Bryson to take medical leave

(CNN) – U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson, under investigation for possible felony hit-and-run after allegedly causing two weekend car accidents in California, will take a medical leave of absence "as he undergoes tests and evaluations," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday night.

A Commerce Department spokeswoman said earlier Monday that Bryson, 68, had suffered a seizure when the two accidents occurred Saturday.

    I saw the conspiracy folks from the right-wing trying to make something evil out of this accident. Good "Christians" each and every one...

    I hope he is okay. That's scary.
    To all the haters out there, at least Bryson didn't shoot a friend in the face while murdering caged ibrds and then waited 24 hours to sober up and get away with what anyone else, the little people, would have gone to jail for and probably still be in jaIl. The war criminal with a real heart at present.

    I wish him a full recovery.
    I am gratified that this incident couldn't be used by the hate spinners as a sidebar involving the President, even though they sure tried to do so yesterday with a fraction of the facts.

    Excellent points altogether, you simply gained a logo new reader. What could you suggest about your publish that you just made a few days in the past? Any sure?
