The Corruption That Is the GOP

Pat Caddell: Republicans in Business of Lining Their Pockets: In my party [Democrat] we play to win. We play for life and death | Maggie’s Notebook

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.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
