Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise has fired the group's longtime executive director, Paul Teller, multiple sources told National Journal.

The reason for the dismissal, according to sources familiar with the situation, is that Teller allegedly shared sensitive conversations between RSC members with outside advocacy groups, some of whom hold policy positions counter to the RSC.

"No staffer is above a member," said one senior Republican aide familiar with the situation. "Paul was divulging private, member-level conversations and actively working against RSC strategies supported by House conservatives."

Teller could not immediately be reached for comment.

The move comes as Scalise, who has not stated whether he will support the budget compromised brokered by Rep. Paul Ryan, is attempting to take the temperature of his members on the agreement.

Scalise was meeting individually with top conservative lawmakers, including former RSC Chairman Jim Jordan, before Wednesday's RSC gathering. Jordan, who is close to Teller, initially said the meeting was about Ryan's budget agreement. But it became clear afterward that other things, including Teller's dismissal, were discussed.

22 out of 25 so called conservative congressmen show up on the RSC membership rolls.  Not one of them complained about Teller's firing.  I guess they don't like it when their ED works for the advocacy groups and not on behalf of the US Congressmen themselves.  Perhaps they like their ED a little less gossipy. 

Congratulations to Senator Ted Cruz on this catch.  In politics a small screwup can lead to big headaches.  It's important who you share secrets with, and its important to know who you can trust.  You know how far you can trust Teller.  Cruz may have insulted a 170+ Congressmen just a few months after demanding they jump aboard his defund Obamacare show. 

I think that is a pretty dumb move.


No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17
