Jones Resignation Leaves Unanswered Questions

Ad Feedback

President Obama has not commented publicly on the quiet resignation of his "green jobs czar" over the Labor Day weekend.

Van Jones stepped down after coming under increased pressure from his long track record of controversial statements and associations.
During the 90s, Jones belonged to a self-described "revolutionary" California-based group called "Storm," which was committed to Marxism.
More recently in 2008, Jones railed against "white polluters and white environmentalists" saying that a green economy "could become an engine for transforming" American society.
Then, late last week information surfaced that Jones had signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 terror attacks.

Phil Kerpen with Americans for Prosperity joined CBN News to discuss Jones' resignation.

Kerpen broke the Van Jones story on Fox News after doing a Web search on him for a report on green jobs. Kerpen talked about whether he thinks the Obama administration knew of Jones' radical leanings and appointed him anyway.
