Bradlee Dean, the rocker/radio host/pastor of the "its-name-is-so-butch-it-sounds-like-a-gay-porno" You Can Run But You Can't Hide Ministries, is having a very bad week. After years of aggressive preaching in front of the government and in public schools, the anti-woman, anti-muslim, anti-gay bigot is going to have to find a new way to pay Rachel Maddow's legal bills for that lawsuit he lost as his entire ministry staff has walked out on him.
The story seems to be that the staff grew tired of alleged abuses and exploitations, which included not being paid, and as a result compiled a 28-page testimony for the Minnesota Attorney General's office. Former staffer Jake Dagel even characterized the organization as a "cultic sham ministry." Nothing remains – not the street teams, not even Dean's radio co-host Jake McMillan – except for Dean himself to run everything. It seems unlikely that he alone will be able to keep a twelve-man operation running for long.
