US State Department employee, who was convicted of distorting information about past work and showing a fake cover of Time magazine with her photo, resigned on Monday, Daily Mail reported.
Mina Chang came into the public spotlight earlier this month when NBC News revealed her questionable credentials.
“Resigning is the only acceptable moral and ethical option for me at this time,” Chang wrote in her resignation letter, which was obtained by Politico. Her resignation was effective immediately.
The channel also noted that Chan published an interview on his page on the Internet in 2017, in which he demonstrated the fake cover of the American magazine Time. She claimed that the editorial board placed her portrait on the cover because she praised her achievements in the use of drones in responding to emergencies. Representatives of Time told reporters NBC that this cover is "not genuine."
Chang spoke about her fake Time cover in a 2017 clip, telling an interviewer who congratulated her on the feat that it came about due to her work with drones.
A business partner of Secretary of State Pompeo, Brian Bulatao, reportedly donated $5,500 to her fundraising efforts but she has no clear ties to Trump's campaign.
