Romney's Deputy Campaign Manager Resigns

Jason Roe, who joined Romney's campaign in early March of this year, is resigning citing "familial obligations." Roe had formerly served as Rep. Tom Feeney's Chief of Staff and the St. Petersburg Times reported Monday that the FBI had asked it about an email Roe had written the paper last year regarding his Congressman's interactions with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Given the recent Abramoff-related indictments and raids this month, did Roe resign from his post so quickly after being hired to avoid giving Romney any taint of association with Abramoff. If Feeney or any of his staff is likely to end up in hot water, it's probably a smart move. I wonder then if this is a voluntary resignation by Roe or a prompted one.
