WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones is resigning amid controversy over past inflammatory statements.
Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs," is linked to efforts suggesting a governmental role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.
Jones issued an apology on Thursday. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones "continues to work in the administration."
The White House issued a statement early Sunday saying Jones had quit the administration.

PS This is how intelligent they are over at Democratic Underground, this was one comment on the resignation of Van Jones:
