Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Mr. Helmke

The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette is reporting that Sunday, July 10 marked Paul Helmke's final day as president of the Brady Campaign and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Helmke spent his final moments as president arguing that the ATF/ Department of Justice "Gunrunner/Fast and Furious" scandal is proof of the need for - what else? - more gun control.

Helmke said he's undecided about his next career move. We are left to wonder what he will tell future employers about his "accomplishments" at the Brady Center. "Had my ass handed to me in 50 states, the court system and Congress for five years" doesn't seem like much of a resume enhancer.
