Parker Griffith’s Staff Exits Stage Left
Monday, January 04, 2010 at 9:07 am
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee gleefully sends along news that Rep. Parker Griffith’s (R-Ala.) staff has resigned en masse, rebelling against their boss’s decision to switch from the Democratic Party. The full list: Sharon Wheeler (Chief of Staff), Megan Swearingen (Legislative Director), Brian Greer (Senior Legislative Assistant), Will Crain (Legislative Assistant), Sean Magers (Press Secretary), Arinze Ifekauche (Legislative Correspondent), Chase Chesser (Legislative Correspondent), Mary Lou Hughston (Staff Assistant), Dr. Anjali Shah Kastorf (Congressional Fellow), Leslee Oden (Congressional Fellow), and Andrew Menefee (Intern).
After the initial anger wore down, Griffith’s decision has been a source of Democratic schadenfreude — especially after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) made a ham-handed play to get another conservative Democrat to change parties and came up short.
