Google Narcissistic Personality Disorder and then compare it to Chad Mayes’ behavior once he orchestrated the Cap and Trade debacle. He is following a classic pattern.
Greg Wallis – who works for Chad Mayes is featured here tweeting criticism of Kevin McCarthy. Yes, Wallis (Mayes Staff) is slamming the moderate Republican icon for saying “My advice for Assembly members in Sacramento: You will not win the majority by thinking you can be Democrat lite” . This was the most used quote in the drive-by media from McCarthy’s speech at the CAGOP.
Apparenly, Mayes and his minions were triggered yet again. Young Mr. Wallis decided to reference the sliding republican numbers in office as a counter argument, suggesting that only Chad Mayes and selling out on Cap and Trade, Abortion, Taxes, Spending, Bonds, Bullet Trains and the like is the way to the electoral promised land for the California GOP.
Narcissists are constitutionally incapable of seeing their own faults. They are unable to comprehend when they are wrong. Chad Mayes truly believes that everyone else is wrong and is in the middle of what I have described as a Narcissistic Rage.
His temper tantrum was made worse as the fractured and petrified Assembly Republican Caucus could not muster the courage to expel him from leadership. Currently Mayes sits as “assistant leader” in the CAGOP Caucus. This has probably reinforced in Mr. Mayes mind how right he is. You can not deal with a true narcissist, you have to run them over with a truck (figuratively) and literally eviscerate them. That requires courage.
Mayes for his part has been tweeting incessant criticism of everything Republican since his reign of terror as Republican Leader ended two weeks later than it should have. He attempted to decimate fundraising agreements, shoved Assembly member Melissa Melendez in to the doghouse, stripped others of committee assignments and the like. While the drama of his ouster was unfolding, he was bullying people at events, yelling at others on the phone while raising tons of money from his real masters in the California Swamp.
Now that Mayes has gotten his 500,000 pieces of silver, he is repaying everyone for their loyalty by talking openly about running for Governor. The money he raised was for Assembly, the donors wanted him there to continue voting for their tax increases, corporate welfare and the like.
Note the timing of the story from Mayes, Friday. This was the start of the CAGOP Convention. There were a hail of tweets from disgruntled staffers over the course of the weekend attacking Steve Bannon, the CAGOP and others.
I received a call yesterday from a very well sourced political consultant friend that Chad Mayes has retained an out of state consultant to run his Governor Campaign. The individual had never heard of the consultant and did not write down the name.
That said, the pattern is consistent – Mayes is hellbent to be right. He reminds me of Tom Hudson. Mayes will destroy himself and everyone else around him in his rage over the deep-seeded sense of violation he is feeling.
I had told several people I did not think Chad Mayes would stay a Republican. He won’t. Even though Joe Justin runs Chad’s social media himself, Joe’s posts on behalf of Chad are accurate representations of Chad’s view of the world. The above article from Capitol Public Radio should be a further entree in to the mind of Mayes.
If you track the political “development” of Nathan Fletcher in San Diego (ironically, he spoke at the SD County Dem Convention this past weekend), they are tracking similarly. Both had affairs with Assembly members as an added bonus. While Chad Mayes’ flame-out has been more widespread – the basic building blocks of a self-centered political metamorphosis are there.
Mayes will run for Governor because he knows he will lose AD42, then he will blame the GOP for his defeat(s) and will thusly leave the GOP. His rampage won’t stop at trying to split GOP Votes to help John Chiang or Antonio Suave in to the runoff against Gay Marriage Gavin, he will find other offices to run for as a democrat in later cycles.
Chad Mayes has basically abandoned his partners in #CapandTrade, Marc Steinorth and Devon Mathis, both of whom are in serious political trouble. Again, following the pattern, Chad is looking out for Chad and must not believe the rumored $5MM+ independent expenditure to support the 6 traitors on the ballot in 2018 is not real.
