TX GOP Primary Alert - Beware of Liberal Democrats' Intervention in Our Primary
"Texas Republican Activists" <TexasRepublicans@netscape.net> | March 4, 2004 | Matthew Griffing, Phil Magness and Brian Bodine

Posted on 03/05/2004 10:07:47 AM PST by SwinneySwitch

Matthew Griffing, Vice Chairman for Legislative Affairs, Young Conservatives of Texas;
Phil Magness, Project Chairman, East Gulf Coast Republican Assembly;
Brian Bodine, Chairman, University of Texas College Republicans;

March 4, 2004

Dear Fellow Republican,

It is great to be the majority party in Texas, but with this achievement comes the danger that liberal Democrats will attempt to manipulate our primary to undermine conservative Republican candidates. This danger is even greater now that leftist John Kerry has secured the presidential nomination.

We should be pleased when any remaining conservative Democrats join our party and participate in our open primary. However, we write to warn you of multiple attempts by liberal Democrats, who have no intention of voting Republican in November, to skew our primary process.

Earlier this week, Travis County Republican Party Chairman Alan Sager placed an automated call to Republican primary voters advising them that some Austin Democrats are planning to vote in the Republican primary in order to select "Uncommitted" for President solely for the purpose of embarrassing President Bush.

Second, liberal Democrat donors are contributing large sums of money to some candidates running as Republicans.

The most blatant example of this is Paul Green, who is challenging conservative Republican Texas Supreme Court Justice Steven Wayne Smith. Paul Green has received tens of thousands of dollars from wealthy Democrats who are huge donors to liberal politicians such as Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore, and Sheila Jackson Lee.

Tonight, Richard and Ginni Mithoff, who are liberal Democrat donors to Hillary Clinton's PAC, John Edwards, and the Planned Parenthood PAC, are hosting a fundraiser at their home for Paul Green.** As one of the plaintiff's lawyers in the Texas tobacco suit, Mithoff pocketed $10 million in legal fees that would have been better used to benefit the public.

Paul Green has also raised over a thousand dollars from the law firm Smyser, Kaplan & Veselka and its individual named partners. The firm and each of its named partners are large donors to liberal Democrats like Al Gore. Smyser, Kaplan & Veselka are also the lawyers for Planned Parenthood and have donated thousands of firm dollars to support Planned Parenthood's abortion facilities.

Harry Reasoner, the lawyer who defended racial quotas at the University of Texas in the Hopwood case which he lost to Steven Wayne Smith, is now taking revenge with his wallet. Reasoner, a big donor to Tom Daschle and other liberal Democrats, has given $1,000 to Paul Green.

Even Carlos Zaffirini, lawyer for the fugitive Texas Democrat legislators, donor to John Kerry, and husband of liberal Democrat State Sen. Judith Zaffirini, has given $5,000 to Paul Green.

The website www.paulgreendemocrats.com fully documents Paul Green's extensive network of liberal Democrat donors and provides proof for all of the contributions and facts referenced above.

It is disingenuous for a candidate to raise large sums of money from liberal Democrats and then use those funds to campaign for conservative Republican primary votes.

Believe it or not, some liberal Democrats are actually running as Republicans in this primary.

Conservative Republican Ernest Garcia faces Bill Green in the primary for the Austin-based 3rd Court of Appeals. Bill Green has voted in numerous Democrat primaries and worked for a liberal Democrat state legislator. Bill Green has never had a client and has never tried a case.

In the race for the Houston-based 14th Court of Appeals, Lloyd Oliver, who ran previously as a Democrat, is challenging highly respected Republican incumbent Justice Eva Guzman.

Finally, liberal Democrats are seeking to skew our Republican primary through their dominance of the media. We would strongly encourage you to disregard virtually all newspaper endorsements.

Polls have consistently shown that 90% of journalists are Democrats. While newspapers frequently write endorsements to give the appearance that their decisions are based on the qualifications of the candidates, this is often simply a cover for selecting the more liberal Republican.

