Top U.S. nuclear regulator to resign

Embattled Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko announced Monday he is resigning.

Jaczko, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, has been under fire after Democratic and Republican members of the commission complained about his management style earlier this year.

In his statement Monday, Jaczko said he would stay on until a successor is confirmed by Congress.

    No big deal here. He's a lousy people person who treated his staff and subordinates with no respect. Apparently he was super disrespectful to women on his staff which didn't sit well with the administration. Not every political appointee is a good manager!
