Arizona vets director asks Brewer for job back

PHOENIX -- The ex-director of Arizona's Department of Veterans' Services is asking Gov. Jan Brewer to allow him to rescind his resignation, but the governor's office says it won't.

Director Joey Strickland was forced to resign Tuesday after the governor's office learned he had hired a former Arizona state representative he had previously been ordered not to employ. Former Rep. Terri Proud also lost her state job after questioning female troops' ability to serve in combat in an interview with a news reporter.

In a letter released by Brewer's office Thursday, Strickland says he was told not to hire Proud almost a year ago when she was a lawmaker but wasn't told never to hire her in the future.

Brewer spokesman Matthew Benson says the governor will not rehire Strickland.
