BREAKING: Dick Armey resigns amid Freedom Works scrutiny

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, Republican of Texas, is resigning from DLA Piper law firm, Politico reports, because of criticism of his organization FreedomWorks and its role in town hall disruptions. In an interview with POLITCO Armey said that he was concerned about the media scrutiny the health care protests were drawing to the firm he has been associated with since retiring from Congress.

Gee, you mean those toothless, tattooed, bleached haired, trailer park real Americans were lobbyists plants at those town halls after all? Who would have guessed?!"GIMME MY COUNTRY BACK!" ("Did I get that right, Mr. Armey?")
