A story surfaced this morning of Commerce Secretary John Bryson being involved in multiple car crashes in California, including a hit-and-run. Initial reports say this has the signs of a drunk driving incident, but investigators say drugs and alcohol were not a factor and that instead he had a seizure of some kind.
It seems very possible that one way or another this could lead to his resignation and a return of the Commerce Cabinet Crisis.
