Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign lost another senior staffer hours before the next Republican presidential debate Thursday, NBC News reported.
Campaign finance chairman Dean Parker resigned after a report by Politico that he was paying himself large sums for a role that is typically unpaid in other campaigns.
He called the allegations “misrepresentations” but still offered to resign, insisting he was working to help Carson.
Parker is the sixth senior level staffer to leave Carson’s campaign in the last two weeks, including his campaign manager and communications director. Two junior staffers have also left.
