The Homeland Security Department's second-in-command resigned, citing personal financial reasons.

Deputy Secretary Michael P. Jackson has had a key role in running the department.

In an e-mail to his staff, Jackson, who earns $168,000 a year, said, "The simple truth, however, is that after over five years of serving with the president's team, I am compelled to depart for financial reasons that I can no longer ignore."
