The Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain who announced his resignation under pressure in April, told Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday he wants to rescind the offer. Conroy, a Jesuit priest, told Ryan in a letter he gave in to pressure from Ryan’s staff when he agreed to resign. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, has denied that Conroy’s political views played into the ouster and said he’d heard complaints about Conroy’s interactions with lawmakers. “I have never been disciplined, nor reprimanded, nor have I ever heard a complaint about my ministry during my time as House chaplain,” Conroy wrote in a letter, cited in the Washington Post. Conroy said he wants to remain in the position at least through the end of the year.
