Rep. John Doolittle, facing escalating legal uncertainties because of his connection to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, announced Thursday that he is stepping down from his position on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.How SHOCKING!!!!
Doolittle is the only California member of the panel's Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee which allocates money for flood control projects. His departure comes just as the Congress is ramping up work on improvements to Folsom Dam necessary to bring 200-year flood protection to Sacramento and other levee improvements along the Sacramento River.
Doolittle requested a temporary leave of absence in a letter to House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-OH.
