"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones, special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, said in a statement announcing his resignation just after midnight Saturday. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."
Jones is a lawyer. As such, he ought to know that the truth is an absolute defense. And quoting someone accurately isn't a lie. Don't worry about him, though -- I'm sure MSNBC is hiring.
