Washington Post Executive Charles Pelton Resigns.

According to the Politico Washington Post executive Charles Pelton 'resigned' today. It seems somebody had to take the heat for this summer's scandal where the Post attempted to sell access to Washington's elite power brokers. The scheme went like this, Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth had an idea for exclusive "salons" at her home where for as much as $250,000, the Post offered lobbyists and association executives off-the-record access to "those powerful few" — Obama administration officials, members of Congress, and even the paper’s own reporters and editors.

Pelton was made the fall guy. Well, good luck Chuck.
