There Goes Another One

The head of the federal agency charged with overseeing government ethics announced Thursday he is resigning nearly six months before his term is set to expire.

Walter Shaub Jr., the director of the independent Office of Government Ethics, tweeted the resignation letter he sent to President Donald Trump, announcing his last day on the job would be July 19.


He clashed with Trump and his advisers over issues ranging from how Trump has handled his business dealings as president to the way the Trump transition was handled and the promotion of Trump businesses from White House staff.


Add Mr. Shaub to Luis Borunda, who resigned from the Election Integrity Commission, Hui Chen, who resigned from the corporate compliance division of government ethics, and the several people who resigned from State. People with a conscience don't seem to want to work for the Trump administration. ...but hey, do what you will anyway.
