Feckless Hanover Republican Committee Chairman Nancy “Pelosi” Russell – An Example of Her War on Conservatives

Nancy Russell is the Feckless Chairman of the Hanover Republican Committee. In a post last night, we gave some of the reasons for you to come out tomorrow March 10 at 7:00 PM (GET THERE EARLY!) to vote her out as Chair and vote in Russ Wright.

Here are some more.

Just prior to the 7th District Convention, Nancy Russell emailed an endorsement of Linwood Cobb to the entire committee. Others were not given access to the list of GOP emails to do the same. She claimed it was a personal endorsement, yet it went out to the Committee. the Chairman is supposed to remain neutral and support ALL candidates.

During the Convention, I was appointed as a teller for Fred Gruber. Part of my duties were to keep an eye on the voting. I spotted the allotment of ballots that had been given to Nancy Russell in a tote bag along with her personal items. This was a potential for ballot tampering, mixing them in with her personal effects. We do not know if there were any other ballots in there. I notified Russell’s husband and he removed them from the tote. I did not see anything that looked like pre marked ballots in what he removed from the bag, but it was not a good thing to do. Especially after we all received her endorsement of Linwood Cobb and knew that she was biased in this election.

And when the first round of votes was called for the temporary Chairman to preside as Cobb was a candidate, Russell was on the far side of the Hanover section asking people who supported each temporary chairman to stand, one row at a time. Due to the distance and the noise and the fact not everyone was expecting to be told to stand when your row is called, most at the far end of the rows, away from Russell could not hear. Realizing that some people were not aware a vote was being taken, I began to relay Russell’s instructions from the other end of each row, so folks would know they were supposed to stand and be counted when their candidate was called by row. Russel screamed across the row at me to “sit down and shut up”. As a teller for Gruber, I refused. It was my charge to make sure things were done fairly.

And today I hear that there are accusations that the person challenging Russell, Russ Wright, may have supported a Libertarian candidate in the past running against a Republican. Seriously? About 4 years ago former state Delegate Bill Janis ran against the Republican candidate for Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney. A number of Hanover Republicans supported Janis who was running as an Independent. These people included Lt. Governor Bill Bolling. And by the rules, if you support or endorse a candidate running against a Republican, you have automatically resigned. I spoke to Bolling and told him that after the election was over, as a Magisterial District Chairman I would like to bring his name up in the next meeting to be readmitted as a member. Bolling told me he didn’t know if he even wanted to be a member. My wife was with me and was stunned. When I mentioned this to the executive committee, Russell was adamant that all of these people be brought back on a voice vote with not so much as expressing a desire to be reinstated as members. I reminded her that Bolling indicated the opposite to me.

We sent emails back and forth over several days with several members considering resigning. In the end, Russell pushed them all back into the Committee without naming them or even ascertaining that they wanted to be readmitted. And as I think back to the treatment Nathan Cox, a former member, was given by the Committee, he was called out by name and they said he was kicked off the committee (not just considered to have resigned as the rules say). And Cox did not receive the same treatment as Bolling and the rest of the establishment that supported an independent did. Why was Cox treated differently? Because his “sin” was supporting Floyd Bayne who ran against Eric Cantor, Russell’s Lord and Master.

And recently I was asked to attend a meeting for a Conservative friend who was away on a trip. It should be noted here that Russell spends a considerable amount of time tracking attendance and making sure anyone who misses 3 meetings is purged. So I attended the meeting for my friend to keep up his attendance. I carried his signed paper proxy in and handed it to the person at the door. I signed in and noted that I was there as a proxy. Later I found out that Russell determined that my proxy attendance would not count because they failed to ask me to sign a loyalty oath. Had they asked I would have signed without hesitation. And later, when I found out that Russell did not allow my proxy (because of their failure) I offered to sign one then. I was not allowed to do so. Russell’s war on Conservatives, you see.

If we are going to win the White House in November, we need all cylinders running. With Nancy Russell, this is not possible. She is not concerned with anything but keeping power for the Cantorites. And now that Hanover has been moved into the First District, she is doubling down to try to prevent another great Conservative like Dave Brat from being elected in the 1st.

