And the horse he rode in on
Ryan Zinke came to the Department of the Interior cultivating an image of a rugged outdoorsman with a respect for nature. He immediately started measuring public lands for division and distribution to energy interests. He will be leaving the job before the end of the year in the midst of a series of ethics investigations.
Besides inquiries into travel and personal expenses, the inspector general of the Interior Department has been looking into Zinke’s handling of a Connecticut casino project, the re-drawing of boundaries for Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to benefit a state lawmaker, and conversations with Halliburton about a land development project in Zinke's hometown.
He may be gone, but his tenure at the Department will have lasting effects.
