Chaffetz: Obama Needs to Fire OPM Chief

Rep. Jason Chaffetz says the leadership of the Office of Personnel Management should resign or be fired amid revelations of a massive hack that exposed the personal data of millions of government workers.

“If we want a different result, we’re gonna have to have different people,” Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, told reporters Tuesday after attending a classified briefing for House members where OPM officials discussed the breach.

Chaffetz singled out OPM Director Katherine Archuleta and OPM Chief Information Officer Donna Seymour, both of whom testified earlier in the day before his committee about the hack of its systems that officials have privately blamed on China. The breach exposed the data of at least 4.2 million individuals, though several lawmakers have suggested it could be far higher.
