Walter Shaub federal ethics chief who tried to get Leper to do the right thing resigns

In an interview, Shaub said he was not leaving under pressure, adding that no one in the White House or the administration pushed him to leave. But the ethics chief said he felt that he had reached the limit of what he could achieve in this administration, within the current ethics framework.

“It’s clear that there isn’t more I could accomplish,” he said.

“In working with the current administration, it has become clear that we need to strengthen the ethics program,” he said.

Thanks Mr. Shaub for at least trying!

Maybe he'll nominate Mike Flynn. I heard he may be available.

FYI when Obama was awarded the Nobel peace prize, he consulted his lawyers on the ethicality of accepting it. That was on a different plane altogether.
