DOES HE NOT HAVE THE DECENCY TO RESIGN?:
GOPers chant 'fire him' at RSC Staffer (JOHN BRESNAHAN & JAKE SHERMAN | 7/27/11, Politico)
House Republicans 0n Wednesday morning were calling for the firing of Republican Study Committee staffers after they were caught sending e-mails to conservative groups urging them to pressure GOP lawmakers to vote against a debt proposal from Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Infuriated by the e-mails from Paul Teller, the executive director of the RSC, and other staffers, members started chanting "Fire him, fire him!" while Teller stood silently at a closed-door meetings of House Republicans.
"It was an unbelievable moment," said one GOP insider. "I've never seen anything like it."
