After rumors swirled for months that White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers would either resign or be fired after the White House party crasher fiasco, she has just announced she is resigning:

“As we turn the corner on the first year, this is a good time for me to explore opportunities in the corporate world,” Rogers told Chicago Sun-Times columnist Lynn Sweet, adding that it was “an honor and a privilege to serve this president and first lady, in what has certainly been a historic presidency.”
