White House Counsel Harriet Miers Resigns
Thursday, January 04, 2007

WASHINGTON — Harriet Miers, President Bush’s failed Supreme Court nominee, has submitted her resignation as White House counsel, the White House announced Thursday.

White House press secretary Tony Snow said the president reluctantly accepted her resignation, which takes effect Jan. 31. He said a search for a successor is under way.

Miers was nominated in October 2005 by President Bush to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, but she dropped out under fire from conservatives who questioned her qualifications and would not support her.

Asked why she was leaving, Snow said: “Basically, she has been here six years.”

It seems like there might be a White House shake up going on – first Negroponte moving to the State Department, now the exiting of Harriett Miers.
