In the White House
The #MeToo movement reached into the upper echelon of the White House staff this week when White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter resigned because of charges of domestic violence from two of his ex-wives. Donald Trump wished Porter well and reminded reporters that Porter denied the allegations. The whole affair had shades of Trump’s defense of Roy Moore in Alabama. When it comes to abusers and abuse victims, we can count on the president to side with the abusers.
With George Holding
When a bipartisan group of local elected officials, state officials and grassroots activists met with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, George Holding was on hand to make sure that he sided with Washington over North Carolina. Holding has made it clear that he supports off-shore drilling against the wishes of people who live on the coast and would be most affected by the drilling.
