Ben Carson and his wife picked out the furniture. He lied. Not that any of that matters under Trump, but resigning is what he should do now.

Carson needs to resign over this. CNN:

Newly released emails cast doubt on claims by Secretary Ben Carson and his spokesman that he had little or no involvement in the purchase of a $31,000 furniture set for his Department of Housing and Urban Development dining room.

Emails show Carson and his wife selected the furniture themselves.

An August email from a career administration staffer, with the subject line "Secretary's dining room set needed," to Carson's assistant refers to "printouts of the furniture the Secretary and Mrs. Carson picked out."

In any other administration....But yeah yeah lying is normal now.
