Friday afternoon, the White House announced the resignation of HHS Secretary Tom Price and his replacement of Don Wright as the acting secretary.
His resignation follows numerous questions related to his use of private jets and their mounting cost to the US taxpayer.
Politico first broke the story of Price’s use of the charter planes more than a week ago. Price, who was sworn in in February and was the former chairman of the House budget committee, served as secretary for a little more than seven months.
