And you thought no one resigned this week!
The New York Times reported today that Ann Barrett, the State Department official in charge of passport services has tendered her resignation. The announcement comes two weeks after the flap that ensued over snooping into the files of presidential candidates and other prominent Americans came to light. On Monday morning, she will be replaced by Lawrence Baer, a senior management official. She will remain at State, but will be transfered to the consular affairs bureau.
