Although that may all be standard legalese, that does not sound like a particularly friendly parting. I suppose we will hear more later on.
“As I resign from all board positions and duties, please see below a list of dispositions on outstanding issues: I expect to be fully compensated through the expiration date (December 31, 2012) of my current consulting contract with FreedomWorks,”
Is he resigning effective immediately, but demanding to be paid for the rest of his self created Christmas vacation?
Might be interesting, eventually learning the source of contention that led to Armey’s departure. Used to regard him as an okay conservative back in the day, but when he became vocally pro-amnesty, I grew very wary of him. That’s the reason I kept my distance from FreedomWorks, quite frankly. Plus, when the tea party movement started, he did come across rather presumptiously like a guy who ran out in front of an ongoing parade and immediately proclaimed himself the “big leader,” as if he were some kind of populist outsider. Which considering his background was hard to buy, to put it mildly.
Dick head trashed Sarah Palin, that was all I needed to know about him
And why was he making a income from the group?
He’s not the sharpest bulb in the drawer.
I think the tea party is more effective when it doesn’t have “leaders”. No one in particular for the MSM to attack. When they attacked us as a group, it didn’t stick. When they attack these so-called tea party leader groups (e.g. tea party patriots and tea party express) the MSM got more traction. Also, I remember a lot of the conservative middle and conservative Reagan democrats participating in tea party rallies.
Referencing the compensation makes me think he was voted out.
Huh huh, it’s about a guy named “Dick” and was written by a chick named “Weiner.”
Editor: “Hey Weiner, you got that Dick article yet?”
The top management team of FreedomWorks was taking a direction I thought was unproductive, and I thought it was time to move on with my life, Armey tells Mother Jones. At this point, I dont want to get into the details. I just want to go on with my life.
In the email, Armey indicated that he wants nothing to do with FreedomWorks anymore.
He'll receive an $8M payout...The person behind the payout is Richard J. Stephenson, a prominent fundraiser and founder and chairman of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, a national cancer treatment network.
