Obama Commerce Secretary Charged In Hit And Run

Authorities now investigating the details of Obama administration official who hit another car multiple times and then drove away.

Commerce Secretary John Bryson accused in hit-and-run crashes


Authorities are investigating a series of traffic collisions in the San Gabriel Valley involving U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson, authorities said Saturday.

Bryson was found unconscious in his vehicle and has been hospitalized, officials said.

Bryson was driving a Lexus in the 400 block of South San Gabriel Boulevard shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, when he allegedly rear-ended a Buick as it was waiting for a train to pass, according to a statement released by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and the San Gabriel Police Department.

Bryson was treated at the scene by Los Angeles County firefighters. Authorities said drugs or alcohol do not appear to have played a role in the crash. They said Bryson was cooperative. He was cited for felony hit and run but was not booked into jail because he had been admitted to the hospital. His condition was not known.

“Throughout a distinguished career in which he’s led nonprofits, government agencies and large companies, he’s been a fierce proponent of alternative energy,” President Obama said in announcing Bryson’s nomination last year.

    • Is this the same Bryson, chairman of BrightSource Energy that planned to lobby Obama’s WH for $1.6 billion loan guarantee for the Ivanpah solar project in California. If it is, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

    • Let’s hold judgement. They said above that alcohol/drugs were not involved. I read another source that indicated he may have had a seizure which could explain his behavior. If this is true then no charges would be filed.

      As I say, I’ll wait for results, not wild speculation.

    • Sounds like a lot of ‘walking back’ statements have been issued to cover his (and Barry’s) butt. I’ll wait for test results to come back before condemning him. In the meantime, was he driving one of those hybrid cars that run on alternative energy? Just wondering…. ;D

    • Perhaps he thought he was being followed al a Wheeler, Breitbart, Pittman…and became rattled someone was out to take him out…not to a ball game ….just Out — so he ouldnt testify about these stolen green monies…because you can be certain…those green dollars did not all go where there said they did…probably plenty into Zobamunists campaign kitty….Obama does not need to raise campaign monies…he needs to appear he is and has support coming from somewhere…Beacuse no one except radical socialists, communists and Black Liberation Communists back this man who calls himself Barack Obama…

      • Its so funny you say this. I didn’t want to sound too conspiracy theorist, but I had the same thought initially. Glad you said it first. lol

        Apparently the police let him leave the state after he left the hospital. When he was driving he was without a security detail. I guess he didn’t get the memo that California isn’t that safe a place to be if you may have information that is detrimental to the Obama Administration. Just speculating of course. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

        With the number of people who have all the sudden died, people who spoke out against Obama, we need to watch the news for who is next.

      • Raila Odinga immediately came to mind when I heard about this deadly crash. Then, when I read the article on Breitbart, the following jumped right out at me:

        “The death of Saitoti is a ‘great tragedy that has befallen our country at this time as we are making elaborate preparations to hold peaceful elections,’ Prime Minister Raila Odinga said at the scene of the crash, a forest in the city’s outskirts.”

        So, “peaceful” elections are coming up… I wonder if Odinga is looking for a new position. Considering how he came to be Prime Minister after losing the election for President (even with Obama campaigning for him) it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Odinga was involved in causing this “accident.”
