The Commerce Department's profile of Bryson, who has been the president's commerce secretary since October 2011, describes him as, "a key member of Mr. Obama's economic team working to implement the administration's top economic priority: accelerating job creation. He works to strengthen the economic recovery and U.S. competitiveness, and he serves as the voice for the business community in the President's Cabin

Bryson was found unconscious . . .
from the reuters article
Otherwise he would have just kept "running", apparently.
Will be interesting to see if msm in the US pick this story up.
I don't think Obama is going to be kept on for another term.

eta: looks like it is going to wide distribution

I was thinking that too, but sadly my brain has been altered from reading to many CT., lol

This,


"a key member of Mr. Obama's economic team working to implement the administration's top economic priority:


We all know how well that is going.

This is a really strange story. I had the same reaction as other posters. Found unconscious, no alcohol or drugs, at 5:30 in the afternoon in broad daylight. If he was having a medical emergency, then why would he leave the scene of the first accident? It doesn't make sense at the moment.

ETA: I just found this: U.S. Commerce secretary suffered a seizure: spokeswoman


U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson suffered a seizure, a department spokeswoman said in a statement on Monday after police in California announced he was being investigated for several hit-and-run car crashes.


He has a seizure and leaves the scene of the first accident? I'm not really buying that. A seizure is a serious event. Surely, he would have had enough sense to know that he needed immediate medical attention!

Oh, and he has this seizure on Saturday in Los Angeles, found unconscious, taken to the hospital in Los Angeles and is back in Washington on Monday????

This still is not making sense to me.

According to LA Times

First car he hit was waiting for a train. He got out, talked with them and then hit the car again as he was leaving.
They, the people in the first car, followed him and called 911. Then he wrecked into another car.

This is a fishy story.

Ins't political theater in damage-control mode some of the most entertaining stuff?

Lacking investigative journalism (i.e. the "other team" paying to create an alternate narrative) we may never know how the opposition wants us to think of this.

Forget the facts..., those aren't for public consumption.

My God, do they even care to try when feeding us a bullcrap excuse anymore? The government is totally covering his ass. You DO NOT have a seizure and then get out of the car to talk to the person you hit.

He was even 'cited' for FELONY hit and run. Thats just a ticket. All of us would be in jail with a 50,000 dollar bond set.

Freaking ridiculous, these bastards get away with anything. ...just look at all the comments in this yahoo story at the bottom. No one is buying this crap.

This is one of the most pathetic cover up attempts I've ever seen.

Let me see if I can piece this together:

Bryson is having a seizure and rear ends a car.
He talks to the people, then hits the car again while leaving.
Drives approx. 60 mph to a nearby town.
Hits another car and is found unconscious by police.

No drugs or alcohol were involved? No attempt was made to interview the people he talked to? He was allowed to return to Washington and not taken to jail? The district attorney's office hasn't decided whether to file charges or not?

If it were any one of us, you can bet your boots we would be sitting in a cell with black and blue marks from head to foot. It's not clear how the incident will affect his job because they haven't decided how to spin it, yet. I'm sure some hush money will be handed out, the DA will be bought off and nothing will come of this.

This sickens me to no end. The above posters are correct, these jerks can and do get away with anything. I doubt any charges will be filed, nor will the toxicology produce any results. He deserves the same punishment as any Joe Blow would get, but nothing will come of it.

As a matter-of-fact, I'm going to use this for my DWI defense - "occifer, I was trying to get home as quickly as I could because I was having a siezure and trying to get home to call 911!!!"

What sucks is you can't use that as a prescedent if it hasn't been seen in open trial. In this case he was just cited, so it can't be used as a defense in court.

Since when do you just receive a ticket for a FELONY?
Oh wait....since this incident I guess now felony hit-and-runs will just receive citations?
I don't wanna live on this planet anymore.
