Angie’s List CEO Resigns After Foolish Attack on Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

Bill Oesterle, co-founder and chief executive of Angie’s List, has announced this week that he is resigning as the head of the Internet-based company he helped create. This comes after he made a fool of himself by using his company to viciously attack the religious freedom act put in place by Indiana last month.

Oesterle hyperbolically announced that Angie’s List was withdrawing plans to open a new headquarters in Indiana due to the states Religious Freedom Restoration Act. But he found much criticism for his decision.

Now he is resigning[1] to “pursue” other things.

According to USA Today, Oesterle told employees in an internal message, “I have decided to step down as chief executive officer to pursue other interests, including becoming more civically involved in the State of Indiana.”

Oesterle told the debate over religious liberty “came at a time when I was naturally thinking about what I might do for the rest of my life.”

“So I came to just the obvious realization that you have to pick,” said Oesterle. “You have to be a public company CEO or you can go work on political and social issues. You can’t do both.”

Good riddance to this nut who swallowed the left’s propaganda hook, line, and sinker.
