding through the political forest on white horses, in red uniforms and tall hats. It’s time to get in the bushes with them on their terms, ambush them at every clearing, kick them when their down and take on prisoners..............Let’a get real!!!!
I really hope every single opening statement and preamble to a direct question Zinke has to Grijalva committee mentions the $50,000 of taxpayer supplied hush money to pay off a sexual harassment claim. In fact, I hope every witness to every congressional committee frames their responses to clear setups for politically motivated smears with statements of fact about taxpayer funded payoffs, proven corrupt activities, and crimes swept under the table. They want a circus... Give it to them good and hard.
MSM looking up hope to pronounce that name. Grrrr .
Not one penny should go to Trump’s divisive, ridiculous, ineffective border wall that is nothing more than a political stunt to appease his base.
Don't back down, give them no quarter and attack at every opportunity that presents itself. Use facts to our advantage whenever possible but don't be afraid to call out BS when they are flinging dirt. They will show no mercy and will never compromise; neither should we.
See my tag line.
I’m betting it’s common knowledge that the guy is a drunken POS>
