The Georgia Republican leader who organized an October lecture for GOP lawmakers in which a birther activist said that President Barack Obama and the United Nations are using “mind-control” to implement a sustainability agenda is resigning from the state Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) announced Tuesday that he is stepping down from his Senate seat to take a position with Georgia Public Broadcasting, WSB reports. Rogers, who worked in broadcasting prior to his 2002 election to the state House, will assume a position working on combining Georgia businesses with public education. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that among Rogers’ new duties will be hosting a weekly radio show on economic development.
In November, following the disclosure of the “mind-control” lecture, Rogers announced that he would be stepping down as majority leader at the end of the year, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family. He kept his Senate seat, however and was elected to a third term last month.
