The media is reporting that White House Social Secretary Desirée Rogers resigned today. The media and republicans had been pushing for her dismissal after at least two uninvited people were able to gain access to a White House function a few months ago. Although it's primarily the job of the Secret Service to provide screening for entry to the White House Ms. Rogers was still blamed by many.
So apparently Obama didn't want it to appear that he threw another African American, Van Jones was the first, under the bus so he waited until the media cycle changed a few times and then asked for her resignation. Shame on Obama for letting the republican crazies and the media push him around and shame on him for so easily dismissing African Americans from his administration.
