Eric Holder

Another high ranking member of President Barack Obama’s inner circle has jumped ship.

NPR.org reports that Eric Holder Jr., the nation’s first black U.S. attorney general, has announced he will be stepping down as soon as his successor is confirmed. Holder, 63, was hospitalized in February after suffering shortness of breath and dizziness at work. He is also plagued by recurring back problems.

From NPR.org:

Eric Holder Jr., the nation’s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and 5 1/2 years of fights with Republicans in Congress.

Two sources familiar with the decision tell NPR that Holder, 63, intends to leave the Justice Department as soon as his successor is confirmed, a process that could run through 2014 and even into next year. A former U.S. government official says Holder has been increasingly “adamant” about his desire to leave soon for fear that he otherwise could be locked in to stay for much of the rest of President Obama’s second term.

    I thought it was well known that they don’t make that much money. The President’s salary is pennies when you take into account all of the work that goes into being president. :yes: BUT I also would like to believe that those that go into that line of work don’t do it for the monetary aspects.

  • Ms Peaches

    Holder realized that this was not worth his health. Good decision. I wonder if it resulted from the fact he could put hands on those crackas. Thats too much ( want to kick as-s )to just keep in side. How long could anybody last hearing people talk sh-t and you have to keep your cool. I hope he is resting well.

    Yeah then get fired and have to start all over again. 😆

    There’s pros n cons but being a 20-something working in the Fed, the benefits far outweigh those “pennies” so to speak. JOB Security for one. After last year’s furlough, I got the wages I didn’t get during those 2 pay periods back. I don’t make pennies on the dollar tho 😆 but I get what you’re saying.

    Many contractors can’t say the same :tea:

    He does looks just like Oprah’s boo.Good luck to him.

    About Amber: cheating on more than one occasion is a deal breaker for me. So if we are married a year and caught out there more than once, you got to roll. Period. For me though. Maybe she really is divorcing him over another chick. Either way, whatever.

    @Gigi – My inference was related to licensed professionals such as Holder and West; i.e. Phd, MD, and JD’s.

    Been fortunate enough to do several years abroad as a GS domestically and internationally. However; the difference in yearly income (increases are drastically different)

    maybe you can temp a few days a week or get you a holiday job. call some temp agencies now (since you are clearly bored at home 😆 ) and tell them to set you up for January or whenever you are ready. do the paperwork and stuff now so you can hop right in when the time comes. :yes:

    have you considered those work at home jobs? they usually prefer night/weekend hours. sometimes when you call a customer service line (that isnt outsourced to india) you are connected to somebody’s house. :yes: they give you all the info to read from a screen.
