Rumors on the Twitter-nets: Mel Martinez to Resign Early
Roger Stone predicts; Mel Martinez resigns soon; Crist appoints caretaker - Jim Smith - and announces his candidacy for Sen.

We're assuming the Jim Smith in question would be the Republican former Florida secretary of state and attorney general.
