A pair of staffers is leaving Rep. Trey Radel’s (R-FL) office on the heels of the congressman’s recent cocaine bust.

According to Politico, Amanda Nunez and Caitlin Rush are both leaving their posts on Capitol Hill to take jobs at Endeavor Strategic Communications, a public relations firm founded by former Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) aide Kurt Bardella.

Nunez served as Radel’s communications director, while Rush was digital director for the Florida congressman.

Radel took a leave of absence last week to receive treatment. On Monday, Florida’s state Republican Party chair called on Radel to resign.
