Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta resigned amid mounting criticism of his handling of a sex crime case involving Jeffrey Epstein over a decade ago. Acosta brokered a deal with Epstein's lawyers involving a shorter prison sentence that allowed Epstein to work at his office 6 days a week. Epstein is facing new federal charges for sex crimes involving numerous underage girls.
