Armey Got $8 Million to Leave Tea Party Group

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX) received an $8 million payout to leave the conservative Tea Party group, FreedomWorks, "because of an internal split over the group's future direction," the AP reports.

A confidential contract shows that Armey agreed in September to resign from his role as chairman of FreedomWorks in exchange for $8 million in consulting fees paid in annual $400,000 installments.
