After HUGE Federal Records HACKING, Obama FIRES Woman He Hired to Count MINORITIES at The OPM
We still don’t know how big the cyber attack was on the Office of Personnel Management because every few weeks they announce that it was bigger than they thought before. But as a scapegoat, today the Obama administration fired Archuleta, the idiot they hired to oversee the office.
As some have pointed out on Twitter, she was a diversity hire added just for the purpose of counting minorities in the office:
This morning, Katherine Archuleta was sworn-in as the 10th Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and will serve as the Federal government’s personnel chief. She will be the first Latina to hold this position. Katherine shares President Obama’s vision for diversity and inclusion in the federal workforce, which the President said helps “create more effective policymaking and better decision-making [for me], because it brings different perspectives to the table.”
Yeah wow. That’s awesome. Hey, as a Hispanic person myself, I’d rather you hire the first Hispanic person to whatever office because they’re COMPETENT not because of the color of their skin. Instead they hired this moron with the slimmest of qualifications:
Katherine Archuleta: Former school teacher and human resources person specializing in "diversity." Chief of staff to Hilda Soltis.

Congrats Katherine Archuleta! A former teacher who values diversity, she is the 1st Hispanic to lead the U.S. Office of Personnel Mgmt.

They were so shameless about it they even mentioned it at the announcement of her resignation today:
Josh Earnest: Archuleta increased diversity and inclusiveness across federal govt as OPM director.

And to make things worse, the damn spineless Republicans ADMIT that they didn’t properly vet her!!
…she had never received a thorough vetting of her qualifications for the job.
When she won Senate confirmation to lead the Office of Personnel Management, the chief objections from lawmakers who voted against her focused on Obamacare.
That was October, 2013, and the 62-35 vote reflected the political concerns at the time about how the agency, which serves as the federal government’s HR department, would implement parts of the health care law opposed by Republicans.
Less attention focused on the agency’s role in handling government security clearances and how it safeguards some of the most sensitive U.S. government databases.
Even less was paid to why Archuleta — whose most recent job was as a national political director for Obama for America, the President’s reelection campaign — was the person to help fix what was an agency already struggling to deal with technology problems and serious data breaches.
Aides to Republican lawmakers who voted for her confirmation now acknowledge they didn’t pay enough attention to the importance of technology in the agency Archuleta was taking over.
Now… it may be that CNN is merely trying to blame the Republicans to avoid pointing out that Obama appointed the moron in the first place, especially since they just cite anonymous “aides” who screw over their bosses. But you can be sure the GOP will screw this up and Obama will escape the blame again.
