A New York City police union leader who’s clashed with officials over incendiary tweets and hard-line tactics agreed to resign on Tuesday after federal agents raided his home and the union’s office.
Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins had been asked to resign by the executive board of the union, according to the SBA.
“Like all of us, Ed Mullins is entitled to the presumption of innocence, and we ask you to withhold judgement until all the facts have been established,” the executive board wrote in a statement sent to union members.
The board explained they didn’t want the day-to-day operations of the union to be impacted by the investigation into Mullins.

It's easy to stage conflicts where there aren't any. Crony ready to retire? Let's pretend something was done about his crimes.

Two conservative members of Biden's Supreme Court commission resign​

In a statement, the White House expressed its appreciation for the work conducted by both professors on the commission.


Two prominent conservative members of President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court commission resigned Friday, following the committee releasing its draft report.
According to The Hill, Harvard law professor Jack Goldsmith and University of Virginia professor Caleb Nelson both resigned.
In a statement to The Hill, Nelson said “it was an honor for me to be part of the Commission.” Goldsmith, on the other hand, did not respond to requests for comment.
In a statement, the White House expressed its appreciation for the work conducted by both professors on the commission.
“We respect their decision and very much appreciate the significant contributions that they made during the last 5 months in terms of preparing for these deliberations,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said.
The resignations just come one day after their committee released its preliminary findings warning against the idea of court-packing, and advocating for term limits for federal justices.
Many progressive members of the commission expressed their concern over the fact that the report only gave arguments against court-packing, rather than giving both sides of the issue.
It is not yet clear if any of the suggestions laid out in the report will be implemented by Congress.

The chief election official for Georgia's most populous county has announced he will resign at the end of 2021 as the county continues to face attacks, conspiracy theories and a state-run performance review following the 2020 election.
Fulton County elections director Rick Barron submitted a letter of resignation Wednesday, defending the work of his office throughout a challenging election cycle that saw record turnout, an unprecedented amount of absentee ballots and a global pandemic that decimated both the number of polling places and election workers to staff them.
"Under the intense scrutiny of the last year, I believe our team has performed with grace and professionalism," he said. "Even in the midst of threats to our personal safety, we have continued to make the interests of Fulton County voters our highest priority."
Barron, who has worked for Fulton for over eight years, helmed an elections office that has been plagued by problems over the years, including long lines caused by machine issues and errors with absentee voting. In the June 2020 primary delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, polling place locations backed out of serving as voting sites — reducing the number of polls available — and poll workers unfamiliar with new voting equipment led to hourslong lines that garnered national attention.
But after increased funding from the county and a push towards absentee and in-person early voting, the county saw shorter lines and few problems in November.
The Fulton elections board voted to fire Barron earlier this year, but the Board of Commissioners reversed the decision.
Fulton has also been the epicenter of conspiracy theories, lawsuits and false claims about the presidential race that saw President Joe Biden narrowly defeat Donald Trump.
"Since the November 2020 Election, we have participated in multiple reviews, audits, and litigation — all of which have failed to identify wrongdoing or malfeasance," Barron's resignation letter reads. "We stand behind our work and I know the team is well prepared for the 2022 Elections."
Under a new state law passed earlier this year, Republican lawmakers have requested a performance review of the election superintendent, which by law is Fulton's five-person bipartisan election board. The review is ongoing and state officials said the process was "cooperative." While the State Election Board could temporarily suspend the board and appoint a replacement, the likely outcome is a plan to improve problems identified with the county's election processes.

Nov 17 (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) said on Wednesday Chief Financial Officer Frank D'Amelio, 63, would retire after nearly 15 years at the company.
The drugmaker has started an external search for the successor of D'Amelio, who also served as executive vice president of global supply.

During his tenure, Pfizer slimmed down its business through sales to focus on its newer, patent-protected portfolio of profitable drugs such as cancer treatment Ibrance.
D'Amelio played crucial roles in the company's 2011 sale of its capsule-making unit to private equity firm KKR & Co (KKR.N) for nearly $2.38 billion and the divestiture of the nutrition business to Nestle (NESN.S) a year later.

He also led the spin-off of Pfizer's off-patent branded drugs business in 2019 to combine it with generic drugmaker Mylan NV .
Mike McDermott, who headed the production and supply of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, will take the role of executive vice president and chief global supply officer.

President Trump: “GREAT NEWS FOR ARIZONA, Senator Paul Boyer, a RINO Obstructionist, Is Done.”​

By Jordan Conradson
Published November 27, 2021 at 7:00am

Arizona State Senator Paul Boyer, “a RINO if there ever was one”, will not run for reelection next year and President Trump has given him a special farewell from office.
Paul Boyer has been nothing but trouble for Arizona Republicans and the Arizona audit.
President Trump has publicly shamed him in the past for his failure to represent his constituents.
