EPA official resigns, but fallout from 'crucify' comments persists
The regional Environmental Protection Agency administrator in Dallas resigned Monday, just days after Republicans seized on comments he made two years ago suggesting the government was out to "crucify" oil and gas drillers.
Al Armendariz, who headed the Region 6 office, informed EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson of his departure in a letter over the weekend after she failed to come to his defense and distanced herself from his past statements.
