Has Kathleen Sebelius Really Resigned?

We couldn't help but notice (while looking to see how many people of color, in prominent roles, work for the Obama administration) that 'former' Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is still being featured on the White House Profiles pages.

Does Kathleen Sebelius still work for the White House as SHHS?

Ms. Sebelius was said to have resigned amid the embattled roll out of the Affordable Care Act website that ended up being a nightmare for the administration, and those wanting to sign up for health care coverage.

You may recall incidents with the website crashing, security issues, and more.

[Sebelius' White House blog posts].

Despite those 'glitches', more than 7 million Americans have enrolled - a feat the administration calls "historical".

Silvia Matthews Burwell (Office of Management and Budget) was announced as the replacement for Sebelius, despite her 'historical' accomplishment praised by President Obama.  Burwell was confirmed by the Senate last month.

"She’s a proven manager who’s demonstrated her ability to field great teams, forge strong relationships, and deliver excellent results at the highest levels", President Obama said of Burwell. “

Burwell's photograph, however, is not included on the White House Profiles page at this time.