Please be sure to vote in early voting through Friday, March 5 or on election day Tuesday, March 9. Please also encourage all your fellow Republicans to go to the polls and share this message with them. This is our best and, indeed, our only defense against attempts by liberal Democrats to manipulate our primary.

Sincerely,

Matthew Griffing Vice Chairman for Legislative Affairs Young Conservatives of Texas *

Phil Magness Project Chairman East Gulf Coast Republican Assembly *

Brian Bodine, Chairman University of Texas College Republicans *

*Organizations listed for identification purposes only.

**Fundraiser for Paul Green was held tonight, March 4 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm by liberal Democrat tobacco trial lawyer Richard Mithoff at his River Oaks home in Houston. Verified by phone call to Mithoff's law office at 12:15pm Thursday, March 4. Receptionist confirmed event was for Paul Green and provided directions.

I know a Republican Party official here in Kansas who is, in fact a liberal Democrat. He says that the activist Democrats in this state long ago gave up voting/ participating in the Democrat party because they recognize that state is too darn Republican. Instead they register as Republicans, and promote the most extreme and unappealing candidates as nominees for office. They claim the election of Governor Kathleen Sibelius, and the reelection of Congressman Dennis Moore is their doing.

I was going to vote in the dim primary until our County Chair, and Xena's pal, decided he didn't want to show us the books and got 2 dozen of his pals (who have never done a thing for the party) to run against the most conservative Precinct Chairs in Ft Bend.

Best of luck unseating him. Is he still running the party operations out of the Enron office?

I'm also voting against our party chair in Harris. The guy who is opposing him is an eccentric perrennial candidate (he's the guy who used to run against Carl Smith for Harris County Tax assessor every year because all the other republicans knew we couldn't unseat that one Dem). The way I look at it, I'd rather have an oddball who is relatively harmless for Chairman than the current Chairman, who is in bed with the world's most disreputable professions: a bunch of plaintiff's lawyers and 2 prostitutes (Blakemore and Hotze)

Would that include Michael McCaul in US CD 10? Endorsed by the liberal Austin American-Statesman and called the "moderate" of the candidates by the liberal Austin Chronicle, although they would not endorse anyone? McCaul is proudly trumpeting his endorsement in his own campaign ads. That tells me he doesn't know who runs the Statesman or doesn't care.

If I ever ran for office and the Statesman endorsed me, I would either decline the endorsement or drop out of the race in embarassment.

Agreed. Same goes for the Houston Chronicle, which donates thousands of dollars annually to Planned Parenthood of Houston (you read that right, freepers: if you subscribe to the Houston Chronicle you are indirectly funding abortion).

You can also tell a lot about a candidate if he has the endorsements of all the newspapers and if he publicly displays those endorsements. Paul Green, the supreme court candidate mentioned in this article, has just that and if you go to his website its the very FIRST link at the top of his front page:

It truly sickens me. There are some people in the republican party who are modern day pharisees and nothing more. They dupe the rabble into believing that they are men of God when in reality they are some of the worst blasphemers out there.

Half my mail on Friday was political ads. A lot of the stuff I've read contradicts each other.

Has anyone here put together a list of acceptable candidates for Harris and Fort Bend counties? I don't even know where to start.

I think the Austin papers are endorsing McCaul because he is the only contender in any House race from Austin. I have met with McCaul several times for extended interviews. He is not a moderate or RINO. Some complain that he worked with Bush and Cornyn. While these may not be as conservative as some of us would like, they are the most conservative team available to work with.

Here is my Harris County list:

I agree that we need someone better than Woodfill for HCRP Chair, but it only took 5 minutes of hearing Schneider once to know he is not conservative.

McCaul isnt the only one from Austin. Theresa Doggett Taylor also lives here. But I dont think she is putting any money into the race like McCaul is.

"He is not a moderate or RINO. Some complain that he worked with Bush and Cornyn. While these may not be as conservative as some of us would like, they are the most conservative team available to work with."

Yes and no. McCaul picked up Cornyn's endorsement; Devine's webpage says he picked up the endorsement of Ron Paul. So you could say that McCaul is the more establishment conservative choice in a field with other more ideological conservative candidates.

