    One of the things I've noticed about liberals is they rarely plan or think ahead, they live in the moment. She knew she was going to win, the entire country did, yet she had no plans on how to live in DC after the election. This woman has no money and is telling us what to do with the nation's finances.

    She is a prime example why they need to give intelligent tests to anyone running for office. This woman is so dumb, I can't believe she got elected. She is about as bad as that Congressman that thinks the island would tip over if to many troops are stationed on one side of it.

    There are ways for a woman under 30 years old to make money in Washington. She'll figure it out.

    Or get a deal like one of the crooked te abag gers.
    Pruitt’s living arrangement is the latest ethical issue to come under scrutiny by the EPA’s inspector general’s office, which said Thursday it’s considering opening an investigation into Pruitt’s lease arrangement — a move that would add to reviews of Pruitt’s taxpayer-funded first-class travel, his use of special hiring authority to grant raises to aides and his spending on a soundproof phone booth for his office.
    The EPA head was renting the condo from health care lobbyist Vicki Hart, whose husband, J. Steven Hart, is an energy lobbyist.

    The cavalcade of problems has raised questions about Pruitt’s future in the Trump administration.

    What an odd thing to put out in public. Even if she's not trying to solicit funds... like why would you even mention it? She's an odd broad.

    Its a BS story she is telling for sympathy.

    I guarantee you there are a line of lobbyists waiting to rent her a hotel for three months.

    If she doesn't have access to any funds yet she truly is ignorant.

    Hell, a simple call to a donor would set her up.

    This is a PR stunt.

    She should just live off campaign funds like Duncan Hunter does.

    I'm guessing she's going to try to get a bill passed for free housing for politicians.
