If a democrat did any of this the country would have to stop functioning until they were in prison ... ddeb4823d6

At least once a week, a member of the Trump administration demonstrates in an entertaining way that public service can be a great way to make a buck. This week’s installment is a double feature, starring Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

First up: Politico reported on business dealings involving Zinke, his wife, their foundation and a Montana business development pushed by a group founded by David Lesar, chairman of energy group Halliburton.

Yes, Halliburton, one of the world’s biggest oil field services firms and a company that, needless to say, does quite a bit of business with the U.S. government, including the Interior Department, on matters related to such matters as fracking and oil field worker safety. That would seem to indicate that maybe Zinke going into business with Lesar isn’t the best idea? But this is the Trump administration, where conflicts of interest are to be imitated, not eliminated.

"Corporate Democrat" phrase created at the same place "Angry Mob" was...People keep falling for rightwing talking points. How sad.
