Senate Majority Leader McConnell Statement on OPM Director Resignation

‘The Obama Administration needs to take this opportunity to articulate a credible plan of action, and more thoroughly address the legitimate concerns of the American people’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement regarding the resignation of Katherine Archuleta, Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and the need for the Obama administration to ‘articulate a credible plan of action’ to prevent additional breaches of Americans’ personal information:

“The Obama Administration needs to take this opportunity to articulate a credible plan of action, and more thoroughly address the legitimate concerns of the American people, particularly the millions who have been harmed by the lack of competence in confronting a massive cyber-attack. That means showing a resolve to get to the bottom of what happened, that means giving the American people renewed confidence in a creaking bureaucracy, and that means pledging to work with policymakers to enact real reforms rather than accepting failure.”
