VFW moves to dissolve PAC's board
Politico ^ | 10/18/10 | Ben Smith

Posted on 10/18/2010 11:32:58 AM PDT by Nachum

The National Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Richard Eubank, has moved to amend his organization's bylaws to dissolve its PAC, which is run independently.

The PAC endorsed Democratic incumbents starting with Nancy Pelosi based on their votes on a relatively small number of votes to do with veterans in a year when many VFW members are siding against Democrats on broader policy concerns, and the PAC has already refused the VFW's entreaty that it "rescind" its endorsement.

"[T]he recent endorsement decisions have, in fact, harmed the VFW’s reputation and future ability to fulfill our mission," writes Eubank in a memo to members posted on the milblog BlackFive, citing negative publicity. "I cannot let this erosion of public support for our great organization continue."

Sounds like that PAC had gone rogue. Glad to see VFW dissolved its board.

Little liberal cabals are really great a seizing control of things. They do this sort of thing all the time in local government, packing board with friends and co-travellers. They have turned many a charity started by rich capitalists into leftist instruments of social destruction. Think about the Ford foundations support for La Raza, for instance.

Other than "Constant Vigilance" I'm not sure what the solution is to prevent this.

Good for the VFW for pulling their charter.

Another blow to the Democrats. The NRA needs to do the same.

Great move by Richard Eubank. Now, if DeMint and others could only do the same with RNC!

They must have read my earlier posts :) Just what I suggested they do! [of course, anyone who could read bylaws could see that]

Only a little. It seems the leftists at the PAC couldn't help themselves. Bottom line is, the tail ain't wagging the dog. This is a big smackdown.

My bad! Not exactly a duplicate. Did you see the idiotic responses on the Politico site?

They are indeed good at siezing control of things. Look at the major churches in the US.

they grab power at the top and then start dictating to the peasants.

they get on boards, etc. and then take advantage of all the work, volunteer contributions, volunteer labor, time and effort that has gone into creating the organization.

they are raiders. Like the Vikings descending on peasant villages. Grab all the products that the villagers have struggled to produce. Grab, smash and go.

Little liberal cabals are really great a seizing control of things.

In addition to the examples you set out, they have been successful with a number of churches and they appear on the verge of success with our military.

It seems likely solutions will only be forthcoming when responsible fleaders and politicans have the courage to take a position.

Ditch PC and call a spade a spade. They'll get over it. Then start spanking asses in every legal way possible like they are doing here.

Let the liberals trying to take the VFW over go elsewhere. May John Kerry’s Winter Soldiers are looking for new members.

I suppose VFW PAC endorsing Harry (this war is lost)Reid, Barbara (call me ma'am) Boxer, Nancy (I need a bigger Air Force jet) Pelosi, and Alan (The war is making us poor) Grayson might have something to do with this
