What Happened:

#Trump's Labor Secretary Alex Acosta announced earlier today that he would step down next week.

But Why?:

Since Jerry Epstein's arrests last week over sex trafficking charges, the amount of attention brought on renewed scrutiny of Alex Acosta's 2008 plea deal with Epstein. While serving as a federal prosecutor in Florida, Acosta made what many considered to be an excessively lenient deal for the type of sex crimes Epstein was accused of. Some critics even claim the 2008 Epstein plea deal even broke the law, because Epstein's victims were not informed of the arrangement.

Epstein's 2008 Plea Deal:

According to ABC News, Epstein merely served a 13- month stint in the Palm Beach County Jail and had to register as a sex offender. Epstein was provided a private room and was allowed out of jail, for 12 hours a day, for six days out of the week to go to work.
