When a Resignation Comes in Close Proximity to a Scandal

Lee Roberts has been Governor Pat McCrory's budget director for only 16 months, but he announced his resignation on Thursday very soon after he was implicated in paving the way for the pay-to-play prison maintenance contract that has been dogging and besmirching the already besmirched McCrory administration.

According to the News&Observer,
After Thursday’s announcement, Roberts said that neither the prison contract issue nor the high-pressure politics of the job prompted him to resign.
You can buy that (along with the large stone bridge I have stored in my garage) if you want to, and welcome to your credulity.
