From the Washington Post:
As you know by now, GSA chief Lurita Doan has resigned. She said she did so at the request of the White House, but no one has been able to answer the question: Why now?
After all, both she and the White House stood firm in the face of intense criticism for almost a year, since the Office of Special Counsel urged the president to discipline her “to the fullest extent” for alleged violations of the Hatch Act. She has kept her head low for the most part in recent months.
