In other news, the Biden administration has appointed Randy Moore as the new director of the U.S. Forest Service. He's the first African American ever appointed to the position.
Meanwhile, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has also been appointed as the director of enforcement at the SEC. He's the first Sikh American to hold either position.
Finally, the EPA's inspector general found agency officials appointed by Trump kept some employees on the payroll even after they were fired.
The improper payments were directed by former chief of staff Ryan Jackson and carried out by former White House liaison Charles Munoz, and totaled almost $38,000, according to the March report obtained by POLITICO via a Freedom of Information Act request.
In addition, Munoz also received an improper raise and submitted “fraudulent timesheets” that cost EPA almost $96,000, the OIG calculated.
Federal prosecutors declined to press charges over any of the OIG’s findings, and both men have since left the agency — Jackson in February 2020 to be vice president for government and political affairs at the National Mining Association, and Munoz on Jan. 20, when the Biden administration took office.
I intended to be here yesterday, but my hair color and commute back home ended up taking 3 hours. It was a long process.
Here's my new color, and yes I know I need to update my avatars cross virtually every platform. I'm both a redhead and a blonde now.
I got my hair dyed and it looks even better than I imagined. I'm in love 🤩 pic.twitter.com/jXtYjnorZG
