Feeney aide resigns.


Word broke this week that the FBI is questioning Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL) over his ties to criminal lobbyist Jack Abramoff. In related news: “Jason Roe, Tom Feeney’s former chief of staff who had left to serve as deputy campaign manager for Mitt Romney, abruptly resigned from Romney’s campaign yesterday,” citing “familial obligations.” The FBI has said it is focusing on a Feb. 2006 email that Roe wrote to a journalist saying, “Any assertion that this office knew Abramoff paid for the Scotland trip is a g–d—– lie.”
