PHARMA/POLICY/POLITICS: Well at least he gets to put “former FDA Commissioner” on his resume!

So just like that after a contentious time getting confirmed, FDA Commissioner Lester Crawford resigns, after only formally being in the job for less than three months (although effectively having basically run the agency for three years). I wonder what further skeletons have crawled out of his closet?

Get ready for more confirmation fatigue as the Administration searches for someone else ready to screw their reputation by placing politics (and deeply unpleasant, mean spirited politics at that) before science.
