U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson has resigned less than two weeks after being treated for a seizure that caused him to get into two minor car accidents on June 9. Bryson, 68, who has been in office since October 2011, was found unconscious in his car, after the second of two collisions, police said. He took medical leave June 11. In a statement, President Obama thanked Bryson for "his service over the past months," and wished him well.
