Posted on 12/11/2013 2:07:44 PM PST by HenryArmitage
Paul Teller, the executive director of the conservative Republican Study Committee, has reportedly been fired, a senior GOP aide confirmed to TPM on Wednesday.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA, pictured), the chairman of the RSC, asked for Teller's resignation, according to Politico on Wednesday. The RSC serves as the policy group for roughly 170 conservative members in the House.
A senior GOP aide said that Teller had been "divulging private, member level conversations and actively working against strategies developed by the RSC members."
Teller's firing is also notable given that when Scalise took the reigns of the RSC in 2012 he decided to keep Teller as executive director.
“actively working against strategies developed by the RSC members.”
translation-he outed the rinos in the rsc
The GOPe is going to throw the 2014 election at this rate, we will end up with a one-party state, it seems this is what they are aiming for.
What the hey?
That’s what it sounds like.
Fire Mitch AND Boner, as examples for the benefit of the others.
ALL the RSC should be doing whatever it take 'to undermine the Ryan-Murray budget deal'.
Someone please tell me what the difference is between the Dems and GOP’ers. I keep forgetting.
Are you sure?,I thought Scalise was one of the good guys? Maybe Teller is the RINO?
"Teller, a staunch conservative with long-standing ties to outside groups opposing the deal, is accused of working behind the scenes to derail the budget agreement." according to the National Journal: http://www.nationaljournal.com/congress/rsc-fires-executive-director-for-leaking-member-level-talks-to-outside-groups-20131211
They create one website, where you can donate money to local or national candidates DIRECTLY, preventing one penny from making it into the hands of the RNC.
Democrats love their base and the GOP hates theirs?
Wish a conservative group like FreedomWorks, Senate Conservatives or Heritage (the groups Midge McConnell is having hissy fits over) could hire this guy.
The Dems want a commie government and the GOP wants a Marxist government.
I mean if that’s not a sacking offense I don’t know what is.
Sounds like he was working with the Establishment GOP against the more conservative, and Tea Party folks.
Does Paul ride a Harley, come from California and have a cousin named Jax whose wife was recently murdered?

How many ways can you spell sc***ed?
