Libertarian Gary Johnson supporter not the chair needed for Hanover GOP

Libertarian Party logo 1By Lynn R. Mitchell

Current Hanover County Republican Committee Chairman Nancy Russell is being challenged at Thursday’s mass meeting by Russ Wright, a Libertarian whose allegiance in 2012 was to the Libertarian Party instead of the Republican Party even after he vowed to support the GOP candidates. Because of that, Wright cannot be trusted to represent and promote the Republican Party and Republican candidates as chairman in Hanover.

In 2012, Wright entered his name as a candidate for State Central Committee, National Delegate to the 2012 convention, and Presidential Elector for the Republican Party of Virginia. Three times he signed a full-fledged Statement of Intent affirming he would support the Republican candidates:

“In accordance with the Qualifications for Participation set forth in the State Party Plan, I do hereby state my intent to support all of the Nominees of the Republican Party in November 2012.”

However, just months after signing his support — two months before the crucial November 2012 election — Wright donated $250, on September 18, 2012, to Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson who was running against the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. By supporting Johnson, Wright was also supporting Johnson’s extreme Libertarian platform that is at odds with the GOP platform on many issues including legalized prostitution; cutting all aid and support to Israel; soft on immigration; pro-choice; legalized drug use; soft on national security.

Mike Thomas responds to baseless claims by blogger

In case you missed this Saturday post….

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Republican Party of Virginia First Vice Chairman Michael Thomas responded to the latest click bait rambling attack of blogger Tom White and his baseless accusations on Donald Williams, the Chesterfield County Republican Committee, the Hanover County Republican Committee, and by extension, the Republican Party of Virginia. Mr. Thomas wrote:

Dear Tom:

I believe you are way off base with your attacks on Donald Williams and the Chesterfield County Republican Committee. There are no requirements for RPV or any local committee to allow audio or video recording of meetings. None. Not in IRS regs, not in federal or State code, not in the RPV Party Plan.

In fact, the RPV General Counsel provided guidance in 2008 that committees MAY adopt restrictions – or even a prohibition – on recordings. Quite a number of committees have such a policy, including the Chesterfield County Republican Committee, which adopted one…

Quite a number of committees have such a policy, including the Chesterfield County Republican Committee, which adopted one over 5 years ago. Not last week. Not last month. Not even last year. More than five years ago.

From Nancy Russell: This is how 7th Congressional District money was distributed

By Lynn R. Mitchell

From Madam Chairman Nancy Russell of the Hanover County Republican Committee in regards to the distribution of donations from the 7th Congressional District funds:

I know there are a whole host of comments circulating the web regarding Wednesday night’s 7th District meeting regarding the disposition of funds in 7th District Accounts. I have been a member of the committee since 2011 and have voted on disbursements each year. The 7th District has always had a large amount of money available due to the success of fund raising efforts to the Cantor Victory Fund. The large majority of the donations made to this fund were in the $10,000 range from donors outside of the 7th District.
