Report: DeMint may lose his seven-figure job

Politico reports that Jim DeMint may soon lose his job as president of the Heritage Foundation.

The reason? Word is that board members are unhappy with the degree of politicization of the conservative think tank.

We’re befuddled by this, since DeMint, a former member of the House and Senate, was a known quantity when he was hired.

DeMint quit his Senate job in 2012 to take the Heritage job, which, in 2015 (the last year for which tax returns are publicly available) paid him more than $1.1 million.

We’ve been writing about his aims for the fund for years.

Update: DeMint resigned on May 2, 2017, at the unanimous request of the Heritage board.
