UPDATE: Rep. Bettencourt Dumps McCain Over Money; Not Offered A Job With Romney

According to James Pindell, "D.J. Bettencourt, 23, a Republican from Salem, told the Associated Press that he was indeed considering a job with McCain, but that he does disagree with McCain on immigration. The campaign contends he was upset with the job offer."

While, Phil Elliott writes that Bettencourt "had been offered a paid position with the Romney campaign." His story is here: McCain supporter leaves campaign, asked for money

UPDATE: A Romney spokesperson has told us that "This is factually wrong. The campaign never offered him a job. The campaign never planned on offering him a job. We're not going to offer him a job."

UPDATE 2: Elliott also writes in the story "But in e-mails provided by the McCain campaign, Bettencourt, 23, said he had been offered a paid position with the Romney campaign and "they are on the hunt for conservatives."

As far as I am concerned, it's time to move on and no more updates will be posted on this story.
