Posted on 07/03/2014 5:14:25 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
As the curtain is pulled up on all the shenanigans involved in one way or another with last weeks Mississippi GOP Senate primary, the cast of characters amazes.
At the storys center is a group calling itself Mississippi Conservatives. The group is on the receiving end of furious charges of race-baiting and racism that have smeared not only Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel but the larger GOP and the GOP Establishment that participated in the smear. Weve been through the names of contributors over there at the Federal Election Commission, and looked into some of those involved.
The still unfolding story involves everyone from a contributor to President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Vice President Joe Biden to former Vice President Al Gore and Democrat Senators that are being targeted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the 2014 elections.
Also involved? Two-co-authors of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebuss autopsy report aka the Growth and Opportunity Project that made much of outreach to African-Americans. One of them an RNC member, the other a former top aide to Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
Lets start there with the autopsy report authors.

What’s with the HORRIBLE writing in this article??
Thank you! I guess American Spectator decided to remove it ???
So now what? All those who commented at American Specter need to go to Mississippi News to comment again?
So be it. Have at it!
Reagan’s big tent was an invitation to follow a real leader. Today’s big tent is the driver’s seat as long as you’re heading left
It’s all jumbled up at that other source.
We need to contact J. Lord and ask what gives.
“Jeffrey Lord, a contributing editor to The American Spectator, is a former aide to Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan. He writes from Pennsylvania at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was not like that when I read it in The American Spectator. Really!
I always keep saying that there is big, big positive of the times we live in. Because of the instant communications, we know that this is going on. If this were happening before the internet ever came into existence Cochran would have won and that would be the end of it. What is helping McDaniel tremendously is the internet which creates public opinion.
It was perfectly legible this morning.
As you can tell by all the comments until it was pulled.
It didn’t read like that in the spectator. I saved the text of the spectator article.
Will you post the original text please?
what is a logical reason that rove would sell out conservatives? what does he get out of it?
According to a recent story published by American Spectator, several GOP lawmakers are now worried about the potential backlash from their donations to Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS). The report says,
"Several senators are more than a little uneasy with [Cochran's] tactics, which they feel responsible for since they raised money for Cochran."
They are responsible because they knew what they were funding. Thad Cochran and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) accused Chris McDaniel (R-MS) of being a racist back in October.
Thanks. That was quite informative. When all the dust settles, the only ones who should come out looking good are TEA Party folks.
Thank Freeper blackangus!
Both of my Georgia RINOs made the list. What is really bothersome is that Saxby Chambliss is retiring, yet he forked over $10,000 for the purpose of advancing a false narrative against Conservatives. Unfortunately, the REPUBLICAN voters of Georgia are about to replace Chambliss with another GOPe RINO.
See link. Both Isakson and Chambliss are on this list.
Looks like the name of every single RINO and baby RINO in the Senate plus a couple that surprised me, James Inhofe and Richard Shelby. If these people don’t start openly denouncing what has come to light, they all deserve to be removed from office.
I am absolutely sure that the $60,000.00 donation man, McConnell, knew exactly what the plan was for the money. It should follow him all the way back to Kentucky and conservatives in his state should let him know what they think loud and clear.
