WASHINGTON — A leader of Democrat Barack Obama’s vice presidential research team has resigned amid criticism over his personal loan deals.
Obama announced in a statement Wednesday that Jim Johnson was stepping aside to avoid distracting from the vetting process.
Johnson served on the vetting team with former first daughter Caroline Kennedy and former Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder.
