Senator Calls For HUD Secretary to Resign:


Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) called on HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson to resign in the wake of his comments regarding the politicization of HUD contracting. Lautenberg: “If Secretary Jackson really said this, then President Bush should ask for his resignation. Government contracts must be based on merit, not on political favoritism.”

UPDATE: Waxman and Frank call for hearings into HUD contracting, according to Reuters.
