Erroll Southers Withdraws and The Color Aroused US Senate

Erroll Southers, President Obama's selection to head the TSA

According to NPR's Mark Memmott, The Obama administration's choice to head the Transportation Security Administration has withdrawn his name from nomination after weeks of questions about whether he gave misleading answers to Congress regarding a reprimand he got for running background checks on his then-estranged wife's boyfriend in the late 1980s. The Associated Press just reported that "in a statement, Erroll Southers says he is withdrawing because his nomination has become a lightning rod for those with a political agenda." His statements about the background checks wasn't the only obstacle in Southers' path. More HERE

AAPP:  Damn, another nominee gone. What is going on here? This guy, erroll Southers appeared to be highly qualified. more qualified than some of the bigoted Senators on Capitol Hill. 

It's too bad that President Obama keeps letting the bigots get the best of black men who may not be the "light skin negroes" that are acceptable by some in the United States Senate.

Obama administration nominees or members who split, quit, withdrew, or were let go.
