Sens. Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Patty Murray (D-WA) called on Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Alphonso Jackson to resign today. Dodd cited Jackson’s “repeated failure” to answer questions about a variety of HUD scandals:
I do not believe Secretary Jackson is capable of effectively carrying out his responsibilities and the responsibilities of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Now, more than ever, we need a HUD secretary who can devote his full energy to solving our nation’s housing crisis.
