We The People:

The only question left unanswered here is did she take the fall and get fired or will her level of incompetency lead her to a higher position with more pay in Obamaville?

Working with Obama, failing upward is not problematic.

OPM director Katherine Archuleta resigns in wake of data breach

Hacking of employee info worse than the government let on. 

DEVELOPING: WASHINGTON — U.S. personnel chief Katherine Archuleta resigned Friday in the wake of massive data breach that allowed hackers to steal the records of more than 21 million people under her watch, Fox News confirmed.

Archuleta submitted her resignation to President Obama Friday morning. Her resignation is effective at the close of business today.

(Bummer, as a Patriot I would have done the job for free.)

“This is the absolute right call,” House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz said in a written statement following the announcement.

“OPM needs a competent, technically savvy leader to manage the biggest cybersecurity crisis in this nation’s history.

The IG has been warning about security lapses at OPM for almost a decade. This should have been addressed much, much sooner but I appreciate the President doing what’s best now.”

Calls for Archuleta to go grew in recent weeks following a massive government data breach on her watch.

Less than 24 hours earlier, Archuleta had rebuffed demands that she resign, telling reporters she had no intention of leaving and that her agency was doing everything it could to address concerns about the safety of data in its hands.
