A big salute to Glenn Beck on this one. He’s the guy who first sounded the alarm and got the ball rolling. I believe that this is just the beginning of a long process and that Beck will prove to be a 2009 version of Woodward and Bernstein.
Here’s a YouTube clip of where this all started (with a little humor mixed in as well).
Roll the tape:
Jones’ statement of resignation below the fold.
“I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today,” Jones said in a resignation letter released by the CEQ late Saturday.
“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide,” he said.
“I have been inundated with calls — from across the political spectrum — urging me to ‘stay and fight,'” he continued. “But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.
“It has been a great honor to serve my country and my President in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement. I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future. I will continue to do so, in the months and years ahead.”
