VA Secretary Jim Nicholson resigns

Nicholson’s primary qualification for the VA job was serving as chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1997 to 2000, “raising close to $380 million for the 2000 cycle.” In March, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) called for his resignation, noting that his appointment was purely political and looked “like a Brownie situation.”

In February, Nicholson tried to downplay the number of injured veterans, claiming that “a lot of them come in for dental problems.”
