What finally drove “cookie” Krongard to quit? Under normal circumstances being credibly accused of actively covering up departmental abuses that range from ordinary contracting fraud to slavery would do it. If that didn’t work his, how should we say, innovative personnel policies would finish the job.
Bot no, that didn’t do it. Even being caught lying to Congress didn’t have the impact that it usually would, although the certainty that his own brother planned to sell Cookie down the river no doubt made a dignified exit look more appealing.
