Republican leader resigns, blasts Tennessee GOP..... :~) [View all]

A member of the Tennessee Republican State Executive Committee says he's resigning his position, blasting state party leaders and questioning the direction of the Tennessee Republican Party on his way out.

In his resignation letter, Mark Winslow said the party's "soul rotted away some time ago."

"As it's currently constituted, the TNGOP is really nothing more than a small corrupt core group who view our party as their private club and personal piggy bank. Money is passed around, doled out to friends, handed to favored consultants and staffers who ignore bylaws or common sense," Winslow wrote in his announcement, posted to Twitter.

"Rules are arrogantly and routinely broken by officers and staff with no consequences or accountability."
