The chief of staff for Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) resigned Monday as sources said the congressman’s office has busted its budget.
J. Aloysius Hogan, Broun’s chief of staff, was in charge of the Member’s Representational Allowance (MRA), which was depleted because of franked mail, according to sources. The franked mail, which was sent to constituents, may have helped Broun in his recent primary win.
Earlier this month, sources said that Broun’s MRA was so low that the lawmaker would have to cut staff. At the time, Broun’s office said it was unaware of any possible cuts.
He’s a great guy. I understand the resignation and hope he lands on his feet.
