Jay Carney Resigns As White House Press Secretary Published: May 30, 2014

Staffing shuffles were the name of the game in the White House Friday, with President Obama making the surprise announcement that his chief spokesperson, Jay Carney, was stepping down just hours after Obama came to the mics to announce the resignation of Veteran’s Administration chief Eric Shinseki, according to BuzzFeed.
