Goodbye, Susan Sher. Hello, Tina Tchen.
Readers of Culture of Corruption are already familiar with the name “Susan Sher.”
Sher is Michelle Obama’s old boss at the University of Chicago Medical Center (where they worked together on the infamous patient-dumping scheme no one wants to talk about) and a former Mayor Richard Daley attorney. She took over as chief of staff for the First Lady in June 2009 — after Mrs. Obama’s first, short-lived chief of staff Jackie Norris was installed at Americorps to protect the Obamas’ cronies.
Earlier today, the White House announced that Sher was stepping down and heading back to the Windy City.
Who’s filling her place?
Another left-wing Chicago crony, of course
Call it a shakeup or call it a natural turnover halfway through the term, but the White House is preparing for significant change throughout its top ranks. Much of the movement, though, will involve new posts for longtime aides to President Barack Obama.
Among the many moves afoot, Tina Tchen, who is responsible for working with outside groups, is preparing to move to the East Wing to serve as First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, according to two Democrats close to the White House.
It’s part of a shuffle that gives the White House a chance to consider how it wants to organize itself for the coming two years, when it will face a more hostile, more Republican Congress. Interim Chief of Staff Pete Rouse is studying how to reorganize the place so it is ready for the next stage.
