She has a statement at her place. Here is part…
I would like to make very clear that the campaign did not push me out,
nor was my resignation the back-end of some arrangement made last week.
This was a decision I made, with the campaign’s reluctant support,
because my remaining the focus of sustained ideological attacks was
inevitably making me a liability to the campaign, and making me
increasingly uncomfortable with my and my family’s level of exposure.
understand that there will be progressive bloggers who feel I am making
the wrong decision, and I offer my sincerest apologies to them. One of
the hardest parts of this decision was feeling as though I’m letting
down my peers, who have been so supportive.
Shakes need not apologize to this progressive blogger. I understand her decision. The past weeks must have been hell.
