Arnett's Law (h/t vigilante): "When they Resign by Design it's Rarely Benign"…posted by Bill Arnett @ 1:14 PM Permalink …from the NYT's article titled, "Federal Contracting Chief Resigns":
The head of the agency that administers federal contracts has resigned amid allegations of engaging in illegal political activities and doling out no-bid awards.I believe that this establishes a new record: Someone NOT citing the, "I need to spend more time with my family," anticipatory defense to future corruption allegations.
The General Services Administration on Wednesday announced the departure of Lurita Doan, who was appointed by President Bush two years ago.
The White House made no mention of why Doan resigned in an e-mailed statement that noted the president's gratitude for her service.
Nope, just straight up corruption here, right? I mean, you know it's bad when even the White House won't lie to cover your ass.
