DeEvening Links: Down with distractions

Down with nosy reporters and civic activists! (Sarah L. Voisin - THE WASHINGTON POST)
After 10 crazy days, Andi Pringle has resigned as Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s deputy chief of staff, thus prompting another rollout of an embattled-Vince pic. “I now realize that I have become a distraction from the important work of your administration,” Pringle wrote in her resignation letter. “I have always placed the interest of the greater good above my personal desires and wishes. At this point I feel the greater good will be served by me stepping aside.” Said Gray in a statement, “I appreciate her taking responsibility for her actions.”