Yes, I said he was the only contender from Austin.

I think more likely you could say that McCaul used to work for Cornyn and Ron Paul knows Devine from years of exposure in the Houston area. There are other reasons I don't think Devine is worthy of the position. I did tell McCaul and Streusand that I was looking for someone who will challenge Ron Paul for the "Taxpayers Best Friend" award.

"McCaul isnt the only one from Austin."
"Yes, I said he was the only *contender* from Austin."

Ouch, that's a bit too cutting to the other candidates.
So, what is the 'ante" in the campaign pot to make you a 'contender'? $100,000? $500,000?

"I did tell McCaul and Streusand that I was looking for someone who will challenge Ron Paul for the "Taxpayers Best Friend" award."

Many are called but few answer. :-)

I'm not basing my support on dollars raised or spent. I'm just looking at who is the best candidate that has a chance of making the runoff. Teresa Doggett Taylor does not have that chance (and would not make the support list even if she did.)

Just received a recorded phone call from Harris County Republican Party Chairman Jared Woodfill.

He was complaining about deceptive campaign tactics.

He only mentioned Sharon McCally (334th District Court) calling herself "The George W. Bush Republican" when Bush did not appoint her as judge.

Others have complained about McCally using a picture of Bush on her materials.

My complaint about McCally's materials is that they don't differentiate her from her opponent. It is nice to know she got her daughter a dog for her birthday.

I guess that is the problem with running a positive campaign. Everyone running on a Republican ticket claims to be "conservative", "pro life", "pro family", "George Bush", "NRA/RKBA", etc.

My decision to vote for McCally is basically a vote against Rondon, who has allied himself with Blakemore.

GOPcapitalist said on the Texas forum:
"I've heard good things about Bain and a friend recommended Munoz. I was NOT impressed with Anderson when I met her. Don't know too much about McCally but she's running against Rondon, who is a Perry appointee and Blakemore client. So are Bernal and Carter. That's reason enough for me to oppose them because (a) Perry has a TERRIBLE track record of appointing judges - he picks RINOs and rewards the "big 5" law firms by picking judges from their ranks and (b) Blakemore is a sleazy peice of garbage so any candidate who goes to him and hires him has a lot of explaining to do."

I think as a public figure, anyone can use Bush's image/name without permission. I don't agree with Woodfill's implication that calling herself a "George W. Bush Republican" implies his endorsement.

I suspect Woodfill is getting pressure from Perry to support his appointee who is in danger of being defeated.

Yes, good idea. And a good idea to ping the whole state. Get more freepers involved and ready to get signed up to be at the state convention.

What we should do is post proposed resolutions. My hotbutton issues are: Immigration, judicial imperialism, educational vouchers. Not that other issues arent important (taxes, prolife, etc.) but they seem to be covered well by the platform already.

The pro-life Legacy PAC folks have a list and wording of proposed resolutions on a website. I'll post the link to that thread.

I'll tell you exactly what Woodfill is doing in that race and its unlikely that he's doing it at Perry's bidding. Perry probably wouldn't object to it but my guess is that Perry doesn't even know its happening - too local of a race to be on his radar.

McCally is running against Reece Rondon, a campaign client of political prostitutes Alan Blakemore and Steve Hotze. Woodfill is in bed with Dr. Hotze and Blakemore. He has been for the last two years and hired his staff directly out of their consulting operation. He also uses them for all the party's major fundraiser events, campaign advertising, and other consulting stuff. So my guess is that the good doctor simply called in a favor from Woodfill.

I suspect it even more because Woodfill has done this before. In 2002 he did an automated dial message urging voters to disregard "deceptive slates" of endorsements. In that autodial he specifically targetted one slate that was indeed being deceptive (it also endorsed against several Blakemore/Hotze clients) but remained completely silent about another equally sleazy and deceptive slate: the one Steve Hotze puts out himself. The result of the message was accordingly not to cast doubt on corrupt endorsement slate practices but only to target ONE particular commpetitor slate while giving another corrupt slate of his cronies a free ride.
