She's really out this time, resigning as Hewlett-Packard chairman and board member, effective immediately. She is being replaced by H-P CEO Mark Hurd, who himself is under fire for having been aware of the company spying on board members. At a press conference, Hurd apologized for the company's actions. Earlier, Dunn had announced plans to step down as chairwoman at the end of the year, but stay on as a board member. Wonder how today's events will affect Mike Sitrick's work for both Dunn and the company. He was brought on to do his crisis management thing a couple of weeks ago, but when your client is being investigated by nearly every agency under the sun, there's just no place to hide.
