Stepping Down

Desiree Rogers Resigns

Crash your White House parties while you still can: White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers will step down next month, according to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Lynn Sweet. “As we turn the corner on the first year,” Rogers said, “this is a good time for me to explore opportunities in the corporate world.” Many blamed Rogers for the breach of security that allowed the Salahis into Obama’s first State Dinner. In her 14 months in Washington, Rogers presided over 330 events.
