White House communications director Anita Dunn will step down from her post at the end of the month and Dan Pfeiffer, her deputy, will take over, according to sources familiar with the move.

Dunn, a longtime Democratic media consultant, took over the job on an interim basis earlier this year when Ellen Moran abruptly left the post to take a job at the Commerce Department. Dunn will return to Squier Knapp Dunn, the consulting firm where she is a partner, but will remain as a consultant to the White House on the communications and strategic matters.

The move will be formally announced later today.

This was widely predicted in blogdom for a month now. I suspect this thing waited until the initial fires Dunn set on herself died down some… all so as to minimize damage to the Obama Image, you know. Wait until people aren’t looking that direction is usually the best policy when sweeping something under the rug.
