Bill Shine out, after:
While in government— Shine receives $$ from Fox
Gives Hannity a high 5 at Trump event
Strips Fox competitor of WH credential
Ends regular press conferences, thereby giving Fox an advantage as to its access to POTUS + WH
Can't get financial disclosure approved
Quits abruptly
Only the best propaganda spewers!
That's because he's going to work on Trump's 2020 campaign.

Maybe he quit because he got the measles.

This isn't quite a cabinet position, but this does seem to be the thread for quitters.

U.S. Air Force Secretary Wilson to resign, leaving new vacancy
U.S. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, who was considered a top candidate to become the next secretary of defense, said on Friday she has decided to resign and return to academia, leaving another vacant post at the top level of the Pentagon.

Wilson confirmed the news, first reported by Reuters, in a tweet here, saying she had informed President Donald Trump of her plans to become president of the University of Texas at El Paso. She plans to step down on May 31.

In the weird coincidence department:
After leaving government in 1991, Wilson founded Keystone International, Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico to promote business development in the United States and Russia.
I mean, is there no one at all in the Trump administration who doesn't have some sort of prior connections to Russia? :think:
Time and tide melt the snowman.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.
