According to Politico reporter Dan Dimond, Manning served for a mere nine months. “HHS is very grateful for her service,” HHS spokesperson told Politico. “Her departure after resignation was not unusual in any way.” The Washington Post verified that she “abruptly resigned” Friday. Manning was criticized by women’s groups for once saying that “contraception doesn’t work.” They warned that her anti-science pro-religion agenda would significantly impact national policy.
