Robert Ritter resigned his post as vice chairman of the Clifton Park Republican Committee last week, dismayed by anti-gay and anti-Semitic posts allegedly written by committee Chairman Brian Telesh. The remarks were detailed in news reports in recent weeks and have members of the town’s GOP committee questioning whether Telesh should still be at the group’s helm.
