Ben Domenech Resigns

Ben Domenech has had a rough few days. He started off taking shit for his new Red America blog over at WaPo. Then he’s called a bigot for some blog posts he made a while back at Red State.

Now, he’s been forced to resign from his position at WaPo due to plagiarism charges (also posted at official WaPo Blog). It was probably a good idea for him to step down. Lots of people from both sides wanted to see him go.

Jim Brady posted at Red America announcing Ben’s resignation. Jim is the executive editor at washingtonpost.com. Below are conservative bloggers with some rather interesting things to say about Domenech:
Riehl World View
The Political Pit Bull
Outside The Beltway
Michelle Malkin
Don Surber
Right Wing Nut House
Iowa Voice

All-in-all, this sucks. Had there not been such a huge initial furor over Ben and WaPo, Red America would still be around. I understand peoples anger about Ben though. He did plagiarize, losing Red America are the consequences of his actions. Too bad.
