A Young Republican resignation

Marc Ambinder has the resignation letter of Audra Shay, the woman who survived a Facebook scandal to become president of the Young Republican National Federation.

Recently the stress of running a national organization has begun to take a major toll on my personal, and professional, my health mentally and physically. The responsibilities or running this organization without a salary or full time staff has become overwhelming. I have recently lost two of my family members and found out yesterday that a third has 3 months to live. With these circumstances I have spent many hours praying as to what my path was to be. Today I am letting you know the answer to that question is that I will be resiging as YRNF Chairman.

Lisa Marie Stickan takes Shay's job, with the election for Stickan's old job to come in July, and no vote on a new president until the next national convention. While the last high-profile YR resignation was spurred by a real scandal, I hear no rumblings of that now.
