"Interior: Greens Seek Ethics Inquiry Into Former Staffer"

"Environmental groups today urged an inquiry into a former Interior Department official who now works for the oil and gas industry.

In a six-page letter that draws upon media reports and public records, Public Citizen, the Climate Investigations Center and Friends of the Earth asked Interior's top ethics officer to examine the work of Megan Bloomgren.

Bloomgren served during the start of the Trump administration as Interior's acting deputy chief of staff and communications director. Since early June, she's been vice president for communications for the American Petroleum Institute. Before her Interior stint, she worked for DCI Group LLC, a public relations and lobbying firm."
