See below for some Virginia reactions, as they come in, to the resignation of slimeball Alex Acosta as also-slimeball Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary. One down, a gazillion more to go, I guess…
Acosta was never fit to serve in the Cabinet — his departure is the right thing for our country. Now it’s time to focus on finally securing justice for survivors of Epstein’s abuse and getting a Labor Secretary who will stand up for workers and trafficking victims.

Acosta’s resignation is long overdue and he should have never served in Trump’s Cabinet. Tragically, his actions allowed Epstein to exploit more victims.

ALEX ACOSTA RESIGNS. The inevitable—even in this administration—happens.
