(The Hill) A former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official who resigned earlier this year for comparing his work to crucifixion has found new employment with a leading green group.
The Sierra Club on Friday announced that Al Armendariz would be joining the group's "Beyond Coal" campaign next month as a senior representative.
"As a third generation Texan, I'm proud to be taking on this new role to help protect Texas," Armendariz said in a statement released by Sierra Club.

Armendariz stepped down as EPA's Region 6 administrator in April after a video surfaced of him comparing his work enforcing of environmental laws to the way ancient Roman conquerors used terror to keep order.
