Another? Eric Cantorís Top Consultant Given $1.13M by Virginia GOP
pjmedia.com ^ | 4/24/14 | David Steinberg

After learning that newly installed Virginia GOP Executive Director Shaun Kenney is on Eric Cantor’s payroll, Virginia Republican voters are now hearing that a company run by Cantor’s top consultant, Ray Allen, is wealthy from party money. Allen’s Creative Direct, LLC is not just on the Republican Party of Virginia’s payroll, it represents the single largest expenditure on the party’s 2013 campaign finance disclosures.

Sound like a fair primary landscape for Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat?

Should Eric Cantor survive this primary on June 10, he is the presumptive next speaker of the House, although this is dependent on what occurs with John Boehner and the large caucus of House Republicans who oppose his speakership. If he becomes speaker, Cantor would be the voice of what is shaping up to be a significantly larger Republican House majority due to the nation’s disgust with Obamacare. This majority would certainly benefit from a scandal-free environment in which to battle for the actualization of that mandate to repeal.

With that situation as background, local Virginia political site The Bull Elephant has broken this story about Ray Allen:

Why Rep. Cantor thinks it is a good idea to needlessly antagonize half the party he wants to lead is beyond me.

That’s why it is intensely interesting to look at the Republican Party of Virginia’s 2013 campaign finance disclosures, available on VPAP.org. The vendor with the single largest spend of RPV dollars (and RNC Victory funds channeled through RPV)? Yep, you guessed it: Ray Allen’s Creative Direct LLC, to the tune of $1.13 million. So far in 2014 we haven’t had any elections, but Creative Direct has been tapped to do fundraising direct mail pieces for RPV, fattening Ray Allen’s wallet by another $26,000 while Allen orchestrates destructive campaigns at Republican units around the state.

Career politicians are killing us. Term limit all these bsturds into oblivion. We need citizen representation at every level. There is only one party in Washington: the Re-Election Party. Eliminate the re-elections and eliminate the primary source of corruption in our entire political system.

Article V. now!

Cantor would be even worst than Boehner.

We have got to find a way to break this chain of career politicians ruling DC. Term limits are the way to go and a Convention of the States is the fastest way to get a term limit amendment to the constitution.

I'm for "term limiting" government bureaucrats too.

”Eliminate the re-elections and eliminate the primary source of corruption in our entire political system.”

Add to term limits getting rid of the Mediacracy and insider training and we could fix this country in two cycles.

When you run for your one term, you will have my vote. I might even make a one-time contribution. :)
