This is the hallmark of squishes, they fold under pressure. Ally Mutnik, the left-wing activist blogger for Politico is after another scalp. It appears that she was once again working with the same liberal democrat opposition researcher to smear GOP Congressional Candidates. This time, the hit job comes before the primary is over.
Unlike Ted Howze (CA-10), the person being attacked actually made the videos herself and is solely responsible for their content. She rails on Islam.
In recordings obtained by POLITICO, Greene described Islamic nations under Sharia law as places where men have sex with “little boys, little girls, multiple women” and “marry their sisters” and “their cousins.” She suggested the 2018 midterms — which ushered in the most diverse class of House freshmen — was part of “an Islamic invasion of our government” and that “anyone that is a Muslim that believes in Sharia law does not belong in our government.”
In other videos, she directly compared Black Lives Matter activists to the neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members who marched at a white nationalist rally three years agoin Charlottesville, Va., denouncing them all as “idiots.” And Greene forcefully rejected the notion there are racial disparities in the U.S. or that skin color affects the “quality” of one’s life: “Guess what? Slavery is over,” she said. “Black people have equal rights.”
When asked for comment on quotes from the videos, Greene campaign manager Isaiah Wartman did not deny their veracity but declined to elaborate.
“Thank[s] for the reminder about Soros. We forgot to put him in our newest ad. We’re fixing that now,” he wrote in an email to POLITICO. “Would you like me to send you a copy?”
(Note the typo in the Politico article snippet)
It looks like Kevin McCarthy’s weakness and failure to vet candidates is going to cost the GOP a chance at retaking the house in 2020. Two of the top criticisms of McCarthy is that he has no coattails (aka fundraising) and that he is extremely weak under pressure. It also looks like he may have been too lazy to vet candidates for Congress as well.
Congressman Tom Emmer should also be fired as NRCC Chairman for failing to vet candidates – especially since he seems to be so concerned about Politico’s stories about candidates now.
They can’t have it both ways. They can not allow left wing outlets to do opposition research they refused to do while also acting outraged over the stuff that comes out. Worse, in the case of CA-10 Candidate Ted Howze, they lynched him before all of the facts were out. This person in GA-14 makes the stuff that was said about Howze look like child’s play.
Also note that Politico labeled the comments of the GA-14 candidate racist as a statement of fact. McCarthy and Emmer conceded that fact in both cases. Anyone running for congress should know that McCarthy will not back them up and they will be under the bus at the first sign of “racism” regardless of merit.
There is now blood in the water for a redux of what Larry Flynt did in the 2000’s to attack Republican leadership. He used his resources and media connections to nail several Republicans while giving democrats a pass. Politico has taken that mantle in 2020. The actual offenses of the Republicans are secondary – Politico is now a part of the Deep State and they have cowered GOP leadership.
BTW – look for Politico to continue to smear more GOP candidates as McCarthy and Emmer’s weakness have essentially allowed open season.
P.S. This makes what Jessica Patterson and Scott Winn did in CA-10 look even worse than it did before. They have in essence allowed their personal conflicts of interest to empower a pseudo journalist to declare open season on Republicans. We deserve better.
