It's about time. It's been over a week since we first found out that he was a communist, protested to have a cop killer released from prison and accused white people of poisoning black communities and migrant workers. I can't believe it took him being a "truther" to finally hear calls for his resignation.Republican Congressman Calls on Jones to Resign
Past affiliations and statements by President Obama's "green jobs" adviser has led one Republican congressman to call for Van Jones' resignation.
A Republican congressman is calling for the resignation of President Obama's "green jobs" adviser over new revelations about his past affiliations and statements.
Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana also said Obama should get rid of Van Jones, 40, if the adviser is unwilling to resign.
"His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate," Pence said in a written statement released Friday.
Pence also called on Obama to suspend appointment of additional so-called "czars" until Congress has a chance to examine the background and responsibilities of such individuals, as well as to determine the constitutionality of such appointments.
