Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “EXCLUSIVE: Former Scott Pruitt Aide, Cleared Of Wrongdoing, Speaks Out, But The Democrat Who Accused Her Remains Silent”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Democratic Delaware Sen. Tom Carper was silent on news federal investigators could not substantiate allegations he brought against former Environmental Protection Agency political appointee Samantha Dravis.
Dravis, however, called the allegations against her “unfounded from the start.” EPA investigators found no support for accusations she skipped work for a three-month period.
“The inspector general process should be used to investigate credible ethical breaches, not smear and destroy political enemies,” Dravis told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“This was an allegation that was completely unfounded from the start, and entirely contradicted by the record,” said Dravis, who served as EPA’s senior counsel and associate administrator of the policy office.
Carper did not respond to multiple requests for comment, despite being the reason EPA officials investigated Dravis’s attendance while she worked for former Administrator Scott Pruitt. Carper is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. (RELATED: Former Scott Pruitt Aide Cleared Of Charges Leveled By Democrats)
I know Samantha very well. She is extremely talented and diligent. Clownish Senator @TomCarperforDE should be ashamed of himself for his lame attempt to smear a capable public servant who has been totally vindicated. https://t.co/xh3tMiXCwp

Samantha was the victim of a sexist smear that was absurd on its face but leveled by Senators anyway. Am glad this was cleared up without caveat. https://t.co/UqAO7UIdvN
