BREAKING: Obama’s Commerce Secretary Resigns
“The work that you do to help America’s entrepreneurs and businesses build our economy and create jobs is more important now than ever, and I have come to the conclusion that I need to step down to prevent distractions from this critical mission,” Mr. Bryson said in a message to department employees.
Mr. Bryson had gone on medical leave shortly after reports emerged about his numerous car accidents. He released no further evidence as it relates to his medical condition.
President Obama released a statement thanking Bryson for his service.
“As secretary, John fought tirelessly for our nation’s businesses and workers, helping to bolster our exports and promote American manufacturing and products at home and abroad,” Mr. Obama said in the statement. “John has proven himself an effective and distinguished leader throughout his career in both the public and private sectors, from his success in the business world to his work leading on issues in the renewable energy industry.”
