It’s something that will come as a surprise to many to hear about former DOI chief and Montana Republican Ryan Zinke.
This news could shatter Zinke’s aspirations for higher office. It seems that the number one motivating factor for Zinke, as well as many former and current Trump admin officials and Republican elected officials is…Greed.

Ryan Zinke has joined the board of a gold mining company, at $100,000 a year. This probably means he’ll be making between $5-$10,000 an hour for his “work” of sitting in on a few board meetings, retreats and calls. Good work if you can get it.

That’s it, money is their God and they serve that God at any cost. Personal and professional relationships are meaningless. Policy goals are meaningless. All that matters is money.

People like Greg Gianforte and Ryan Zinke will abandon and attack constituents (and reporters) for the Almighty dollar.
According to Forbes magazine Greg Gianforte took outsourcing to new levels and made a fortune helping companies lay off American workers.
Power is a useful tool to get money and a nice way to make it easier to get money.
