Earlier today, Governor Bush asked for and received the resignation of James Crosby, Secretary of Corrections. Bush asked for Crosby's resignation after he became part of a far-reaching investigation into possible criminal activity among prison system employees. Although we have not yet confirmed it, it is our understanding that Crosby was arrested by the FBI earlier today.
Bush made Colonel (Ret) James McDonough the interim Secretary of Corrections, effective immediately.
