Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) questioned the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Gina McCarthy, about questionable behavior by employees in her department.
She explains that there is an administrative process that needs to be followed, “because it’s one thing to get upset; it’s a second thing to successfully go through both criminal and administrative procedures to address the issue…”
Chaffetz interrupts her explanation: “And I think that’s something we’re going to have to address, because why these people aren’t fired on the spot, I just do not know.” McCarthy responds, “I would welcome Congress taking up some of those challenges. It would be great.”
