White House social secretary Desiree Rogers, who faced criticism for her handling of state dinner party crashers in November, is leaving her post, an Obama administration official said on Friday.

Rogers is personally close to first lady Michelle Obama and is part of a group of Chicagoans who came to Washington with President Barack Obama.

The official had no further details on Rogers' departure.

Rogers came under fire, including calls for her resignation, after Virginia couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi managed, without an invitation, to slip into the November 24 White House state dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
