Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis today issued the following statement demanding the resignation of Office of Financial Regulation Commissioner Ronald Rubin.
“After a briefing of the Inspector General’s preliminary findings of the recent allegations against Mr. Rubin and reviewing newly-published news reports including those of sexual harassment allegations at his previous job, I am requesting that he immediately resign the position of Commissioner for the Office of Financial Regulation.“
“If I could remove Mr. Rubin from office myself, I would. But, this is a Cabinet-appointed position that would require Cabinet action. It should not come to that. Mr. Rubin’s actions are alarming and cannot be tolerated in any work environment, especially one of public trust. He should do the right thing and step aside to allow the people’s business to continue to move forward without further distraction.”
