Abramoff's First Casualty: Norton Heads For The Door

by Steve

Gale Norton is heading for the door, and I'm sure it has nothing to do with Jack Abramoff's threat earlier this week to start naming names. The official story is that Norton wants to leave to make more money again in the private sector, raping our natural resources for cash, and to be closer to the mountains she loves in the West, undoubtedly the same mountains she wanted to strip mine as the mining industry's point person masquerading as an Interior Secretary. And for those of you who say that this isn't necessarily tied to Abramoff, I would ask why she is resigning days before Abramoff's sentencing and "naming names", when Bulldozer Gale could have resigned at any time after the 2004 election?
