Kathleen Sebelius resigning from top HHS post

WASHINGTON — A White House official says Health and Human Services
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration.

The move comes just a week after the close of the rocky enrollment period for
President Barack Obama’s health care law. Website failures marred the opening
weeks of the six-month enrollment period, but the administration rebounded
strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in health insurance plans.

Sebelius’ resignation could set the stage for a contentious election-year
confirmation hearing for whomever Obama nominates to replace her. Sebelius has
served as HHS secretary since the start of the Obama administration.

The official was not authorized to discuss Sebelius’ resignation ahead of the
formal announcement and requested anonymity.
