The drama just won’t stop at FreedomWorks. On Monday, Mother Jones DC bureau chief David Corn revealed that after former GOP Rep. Dick Armey left the tea party group in early December, Armey’s allies on the board launched a legal probe into the group, and FreedomWorks’ president fired back with allegations that Armey had betrayed the organization’s mission. Wednesday, the Washington Post published a riveting account of Armey’s alleged attempted coup, complete with a gun-wielding “assistant.” And later that day, Corn revealed the identity of that gunman. Corn discussed the scandal on Hardball with Chris Matthews, and with Robert Siegel on NPR. Listen to the NPR segment here. Watch Corn on MSNBC here:
