It’s official —Nina Jankowicz has resigned.

While early reports indicated that Jankowicz was “evaluating her position” at the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, she has now officially submitted her letter of resignation.

“With the Board’s work paused and its future uncertain … I have decided to leave DHS to return to my work in the public sphere,” Jankowicz said in a statement released through a spokesperson. “It is deeply disappointing that mischaracterizations of the Board became a distraction from the Department’s vital work, and indeed, along with recent events globally and nationally, embodies why it is necessary.

“I maintain my commitment to building awareness of disinformation’s threats and trust the Department will do the same.”

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), a huge opponent of Jankowicz and the new department, shared her thoughts on Twitter:

“When we put pressure on this administration, they fold like a house of cards. The so-called Disinformation Governance Board is done. Hopefully Nina figures out another way to get famous. Watch out for that!”

Member of the Manhattan Institute Christopher Rufo has an interesting suggestion for a  replacement for Jankowicz.

“I nominate @libsoftiktok to succeed Nina Jankowicz as director of the Disinformation Board.”

From the original report from The Washington Post…

Just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being “paused,” according to multiple employees at DHS, capping a back-and-forth week of decisions that changed during the course of reporting of this story. On Monday, DHS decided to shut down the board, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation. By Tuesday morning, Jankowicz had drafted a resignation letter in response to the board’s dissolution.

But Tuesday night, Jankowicz was pulled into an urgent call with DHS officials who gave her the choice to stay on, even as the department’s work was put on hold because of the backlash it faced, according to multiple people with knowledge of the call. Working groups within DHS focused on mis-, dis- and mal-information have been suspended. The board could still be shut down pending a review from the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Jankowicz is evaluating her position within the department.
