Republican Finance Official Eliott Broidy Resigns After Admitting He Paid Playboy Model To Abort Their Baby

The Hill reports:

Elliott Broidy, the venture capitalist who admitted Friday to paying a Playboy “playmate” who said she was pregnant with his child, has stepped down from his post on the Republican National Committee’s finance team.

Sources familiar with the discussions confirmed to The Hill that RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel accepted Broidy’s resignation Friday from his post as the RNC’s deputy finance chairman. The Wall Street Journal first reported his resignation.

Broidy confirmed the affair to the Journal and admitted that he “offered to help her financially” after she told him “she did not want to continue with the pregnancy.”
