Republicans resigning all over the place….
Department of Children & Families Secretary Jerry Regier announced Monday that he will resign, saying he can’t be effective amid continued criticism of the department.
Regier, 59, offered his resignation to Gov. Jeb Bush during an early afternoon meeting. He said he will step down sometime over the next few weeks.
Regier said at an abruptly called news conference that while the agency had made progress, he had been frustrated that so much negative attention was focused on the department, most recently created by an audit last month by Bush’s inspector general that concluded that Regier and two top aides took favors from contractors.
