In the first paragraph below Caddell seems to accuse The Republican National Committee’s (RNC) Chief of Staff Jeff Larson and Romney’s political director Rich Beeson to firms racking in $150 million from Romney’s failed campaign, according to the FEC. Caddell doesn’t the men by name, but this article seems to, along with Romney “digital director” Zach Moffat.
RICO = Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations.
“When you have the Chief of Staff of the Republican National Committee and the political director of the Romney campaign, and their two companies get $150 million at the end of the campaign for the ‘fantastic’ get-out-the-vote program…some of this borders on RICO [the 1970 Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] violations,” Caddell told the crowd. ”It’s all self dealing going on. I think it works on the RICO thing. They’re in the business of lining their pockets.”
Yes, this comports with one of my most trusted maxims: when the reason for something is either invisible, or makes no sense, the reason is always money.
