Arizona Congressional Staffer Resigns Over Inappropriate Tweets


Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar confirmed last night that “a caseworker in a district office” had tendered his resignation:

Gosar’s deputy chief of staff, Tom Van Flein, would only say: “Today we accepted the resignation of a staff member that made a mistake.”
The mysterious mistake: tweeting what The Hill called “a series of violent and explicit messages.”
The staffer, Blake Schritter, tweeted from his personal account: “I can’t believe how unprofessional liberal professors can be. I’m sitting here, cleaning my gun, thinking…this is a classroom!!!”
In another tweet, Schritter wrote: “The Rep. Weiner Twitter scandal is all over the news. Note to self: when in politics, never shag and shout.”
Yet another tweet posted July 2, read, “The line at the post office is moving at a glacial pace. I’m ready to open fire with a handgun to get some damn service!” as reported by Roll Call.
This is perhaps to be expected from a Twitter account with the handle “drunkenbs.”

If you were hoping to read more from “drunkenbs”, I hate to be the one to break this to you but the account has since been removed.
