It has been a lingering question some have asked for a couple of years: could the Democrats have infiltrated the tea party and libertarian ranks to drive the internal takeover of the Republican Party and defeat Republican elected officials?
An interesting article in Friday’s Washington Post (see I’m a Democrat and I helped the tea party unseat Eric Cantor) seems to confirm those suspicions. Democrat Brian Umana wrote:
The truth is that Cantor’s electoral demise did not occur overnight. It was the culmination of more than four years of grass-roots organizing, from both the right and the left, to unseat him. Behind the scenes, Cantor opponents who otherwise had little ideological common ground cooperated in his demise. I know, because I helped engineer it.
