Housing secretary to resign: report
The U.S. housing secretary will resign Monday morning under pressure after accusations of improper allocation of federal contracts, the Wall Street Journal reported in its Monday edition.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson will step down on Monday morning, the paper reported. The department announced late Sunday that Jackson will make a statement to the press on Monday morning.
Jackson has faced calls for his resignation after lawmakers have said he behaved improperly in awarding federal contracts.
