OKGOP Chair, Pam Pollard had scheduled EPA Director Scott Pruitt to be the keynote speaker at the State Republican Gala in Moore on May 5, according to an invitation sent out by the party. The event is meant to be a fundraiser for the OKGOP.
Pruitt said the event was approved by the EPA’s ethics counsel. But Pruitt said it was instead, an error on the part of the OKGOP and Chairman Pam Pollard, that violated the law.
“What happened was the folks that invited me sent out an invitation post that didn’t comply with federal law and federal ethics law. So we're not going to be able to attend,” Pruitt told FoxNews Radio host Brian Kilmeade Thursday morning.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator and Former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt will not be appearing at a Republican gala next week, he said Thursday morning on conservative radio. His decision to withdraw comes amid an accusation his appearance would violate federal law.
