The ethics crisis at the Interior Department starts at the top — with a former oil and gas industry lobbyist in charge. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt has been dubbed “the ultimate D.C.-swamp creature” and has so many conflicts of interest that he carried a list in his pocket to keep track of them all. Since Trump tapped him to oversee our nation’s public lands, Bernhardt has given industry insiders everything they want: Selling off public lands for drilling, slashing endangered species protections, diverting public water to Big Agriculture and so much more.
An oil and gas lobbyist has no business overseeing our nation’s lands and natural resources. Add your name now to demand that David Bernhardt resign from his post as Interior Secretary.
