Donor Controversy Hits Mississippi Conservatives
The American Spectator ^ | July 3, 2014 | Jeffrey Lord

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 week’s Mississippi GOP Senate primary, the cast of characters amazes.

At the story’s 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. We’ve 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 Priebus’s “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.

Let’s start there with the autopsy report authors.

Excerpt from email from Senate Conservative Fund:

Fellow Conservatives:

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.

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.

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.

This is not about Barbour or Mississippi, this is further proof that there really is a Uniparty.

I think that your senators in Georgia, as well as Tennessee’s senators are both part of a scheme to keep liberal republicans elected in conservative states. Built on the democrats good ole boy network, these liberal republicans work with their old buddies in the democrat party to hold power. Sorry to say but I think they may be working Kentucky the same way.

"...the Party has to be something of a Reagan era-like broad tent to win elections,..."

Think about it for a minute... what made Reagan a big tent guy and Ford, Bush I, Bush II, Romney, Dole and McCain not big tent guys.

I know you think the Tea Party is not big tent due to the media influencing you, but the Tea Party is the big tent. All the big government, so-called moderate GOP presidential candiates could not attract Democrat votes, but Reagan could. Bush I won his term running as Reagan's third term. In office, Bush I governed as a big government progressive and lost in the greatest political collapse for a president in American history; 90%+ support down to 37% vote. Why?

Bush II won running as a conservative and managed to hang on for a second term mostly because of his fighting the war on terror. He left in disgrace, due to his big government policies. Bush I left us the creepy Bill Clinton for 8 years and Bush II left us with the even creepier and more evil Obama for 8 years.

Progressive Republicanism is a loser at the polls, a loser in governing and leaves us with even further leftwing progressives once they leave office with their tail between their legs.

Don't allow yourself to be influenced by the media. Come'on.

Unsurprised. And I’ve been unlikely to contribute to the NRSC for some time now, this just adds to the reasons.

It galls me to no end that the NRSC took donor money earmarked for defeating Democrats in November, and instead handed that money out to Democrats in June in order to defeat a Republican.
