Former Feeney fundraiser leaves post

A former fundraiser for Rep. Tom Feeney and other Floridians has dropped her lucrative side job raising money to concentrate on running the office of an Arizona congressman under federal investigation.

Patricia Roe is the chief of staff to Rep. Rick Renzi but had continued fundraising for him on the side, essentially doubling her already six-figure salary.

Roe is married to Jason Roe, Feeney's former chief of staff who resigned from Mitt Romeny's presidential campaign recently after it was reported that the FBI was investigating Feeney in the Jack Abramoff scandal.

Roe had also done fundraising work for Reps. Clay Shaw, Mario Diaz-Balart and Lincoln Diaz-Balart.
