Kind of mirrors Obama's style.
He better have an iron clad reason or this guy is toast.

<span style='font-size: 23pt'>Commerce Secretary John Bryson accused in hit-and-run crashes</span>

Authorities are investigating a series of traffic collisions in the San Gabriel Valley involving U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson, authorities said Saturday.

Bryson was found unconscious in his vehicle and has been hospitalized, officials said.

Bryson was driving a Lexus in the 400 block of South San Gabriel Boulevard shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, when he allegedly rear-ended a Buick as it was waiting for a train to pass, according to a statement released by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department and the San Gabriel Police Department.

After briefly stopping to talk to the three men inside the Buick, Bryson left the location in the Lexus and then struck the Buick a second time, authorities said. The men followed Bryson's car and called 911 to ask for police assistance.

Bryson continued to drive his Lexus into Rosemead, which is patrolled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. There, he allegedly crashed into a second vehicle near the intersection of San Gabriel Boulevard and Hellman Avenue.

There authorities found him alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his car.

Bryson was treated at the scene by Los Angeles County firefighters. Authorities said drugs or alcohol do not appear to have played a role in the crash. They said Bryson was cooperative. He was cited for felony hit and run but was not booked into jail because he had been admitted to the hospital. His condition was not known.

According to his official biography, Bryson was chairman of Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison for 18 years until 2008.

"Throughout a distinguished career in which he's led nonprofits, government agencies and large companies, he's been a fierce proponent of alternative energy," President Obama said in announcing Bryson's nomination last year.

"As CEO, he created a competitive power subsidiary, the Mission Group, which expanded across the U.S. and was a global leader in the privatization of power plants and electric systems in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, the Philippines and several European countries," according to the biography. "Bryson has also served as a director on several public, educational and nonprofit boards, including The Boeing Company and The Walt Disney Company. He has also served as an adviser and a director of entrepreneurial and start-up companies including Coda Automotive, Inc. and BrightSource Energy. He was a senior adviser to the global investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR)."

Earlier in his career, Bryson was an environmental lawyer and co-founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

He could not immediately be reached for comment.

It looks like he suffered a seizure.
That does not bode well.

He had a seizure. He was treated for it after the incident. Four years ago, during a board meeting, he passed out from another seizure. Trying to score political points from Sec. Brysons's medical problems is just plain wrong on so many levels but it's typical of the scumbag right wing media and the right wing PAC's.

The seizure wasn't the crime.

Neither was the accident ... but, you will excuse anything with (D) following it's name.

Yes, and I hear all of Washington D.C. is slamming Rove's "Crossroads" for allowing the ugliest of right-wing nasty statements that flooded that site, about what was clearly a medical accident.

PIGS.

I see you have turned into a perfect asshole Fats.

Did you miss my follow up post perchance??

So if he passes out while driving why does he still have a driver license? Its a privilege and not a right after all.
I would think his malady would be considered a danger to both himself and the public while driving.

Pay attention Sev and I'll try to explain it to you so that even you can understand it..

As far as you or I know, this was the first incident where Bryson suffered a seizure while driving. Yes, four years ago, he passed out from a seizure during a meeting. He still had and has a driver license because a.) he'd never had a seizure while driving b.) the seizure at work was an isolated event and I'm sure he consulted with his physicians and was cleared at the time to resume his normal activities.

BTW thanks for the "perfect asshole" comment! I'm proud to be a LIBERAL and proud to be everything that Conservative jerks such as yourself can't stand. If I piss you off then I know I'm doing the right thing! LOL /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

OK class dismissed now, so off is the general direction in which you should fack! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
