Alec Dreyer: Not going to take it anymore.
The Harris County DA's office has exonerated Alec Dreyer, the CEO of the Port of Houston Authority, of charges that he misused a port boat for a party and tried to cover it up.

The DA's office issued what Dreyer's lawyer called a "virtually unprecedented" letter saying the charges were not true.

As a result, Dreyer is...quitting.

"I'm proud of what we've accomplished. This experience, however, has shown me that the political arena is not where I want to be," Dreyer said in an open letter. "I have decided not to seek reappointment, but rather to go back to the business world."

Dreyer, who has been with the Port two years, said he will continue to serve until a replacement is found.
