What does it say when the company’s president resigns following a scandal?  What does it say when he or she doesn’t?

“Mitsubishi Motors President to Resign as Japan Auto Scandal Engulfs Suzuki,” The Wall Street Journal, May 19, 2016 B3.  President resigns, taking the blame for the fuel economy and testing scandal at Mitsubishi Motors and Suzuki Motors.

Absent an indictment, this isn’t how presidents act in other countries.  Curious.
