The New York Times is reporting the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, attended the Louisville vs. Kentucky basketball game in December after acquiring tickets from Joe Craft.
Pruitt bought the tickets at “market value” and supposedly paid $130 cash per ticket.
The article, which you can read here, details how the declining coal industry now has allies in the EPA, but the focus of the story is Pruitt attending Rupp Arena.
He traveled to Lexington to watch the Cats destroy Louisville by 29 points. The Pruitt and Craft did not sit together but Pruitt did have his security detail and Kentucky governor Matt Bevin was scheduled to be a part of Pruitt’s group at Rupp Arena.
Pruitt was allowed access to locker room area before and after the game and even took a picture with Shai Alexander. Below, you can also see Pruitt and his son on the floor as the players walk out onto the court.
