Shanna Moakler ResignsIn the aftermath of the press conference yesterday where Donald Trump allowed Carrie Prejean to remain as Miss California, Miss USA pageant director Shanna Moakler has chosen to resign. From Us Magazine:

Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization.

I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth. I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.

I’m glad at least one individual can leave this fiasco with their integrity intact.
