Pruitt denied the allegations against him in April and has said little of the swirling scandals since then.
Wheeler "has the potential to be just as destructive", said Michael Mikulka, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 704.

"It's one thing after another with this guy", a confidante quoted Trump as saying.
"It is extremely hard for me to cease serving you in this role", Pruitt's letter to President Trump reads. Pruitt used the letter to lament "the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us".
Pruitt mechanically praised the President, calling him "brilliant" and a "political revolutionary", in the Post's words.

Pruitt's job had appeared in jeopardy since the end of March, when ABC News firstreported that he leased a Capitol Hill condo a year ago for just $50 a night.
Spokespeople for the EPA didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
The departure follows years worth of constant scandal and public outrage for Pruitt's constant profligate spending and insider dealing. Wheeler spent 14 years working for Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, the most ardent climate science denier; he's also worked as a lobbyist for the coal industry, reports Mother Jones.
