Scott Pruitt’s wife Marlyn is proving all the feminist doubters wrong.

Ever since Lisa Belkin’s seminal 2003 New York Times Magazine piece, “The Opt-Out Revolution,” feminists have been wringing their hands fearing economic disaster for women who left the workforce to tend to their children. But clearly they missed a pivotal part of the story of how those women could easily return to the paid labor force: They could simply lean on their more powerful husbands to get them gigs.

It doesn’t appear that Marlyn Pruitt, a former school nurse, took on much in the way of paid work in recent years. Her nursing licenses expired in 1996. She went on to spend the better part of the next two decades raising the couple’s children. While surely emotionally rewarding, it wasn’t financially lucrative. According to required Oklahoma state ethics filings, Scott Pruitt — the state’s attorney general at the time — said his wife did not earn more than $5,000 in 2014 and 2015.

This turned out to be something of an issue when the Pruitts began experiencing financial woes as a result of maintaining residences in both Washington and Tulsa on Scott Pruitt’s $189,600 annual salary as the new head of the EPA.

  EPA spokesperson calls reporter 'a piece of trash' A spokesperson for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) derided a reporter for The Atlantic as a "piece of trash" as he ended a phone call with her. Reached by phone, EPA spokesperson Jahan Wilcox declined to comment for a story about a top aide to Administrator Scott Pruitt resigning."You have a great day, you're a piece of trash," Wilcox told Atlantic reporter Elania Plott, she wrote in her story about the resignation of Pruitt's scheduler, Millan Hupp.Wilcox did not immediately respond to an email from The Hill seeking comment on the reported remark.

So the scandal-plagued Pruitt, a schnorrer par excellence, knew exactly how to help his wife and repair the household finances. He directed a top EPA aide to act as an employment counselor and reach out to Republican donors who could offer Marlyn Pruitt employment. As The Post reported, “The job hunt included Pruitt’s approaching wealthy party supporters and conservative figures with ties to the Trump administration.”

And what do you know? It worked!

The Judicial Crisis Network, a right-wing advocacy network that contributed millions to Pruitt-associated groups in the past, heeded the call after receiving Marlyn Pruitt’s résumé via a senior executive at the Federalist Society. The JCN hired Marlyn for a temporary contractor gig that ended earlier this year. Another employer, the New York nonprofit Concordia, paid Marlyn Pruitt $2,000 last year to assist with the group’s annual three-day conference — at which one of the speakers was a certain Scott Pruitt.

Scott Pruitt on Chick-Fil-A: 'We need more of them in Tulsa and we need more of them across the country'

  Scott Pruitt on Chick-Fil-A: 'We need more of them in Tulsa and we need more of them across the country' Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt appeared to confirm Wednesday recent reports that he looked into the potential of his wife opening a Chick-fil-A franchise, telling a reporter the country needs more of the fast food restaurant. "Chick-fil-A is a franchise of faith and it's one of the best in the country, and so, that's something we were very excited about, so, and we need more of them in Tulsa and we need more of them across the country," Pruitt says in a video, posted on Twitter by Nexstar Media Group reporter Jessica Smith.

Few formerly unemployed moms are this lucky in their contacts and job-hunting efforts. “Moms ‘opting in’ to work find doors shut,” opined CNN in a typical example of what happens to most women with Marlyn Pruitt’s résumé — or lack of one — in the U.S. job market. Many in her position find themselves peddling everything from costume jewelry to skin-care products to their friends for multi-level marketing companies, an endeavor that rarely earns them significant money. Others pick up work in the gig economy, doing things such as completing tasks on Mechanical Turk or driving for Uber. Still another group returns to school and racks up student debt in an effort to burnish their credentials. They take adult internships – or returnships, as they are sometimes called — in an effort to regain a place in the paid workforce.

True, like many a job hunter, Marlyn Pruitt experienced disappointment, too. She seems to have given up on the dream of acquiring a Chick-fil-A franchise, something her husband attempted to facilitate by arranging a call with the popular chicken sandwich chain’s CEO. (He eventually instead spoke with the company’s legal department.) Doug Deason, a Dallas investor with significant interests in oil and gas, also declined to help the former stay-at-home mom after the EPA director approached Deason on his wife’s behalf. “I couldn’t find anything that made sense, that wasn’t some kind of conflict,” he told The Post.

  Trump backs EPA chief Scott Pruitt. He's 'doing a great job' President Donald Trump expressed confidence in his controversial EPA chief Scott Pruitt."Well, Scott Pruitt is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday.

The revelations about Marlyn Pruitt’s strangely successful career rejuvenation have turned a few Scott Pruitt supporters into doubters. Conservative talk-radio host Laura Ingraham said on Wednesday that he should step down. So did National Review. Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) announced that he would like a sitdown with the EPA chief over reported ethical missteps, adding that he believes Pruitt’s deputy, Andrew Wheeler, is more than qualified to do the job if his boss resigns.

But President Trump appears to remain firmly in Pruitt’s corner, at least for now. And as long as the president continues to look favorably on his EPA chief, Scott and Marlyn Pruitt can continue to have it all.
