We do not have the fox guarding the henhouse. We have damn Col. Sanders guarding the henhouse.
A former coal executive, who had been cited for dangerous practices “numerous times”, is Trump’s pick for heading up mine safety.
The White House announced Saturday that Trump would be nominating David Zatezalo to run the Mine Safety and Health Administration. Zatezalo was previously the CEO of Rhino Resources, a Kentucky-based coal company.
Zatezalo got at least one man killed during is tenure at Rhino where safety violations were more the norm than an oddity.
Hell, even Joe Manchin opposes him.
