Criticism leads to Parker's ouster - The Clarion-Ledger

Criticism leads to Parker's ouster - The Clarion-Ledger: "The assistant secretary of the Army, Mississippi's former U.S. Rep. Mike Parker, was forced out Wednesday after he criticized the Bush administration's proposed spending cuts on Army Corps of Engineers' water projects, members of Congress said.

'Apparently he was asked to resign,' said U.S. Rep. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a member of the House Appropriations Committee's energy and water development subcommittee that oversees the corps' budget."
