Chicago mayor Daley defends ex-White House social secretary

Font Size:

Mayor Richard Daley on Saturday stood up for resigning White House social secretary Desiree Rogers, who is stepping down next month.

Daley called Rogers a “great friend of mine,” who did a “tremendous job” in a position she didn’t have to take.

And he asserted she bore no blame for the Nov. 24 White House security breach that had many calling for her resignation since.

“There’s only one group responsible for the security for the White House and the Presidency… the Secret Service,” Daley said, speaking at the opening of a new health center on the West Side.
