Monica Crowley, who had been appointed to a communications role in the incoming Donald Trump administration, stepped down Monday, CNN reports.
Crowley had faced accusations of plagiarism involving her book, "What the (Bleep) Just Happened? The Happy Warrior's Guide to the Great American Comeback," and her Ph.D dissertation for Columbia University.
Last week, her book was pulled from store shelves, pending revisions.
