Zinke's Handwritten Resignation Note: A Bear To Read, A Bone To Critics


January 4, 2019

Outgoing Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke entered office on a horse and left via a resignation note he wrote in thick red strokes. He posted a photo of that resignation on Twitter, and an avalanche of criticism soon followed from readers who assailed his penmanship, ethics and industry-friendly track record while managing 500 million acres of public lands.

Zinke's letter was barely legible, but he typed out his missive as well: "It's been a high honor to serve the President and the American People as Interior Secretary. We've restored public lands 'for the benefit & enjoyment of the people,' improved public access & shall never be held hostage again for our energy needs. God bless America & those who defend her."
