Via TPMM, the Director of DOJ's Civil Rights Division has resigned.
Wan J. Kim, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, today announced his resignation, effective at the end of this month. President Bush nominated Mr. Kim to the position on June 16, 2005, and the Senate unanimously confirmed his appointment on November 4, 2005. Mr. Kim, whose career in the Department of Justice has spanned more than a decade, started in the Department of Justice Honors Program as a trial attorney in the Criminal Division, and later served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia.

Um, today is August 23. The "end of the month," August 31, is approximately 6 business days away.
Where I come from in the business world, when a top executive quits with less than a month's notice, he's trying to hide something, usually the imminent collapse of his business unit. When a top executive quits with less than two week's notice, that thing he's hiding may involve legal repercussions.
Mr. Kim is getting out of Dodge in an awfully big hurry.
