Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a government ethics watchdog group, on Wednesday filed a complaint with the Inspector General at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claiming that the Acting Associate Administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation Joseph Goffman could have violated ethics rules.
The ethics watchdog noted that the alleged actions from Goffman are “a blatant violation of ethics rules,” adding that Goffman being at the agency for the second time should have known better, especially since he signed the Recusal Statement less than two weeks prior to this incident.
“The American public deserves to be assured political appointees are carrying out their duties in an ethical, impartial manner without favoritism toward their former employers,” Michael Chamberlain, the director of Protect the Public’s Trust, said in a statement.
