Conservative Leaders Respond to Attacks on Conservatives on Capitol Hill and Paul Teller

Conservative Action Project

   The Conservative Action Project, chaired by former Attorney General Edwin Meese and former Congressman David McIntosh, is designed to facilitate conservative leaders working together on behalf of common goals. Participants include the CEO’s of over 100 organizations representing all major elements of the conservative movement-economic, social and national security.

“We are saddened and outraged that an organization that purports to represent conservatives in Congress would dismiss a staff member for advancing conservatism and working with conservatives outside of Congress.”

Paul Teller is one of the true heroes of the conservative movement.  For over a decade, he has been the guiding light of conservatism on Capitol Hill.  No one has done more to advance conservative principles and block the liberal agenda than Paul Teller.  In the tradition of President Reagan, he is a true happy warrior who is both forceful and courageous.

Today, we learned that he was dismissed from his service as Executive Director of the Republican Study Committee.  Let us be clear.  Paul Teller has the 100% support of the conservative movement and conservatives across America.  We are saddened and outraged that an organization that purports to represent conservatives in Congress would dismiss a staff member for advancing conservatism and working with conservatives outside of Congress.  Given this action, and the earlier comments by the Speaker, it is clear that the conservative movement has come under attack on Capitol Hill today.

We urge all conservative leaders to recognize the tremendous service of our friend Paul Teller, and to redouble your efforts to advance a true conservative agenda on Capitol Hill and across the country.
