& Paul TellerRepublican 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. It's not the first time he's played both sides, according to several Republicans. In fact, they say Teller's firing was a long time coming. "This wasn't ideological. He leaked against RSC members all the time," said another senior GOP aide. "He worked against bills sponsored by members without the chairman knowing."Source: http://www.nationaljournal.com/congress/rsc-fires-executive-director-for-leaking-member-l...