Russell is a hyper-partisan RINO who has no business being Chairman.

Come out tomorrow night and vote for Russ Wright.

The mass meeting starts at 7:00 PM but I expect dirty tricks and advise that you get there by 6:00 PM. the meeting is at the Hanover Courthouse complex in the Admin Building Board of Supervisor’s room.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO VOTE FOR CHAIRMAN!!!! Just a Republican and a registered voter.

Jim Gilmore Using Party Traitor Boyd Marcus as Advisor. Shame On Jim Gilmore!

Un – freaking – believable.

Do you remember the turncoat Boyd Marcus who defected to Terry McAuliffe’s campaign? Marcus was a long time Republican Political insider and strategist. He refused to support the Republican in the race – Ken Cuccinelli – and instead, took his decades of political secrets to the McAuliffe Campaign and elected a Democrat to Virginia’s highest office.

From NBC-12

Marcus cashes in on McAuliffe switch

It was one of the biggest stories of the election, long time GOP strategist and veteran campaign operative Boyd Marcus bolted from his party to back the Democratic nominee for Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Marcus, who has served as an aide to Virginia GOP titans like George Allen, Jim Gilmore and Eric Cantor had been running Lt. Governor Bill Bolling‘s campaign for Governor. That was before the Republican decided against a convention competition with the eventual nominee, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

Shortly after Bolling decided to get out of the race, he made it clear he would not support Cuccinelli and even dangled the idea of a long shot independent run for Governor. He eventually decided to stay out of the race all together.

But while Bolling has remained neutral (at least publicly) his confidante Marcus announced that he would go “all in” for McAuliffe. Marcus had never supported a democrat before putting his support behind McAuliffe.

Support isn’t the only thing Marcus offered. He also offered McAuliffe his expertise, something the candidate was eager to take advantage of. He hired Marcus and his newly created firm  Marcus Consulting LLC.  The new formation of a company was a necessity after Marcus decided to leave the party. His long time business partner Ray Allen, who is a close adviser to Cantor, remained loyal to the GOP.

Today we are getting our first glimpse as to how much McAuliffe is paying Marcus for his services. McAuliffe’s newly released September financial disclosure report shows Marcus’s company receiving twodifferent payments of $10 thousand each.  (on 9/4 & 9/26) Read the rest here.

So guess who Jim Gilmore runs to when he decides to run for president?

If you guessed now Democrat Strategist Boyd Marcus, you would be correct.

Fox news reports:

The campaign for 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jim Gilmore is downplaying the candidate failing so far to qualify for the second GOP primary debate of the season, arguing it will eventually recover from the late start.

Gilmore, a former Virginia governor, essentially needs to get 1 percent of the vote in major polls to qualify for the Sept. 10 debate.

“We didn’t expect to be on the polls,” Gilmore senior campaign adviser Boyd Marcus told on Wednesday. “We’ve been in this campaign for 13 days and we’re against people who have been here for months and months. We started off behind, and we’re going to catch up.”

The debate is being hosted by CNN and will be at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, in Simi Valley, Calif.

Right now, Gilmore is not listed among the top 16 GOP candidates, according to an averaging of the most recent polls by the nonpartisan website South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is in 15th and last place with 0.6 percent of the vote.

“We’re used to making things work that people say can’t be done,” said Marcus, Gilmore’s former chief of staff. “We will start climbing the lateral polls after we are campaigning for a while.”

Seriously Gilmore?

Any Republican that offers support to Gilmore while Boyd Marcus is on his payroll or advising him in any capacity should be thrown out of the party.

The Republican Party of Virginia now bans anyone that supports a Democrat from all party functions for 4 years, and the witch hunt is a constant harassment mechanism for Conservatives. Yet Gilmore hires a defector who is responsible for the McAuliffe victory.

Shame on you Governor!

You should pull out of the race now. You have proved that your decision making is abysmal by hiring a traitor.

We will publish the names of Republican donors that help Gilmore pay Marcus salary as soon as they are available.
