Armey resigns from conservative group FreedomWorks

(CNN) - <snip>

Adam Brandon, the group's executive vice president, confirmed to CNN "that he did step down on Friday, and we wish him well."

"Obviously the elections didn't go the way we wanted," Brandon said. "But we are focused on the learning the lessons on what we need to better heading into 2013."

Mother Jones, which first reported the resignation, reported Armey said in an interview that the group's leadership was "taking a direction I thought was unproductive."


In an e-mail published by Mother Jones, Armey requests the group remove his endorsement from their materials, give him passwords to social media accounts bearing his name, and "deliver the copy of my official congressional portrait to my home in Texas."

CNN Senior Producer Kevin Bohn contributed to this report.

Armey was "not a fan" of Romney.
