Former Georgian President Saakashvili Quits As Ukraine Odessa Governor

New York Times: Mikheil Saakashvili Resigns Post in Ukraine, Citing Corruption

MOSCOW — Mikheil Saakashvili, a former president of Georgia who was brought into the Ukraine government to set an example of transparency and clean government, resigned on Monday and accused Ukraine’s president of supporting corruption.

Mr. Saakashvili, who was appointed governor of the Black Sea region of Odessa by President Petro O. Poroshenko in May 2015, said he was leaving because of the central government’s unrelenting obstruction of his efforts to root out graft.

“The president personally supports two clans,” Mr. Saakashvili told a group of journalists. “Odessa can only develop once Kiev will be freed from these bribe takers, who directly patronize organized crime and lawlessness.”

In a terse statement, Mr. Poroshenko’s office said it would accept Mr. Saakashvili’s resignation once it had been submitted by the cabinet.

JabberJay is always laughing his ass of like a GD jackwagon.

Resigning your position is riskier than JabberJay lets on.

If Saakashvili is not in office he cannot grant favors. Many if not nearly all 'players' may ignore him from now until he dies.

If Saakashvili resigned office and was not involved in politics as a columnnist, pundit, organizer or whatever, he would be like the person who does not vote.

Usually we say to the person, who does not vote, then do not bitch. I guess Jabber would rather Saakashvili not hold office, not vote, not speak or do anything.

We all know Jabber is the smartest guy Jabber knows.

Saakashvilli can't go home to Georgia, there are still arrest warrants out for him, he can't visit the EU, there are Interpol warrants out for him.

90% of Nuland/CIA/Rice appointed "technocratic reformers", Ukrainian and recently appointed Ukrainian citizens have resigned, in less than a year.

Saakashvili's just resigning before the house collapses, so that with Kolomlyeski's money he can take a run at the Presidency as a "Reform" cantidate.
