The Wisconsin Republican’s decision to oust the priest sparked a wave of bipartisan backlash, with Democrats pushing for a select committee to be established to investigate his motives for the move.Conroy ultimately announced he planned to fight to stay in the role, but Ryan accepted his decision.
The article goes on to state the following:
Conroy, who received the request for his resignation via Ryan’s chief of staff Jonathan Burks, said he believes Ryan wanted to oust him over a prayer during the tax reform debate. Ryan maintains the decision was not political, saying he wanted to ensure members’ pastoral needs were being met.
