Pentagon personnel chief steps down amid probe

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon's undersecretary for personnel has resigned amid an investigation into complaints of waste and mismanagement.
A retired Marine major general, Clifford Stanley plans to leave in the next two weeks. Pentagon officials said Stanley's decision to resign was his own and that the investigation was not a factor in his decision.
Reports began leaking out about several complaints filed against him this summer with the Defense Department's inspector general. National Journal reported in August that Pentagon officials began investigating Stanley after he was accused of being abusive to staff, wasting money on a new conference room and mismanaging programs for wounded service members.

When Stanley took over in February 2010, he was tasked with bringing in new talent and re-energizing an office with a moribund and overly bureaucratic reputation, The Washington Post reported this summer, after allegations of misconduct first surfaced.
But Stanley's controversial management style, by all accounts, quickly drew critics.
Stanley "felt he had done his utmost to carry out the mandate he was given," a Pentagon statement reads "and that he had arrived at the point where the next steps could be carried out most effectively by a successor," according to a Pentagon statement.
Stanley's deputy, Jo Ann Rooney, will take over on an interim basis until a successor is named.
