Abramoff’s Contact In The White House Resigns

The predictable Friday news dump has CNN et al. reporting:

A key aide to presidential political strategist Karl Rove resigned Friday in the wake of a congressional report that listed hundreds of contacts between disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and the White House.

Susan Ralston, special assistant to President Bush, submitted a resignation letter to him less than five weeks before congressional elections in which corruption and scandal are emerging as key issues for voters.

“She did not want to be a distraction to the White House at such an important time and so we have accepted her resignation,” White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino said.

She worked for Abramoff and then was hired by Rove, but the White House couldn’t remember “having relations with that man.”
