Gary Grindler, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's chief of staff, will resign Friday as part of the fall out from the botched "Fast and Furious" gunrunning scheme. Prior to serving as Holder’s top aide, Grindler was acting deputy attorney general and oversaw the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which led the program that allowed hundreds of weapons to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. He joins several others who have stepped down since the Justice Department's inspector general issued a report recommending disciplinary action for 14 employees.
