“Poop Train” Trump EPA Official Resigns After Indictment

The Birmingham Herald reports:

Onis “Trey” Glenn III has resigned from his position as Region 4 Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency after being indicted on ethics charges in Alabama. Glenn submitted a letter of resignation dated Nov. 18 to acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, citing his intention to resign as a result of what he called “unfounded charges levied against me that I must and will fight.”

“Stepping down now, I hope removes any distraction from you and all the great people who work at EPA as you carry out the Agency’s mission,” Glenn wrote in the resignation letter which was provided to AL.com. Glenn was appointed by Pres. Donald Trump to head Region 4 of the EPA in 2017, overseeing the eight-state Southeast region that includes Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina.
