Pat Conroy Staying Chaplain in House of Representatives


WASHINGTON D.C. — Pat Conroy is staying on as Chaplain in the House of Representatives. 

Lawmakers approved his post in a voice vote Thursday. 

Conroy resigned from the position last April after filling it for seven years. 

He claimed then-Speaker Paul Ryan pressured him to leave because Conroy is Catholic. 

Conroy decided to rescind his resignation shortly after and was reinstated by Ryan.
