Breaking News: Van Jones has resigned as “Green Czar”

MSNBC and FoxNews.com are reporting this tonight. Few details as yet. Story now up at Foxnews.com (h/t izoneguy)

Interesting time to be turning in one’s resignation – midnight Saturday night, on a holiday weekend. I guess this gives the MSM a chance to not report it again…

UPDATE #1
Ironically, the first info to trickle out seems to be from the Washington Post, who ignored the entire story for quite some time before finally posting a story yesterday.

“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.

“Lies and distortions?”  Please, Mr. Jones.  I suppose all those videos out there that clearly quote you are “lies and distortions”.  This guy is a piece of work.

UPDATE #2
And just like clockwork, the MSM weighs in and blames “GOP attacks” for Jones’ resignation.  Not a peep about his disgusting past.

UPDATE #3
Good update and overview of the entire story from Andrew Malcolm
