Mass. Office Brings Down Keroack

Last November, the White House appointed Eric Keroack to head family planning programs within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Keroack had previously worked at Boston's A Woman's Concern [corrected], which promotes abstinence instead of birth control, so reproductive-rights groups were not too thrilled.

Apparently, the Massachusetts Office of Medicaid took some sort of action against Keroack, presumably related to his work at A Woman's Choice -- whatever the complaint, it has not been made public.

Yesterday, Keroack abruptly resigned, and HHS cited the Massachusetts action as the reason.

Undoubtedly, this will trigger some disclosures relating to A Woman's Concern's activities. Should be interesting to watch.
