…God poached a CQ Roll Call staffer. We tallied up last week a total of nine resignations at the newsgroup in the past 60 days.  Unfortunately for CQRC, the count hit double digits when Scott Ferrell announced his divine departure on Friday.

The good news:  the award-winning photographer wasn’t poached by Politico, Bloomberg or National Journal.

The bad news: now even God is getting in on the action and recruiting staffers away from CQRC.

According to an internal memo memo by John Dineen, Ferrell is taking a full-time position as a pastor with his church in Warrenton.  Congrats to Ferrell and say a few prayers for FishbowlDC – we need all the help we can get!
