AceShowbiz - %cBrian Williams% has left his position at the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation Board of Directors, the organization announces. The suspended "Nightly News" anchor resigned after serving on the board since September 2006.
The announcement was made amidst mounting criticisms directed at Williams after he was caught lying about coming under direct enemy fire in Iraq. He is currently facing internal investigation at NBC and has been suspended for six months without pay.
Medal of Honor is the highest military honor in the U.S. The Foundation was founded by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society which is made up of the living Medal of Honor recipients. The organization gave no reason for Williams' exit and the anchor remains silent as he is asked not to give any interviews during his suspension.
