What would you think if you saw five members of the Lincoln Tea Party on the list of candidates that Charles Munger spent $41,452 attempting to elect to Placer GOP Central Committee?
Charles Munger is a liberal billionaire from the Bay Area that is spending big bucks to hunt conservatives all over California. He supports Gun Control and his sister, Molly is feverishly spending millions to put a massive tax increase on the November ballot.
Phyllis Wing is reputedly Pro-Life and Pro-Prop 8, but she is a board member of the Placer County Republican Congress. The Placer County Republican Congress website says, “…mainstream, fiscally conservative, pro-business and socially tolerant citizens.”
Phyllis, Carol Wilson, Dan Catania, Gary Hall and a former Placer CRP Chairman Ken Campbell are all being funded by Charles Munger. All are members of the “Tea Party United” in Lincoln. Phyllis and Ken are hard-core Doug LaMalfa disciples. (I’d assume that the others are as well)
Doug LaMalfa’s staff were paid by Charles Munger in an attempt to annihilate the California Republican Party platform – including removal of the Pro-Life and the Pro-Family planks (see also Proposition 8 ) from the CRP platform. When this evidence was uncovered – Phyillis and others refused to believe it was true, despite the firestorm that Doug LaMalfa received as a result.
And – the attacks on Prop 8 are back. There is an assembly race here locally that features Prop 8 and Charles Munger as a central issue.
The Placer County Republican Assembly controls the Central Committee currently. Most of our members are staunchly pro prop-8. Charles Munger is not, in fact, he was part of a $3 million effort to sway four Republican State Senators in New York to legalize Gay Marriage.
Apparently, he has targeted the Placer GOP Central Committee in his latest play to attack conservatives. His allies? The Lincoln “Tea Party United” and the Placer County Republican Congress.
We expected the Placer County Republican Congress to come calling – their leaders, Mike Holmes, Jon Green and Cheryl Bly-Chester take turns disrupting meetings over minor issues just because they are angry that the Placer CRA continues to hold power in the committee despite theirs and Doug LaMalfa’s best efforts.
Linked here is a PAC called the California Senior Advocates League Pac – click the link, you will find that they are spending gobs of money on Democrats and (((POOF))) two Republican Central Committees. Placer and San Bernardino.
So Liberal Democrats like Steve Clute, Charlotte Solovos, Joe Coto and Jason Hodge are beneficiaries along with the 5 from the Lincoln Tea Party.
If you click here – you will see a who’s who of Democrat leaning PAC’s and Charles Munger on the donor list. If you look close, you will see that the $100k that Munger chipped in is roughly the same amount as the total of the IE’s on the two Central Committee Races.
What does the Placer GOP Central Committee have to do with a bunch of competitive Democrat races? It has to be the conservative values of the CRA members being targeted.
The Placer GOP was one of the largest thorns in the side of the attempted Moderate takeover of the California Republican Party – and now Ken Campbell, the formerly Conservative Chairman of the Placer GOP along with 4 recruits in the Lincoln “Tea Party United” are on the Munger team?
The Irony? In 2002 – 10 years ago, the Placer County Republican Congress attempted to take over the Placer GOP Cent Com in an effort to unseat then chairman Ken Campbell!
Of no surprise? Spencer Short, a Liberal Republican Lincoln Councilmember – not only hid his title as councilmember from the ballot, but he faces a tough re-election in the fall because of the financial train wreck that is Lincoln. He is on the Munger team.
Doug LaMalfa’s appointee to Placer County – Murriel Oles is a pro-choice, no on 8 Munger Team Member and Tim Buescher, the father of LaMalfa staffer Lisa Buescher is also on the team.
You have a choice for Placer GOP Central Committee and don’t let the Tea Party label fool you.
