Hawaii Health Director Dr. Neal Palafox told the truth, that there is no proof that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, and then abruptly quit. Was he forced out by Abercrombie?
I wonder if this will be brought up on MSNBC?
AP) HONOLULU - Interim Hawaii Health Director Dr. Neal Palafox abruptly quit Wednesday, the first of new Gov. Neil Abercrombie's Cabinet appointees to leave.
The reason for Palafox's resignation was a mystery, and he wouldn't say whether he was asked to resign.
Abercrombie's office said Palafox asked the Democratic governor to withdraw his nomination.
"Gov. Abercrombie accepted Dr. Palafox's request and will make a new appointment for the Health Director as soon as possible," spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said in a statement.
The liberals are grasping at straws, trying to find a legitimate reason for Palafox's abrupt departure, but have so far come up with nothing.
Palafox, 58, said he was surprised when he heard TV news reports citing anonymous sources claiming he was under investigation for medical billing fraud.
"I get handed these e-mails about investigations and so forth, but I have no clue. I'm lost," Palafox said.
University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine Dean Jerris Hedges said the school is unaware of any pending investigation. Hedges said Palafox will return to his job at the school, where he was chairman of the Department of Family Medicine before his nomination.
The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs said it had no complaints about Palafox over the last five years.
