The Office of Government Ethics may have some beef with Andrew Wheeler.
The acting Environmental Protection Agency chief receives more free burgers each month than any healthy person should eat. Check out this bite of a financial disclosure form, which the nonpartisan Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington spotted and the Center for Responsive Politics' Anna Massoglia shared.
New favorite personal financial disclosure entry: Acting EPA head Andrew Wheeler gets up to $2,000-a-month in free burgers from Upshur Burger Concepts, which owns the trademark to Lucky Buns in DC—whose burgers are the bomb—estimating he got <$1k "based on his best recollection." pic.twitter.com/8HIPJxK2RX
Executive branch officials have to disclose their financial interests to the ethics office. It helps prevent conflicts of interest, and also answered why Wheeler "promoted Lucky Buns so much on his personal Twitter" even after he joined the EPA, Mother Jones' Rebecca Leber says. Lucky Buns later hopped in to say Wheeler "helped us get off the ground two years ago as an investor," and they offer free burgers "to all our investors."
