Skip to comments.Ken Cuccinelli Vs. The Grifters
Posted on 09/19/2014 4:54:00 AM PDT by GulliverSwift
In a move that could shake up the conservative-outside-group-world, former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is suing a conservative political action committee called Conservative StrikeForce PAC for allegedly raising millions of dollars for his campaign, and spending only a small fraction of that on his race. According to a report on the lawsuit:
(A) substantial proportion of the approximately $2.2 million that defendants raised through political fundraising in 2013 was directly attributable to solicitations invoking Ken Cuccinelli, as Virginias gubernatorial election was the marquee contested race of American politics in 2013, the lawsuit states. Defendants, however, have admitted that they did not use the money raised invoking Ken Cuccinelli to actually aid the Cuccinelli campaign, either through direct contributions to the campaign or through independent expenditures in support of the campaign, other than a single $10,000 contribution to the campaign on October 4, 2013 which amounted to less than one-half of one percent of the approximately $2.2 million that defendants raised in 2013.

I completely support Ken Cuccinelli in this lawsuit. I’m a proponent of donating directly to individual constitutional conservatives’ campaigns and, with the exception of certain trusted organization such as the Senate Conservatives Fund and True the Vote, never to these “third party” organizations.
Missed opportunity for Republicans as they abandoned Virginia because they refuse to support a conservative. Current situation in Virginia is bleak as Executives would have us go “the way of Maryland”.
Does anyone else have this picture of Jenny Beth Martin come to mind as well?
I love Allen West, the man, but I hate the e-mails I get regularly from his PAC beggin for money. If Allen is browsing, get rid of them and just hire someone to run your own website. If it is your own enterprise, change the delivery and message tactics.
I lump them all in the same, including Freedom Works, Tea Party Express, Tea Party Patriots and the list goes on. I am now sending back the unsubscribe notices.
The original TEA Party uprising has been exploited by a lot of people who are not true conservatives.
I don’t trust any organization claiming to “support conservative candidates.” No Freeper should.
TTV is the rare exception as Catherine and her family are the targets from both sides. As for the Senate Conservatives Fund, I would have to look at their financials before passing judgment, but I get the same send us money to fight e-mails as well. If they will not submit their financials, no way.
All of this junk out there is just the United Way all over again.
This is great. The GOP political apparatus has become encrusted with these campaign consultant leaches to the point that it no longer functions. I hope Cooch goes scorched earth on them.
What a lot of grassroots conservatives haven’t figured out yet is that many of the worst consultants/groups are actually the ones proclaiming the loudest that they are the most conservative.
It’s just awful how difficult it is now to separate the wheat from the tares.
