WaPo Reporter Who Called Marriage Supporters Bigots Resigns

 

David Weigel has resigned after numerous emails surfaced disparaging conservatives.  Weigel was hired as a conservative to cover the "conservative beat" for WaPo. A few weeks ago, he blogged that he has sympathy for everyone he covers except for those who oppose gay marriage, whom he called "bigots."  Now it appears his sympathies for conservatives are more generally limited.
