I think you're right, Paul. And on second consideration, I bet that one thing that was of major administrative concern was the fact that, in his email, Dan threatened to lead funds away from BYU. That's likely to raise pretty big concerns for admin at any level--including at Church Headquarters.
I have to wonder if Dan allowed his better half (wife) to proofread his nasty email before he actually sent it. And he should have consulted a lawyer. It's bolder than bold on his part and I think he miscalculated and it will ultimately cost him serious future personal income. He acted like a dodo and should have remained cool and at least act like he wanted to help.
The Obama team will look at this. If there is anyway to discredit Romney's background or connections with BYU through public scandal they will do so. National politics is the dirtiest game around and has the highest stakes. The powers that generate these elections are the strongest on earth with ungodly amounts of money to play with.
