Schwarzenegger Latina appointee resigns after paid speeches come to light

“A member of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cabinet resigned this afternoon after Times inquiries about income she received for giving speeches to private companies, including some that were doing business with her agency,” according to the L.A. Times.

“Schwarzenegger’s spokesman said State and Consumer Services Agency head Rosario Marin had broken administration policy, which does not permit the governor’s appointees to receive income for making speeches. Marin offered her resignation during conversations with the governor’s staff, according to Aaron McLear, Schwarzenegger’s spokesman, and it was accepted.”

One down…several more to go.  In particular I want to see John Cruz resign ASAP.  All of these lame greedy Hispanic 100 members need to get the Hell out of Sacramento.  They don’t serve the people…they work only to enrich themselves.  They are entirely offensive.

“Marin, whose state salary is $175,000 a year, was paid to address pharmaceutical companies within months of her agency’s push last year to reduce state oversight of prescription drugs.”

What a creep!  Good luck finding a real job Rosario.
