BREAKING: Desiree Rogers to Step Down

One wrecked State Dinner is one too many apparently.

Desiree Rogers is stepping down as the White House social secretary. According to Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times:

“As we turn the corner on the first year,” Rogers told me, “this is a good time for me to explore opportunities in the corporate world.”

Rogers told me it has been “an honor and a privilege to serve this president and First Lady, in what has certainly been a historic presidency.”

Rogers, a friend of the First Couple for years, was one of the first Obama administration appointees.

And when she says "step down," we'll assume that to mean Rahm had a chit-chat with Rogers.
