Should the OPM director resign?

The fallout from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data hack continues, as a contentious congressional hearing led to calls for the resignation of the OPM's leader. Members of a house committee attacked the OPM chief, claiming she is responsible for the data security failures that appear to have led to the hacking of OPM systems by what are presumed to be Chinese hackers.
