Tea-ed Off: Dick Armey Quits FreedomWorks

Lead in text: 
The former North Texas congressman helped found the Tea Party-affiliated group, which powered Republicans to a House majority in 2010. The Washington Post also reports that two other top FreedomWorks officials have left.
In a move not publicly announced, former Rep. Dick Armey, the folksy conservative leader, has resigned as chairman of FreedomWorks, one of the main political outfits of the conservative movement and an instrumental force within the tea party.
