How Christi Gillespie Tried To Destroy The Rand Paul Campaign.

My long time friend and Ron Paul supporter Mr.X upon having a meeting with Rand Paul yesterday in Bowling Green relayed some important info.
It was told to me that Christi Gillespie is the main reason their was a mass exodus of support for Rand..

Once you'll know you'll understand we are being fought.. They are fighting us.. I speak of those in the Republican party who don't want Rand to be elected.

Christi Gillespie has been a long time campaign manager for none other than Mitch McConnell. That is why she had so many contacts and why she came to the Rand Campaign so early on. Upon hearing information from my friend who spoke directly with Rand for the better part of an hour I feel it's my obligation at this time to let everyone know that she was actively pressuring Rand to attack McConnell.

Rand didn't take the bait let Christi know that he wasn't running against McConnell and that it would only hurt him with republicans in the State of KY and Nation to attack him. At that time Christi having worked her way up to Campaign Assistant Manager took all her contacts and information of people who were potential and current donating supporters. Upon her sudden and surprise departure from the Rand Campaign sent mass emails blatantly skewing Rands positions on many things from the Iraq Conflict to Abortion to Detainees in Guantanamo Bay.

Having knowledge of this has only strengthened my resolve. It means we are making a difference. I'm signing papers Tuesday to run for Magistrate in district 1 of my County where I live. I will be the only republican running.. so the primary is mine.

Take a stand where you live if you haven't already and if you've decided to drop support for Rand I would suggest taking a second look..

The Rand Paul campaign

had my contact info and I never received emails skewing Rand's position.

Can anyone confirm the claim Rand's contact info records were used in this way?

"their was a mass exodus of support for Rand.."

huh?

same here

that part of the post confused me too. couldn't really move past that point.

Setting the record straight

Allow me to reply, as I was not approached for the truth before this was published.


It was told to me that Christi Gillespie is the main reason their was a mass exodus of support for Rand..

What mass exodus? This is news to me. The candidate and the campaign manager have had two weeks since my resignation. I will not be the scapegoat for decisions made in my absence.

Christi Gillespie has been a long time campaign manager for none other than Mitch McConnell. That is why she had so many contacts and why she came to the Rand Campaign so early on.

Fact: I had many contacts and friends in the GOP, but I have never been a campaign manager for Mitch McConnell.

Upon hearing information from my friend who spoke directly with Rand for the better part of an hour I feel it's my obligation at this time to let everyone know that she was actively pressuring Rand to attack McConnell.

Fact: I was never involved with policy discussions, and I was never in a position to pressure Rand toward any decision. I left the campaign after I spoke with Rand and after he confirmed to me that he had abandoned his plans to reform the RPK in the interests of winning the election.

At that time Christi having worked her way up to Campaign Assistant Manager took all her contacts and information of people who were potential and current donating supporters. Upon her sudden and surprise departure from the Rand Campaign sent mass emails blatantly skewing Rands positions on many things from the Iraq Conflict to Abortion to Detainees in Guantanamo Bay.

Fact: I was the "Campaign Manager Assistant," as per Rand's decision that I would not be the "Assistant Campaign Manager." My original release had nothing to do with Iraq, abortion, or Gitmo, and no further "mass e-mails" have been sent out by me. If anyone has received emails that are allegedly from me on these topics, please forward them to me.

Having knowledge of this has only strengthened my resolve. It means we are making a difference. I'm signing papers Tuesday to run for Magistrate in district 1 of my County where I live. I will be the only republican running.. so the primary is mine.

Take a stand where you live if you haven't already and if you've decided to drop support for Rand I would suggest taking a second look..

If you want to announce your own race, then do it. Quit using my name and Rand's campaign to promote your own magistrate's race.

In closing, I am approachable. My intent was never to "Destroy the Rand Paul Campaign." All I wanted was to resign quietly. Having been denied the ability to do this by the campaign, I have had to tell my story in public. If anyone has any questions, feel free to email me at christi.m.gillespie@gmail.com.

Just so you know

we're pretty accustomed around here to taking things with a grain of salt.

As people become more experienced in life in general, they have been around organizations where people have recently left. They also know to take rumors about what the absent parties did, what current problems in the organization can be pinned on them, and under what circumstances they left with a grain of salt, too.

are you still supporting Rand

are you still supporting Rand or voting for someone else?

“Defiance of God’s Law will eventually bring havoc to a society.” - Dr. Ron Paul

Support of Rand?

I am no longer supporting Rand Paul. As a registered Libertarian in a closed primary state, I am unable to participate in the primaries. However, there is no one running currently that I would support or vote for.

so why not vote for Rand?

so why not vote for Rand? what did he do to anger you?
You can not see that Rand is the best?

“Defiance of God’s Law will eventually bring havoc to a society.” - Dr. Ron Paul

She can't

Per her statement that the primary is "closed" - she can only vote for a Libertarian in the primary.

If Rand becomes the Republican nominee, you can ask her again when she knows who the other candidates are.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

she should be registered

she should be registered Republican so she can vote for Rand.. evidently she does not feel Rand is the best candidate. Everyone has an axe to grind for some reason.
Some can not see the forest for the trees.

“Defiance of God’s Law will eventually bring havoc to a society.” - Dr. Ron Paul

I should be registered Republican?

Rebel,

I chose to re-register as a Libertarian upon my departure of the Rand Paul campaign. The GOP has abandoned the principles it once held, and they are no better that the Democrat party! The two-party system in this Country is broken, and is much of the reason for the mess we now find ourselves in. I am fighting this fight for my daughter, to preserve liberty for her, not for myself! In my opinion, I can do more to promote smaller govt. and liberty by working with the LP here in KY then I could by staying registered as a "R" for the sole purpose of voting for Rand. If he wins the Primary here in KY, I will consider voting for him in the general election. I want to help build the LP here in KY, and help KY gain ballot access, and I can best do that at the local level as a registered Libertarian.

you are wasting your time ...

rebelsoul has changed his handle.

He is simply trying to goat you.

You admitted to sending at least one mass e-mail and never

denied that it was of a negative nature towards the campaign.

That would mean you did not intend to go quietly and you took a calculated action to hurt the campaign.

I don't care what party you belong to. Such behavior is inappropriate. But I appreciate your clearing the air on the other matters and for calling out the OP on his grand standing.

E-mails

I sent out the first e-mail stating that I was resigning and that a public statement would follow, and then I send out a second one which contained my public statement. The second e-mail was never intended to go to the press, however, upon learning of the attacks against me as I was writing my statement, I realized that I had to forward my statement to the press to clear my name. Then, the third and final "mass e-mail" I sent was to defend myself and explain the reason why I had to go to the press.

All of these e-mails are available, and I would be happy to send them to you or to anyone else who is interested, so that you can judge for yourself from the original documents. Requests for these original e-mails should be sent to christi.m.gillespie@gmail.com, and I will send them to you at my earliest convenience. Thank you!

I just read one of them. Not

I just read one of them. Not making attacks on other politicians is a policy of Ron Paul. It is a classy move and also helps to keep the focus on the issues and away from demonizing individuals(a distraction that was used to turn the Gingrich Revolution into an anti-Clinton Revolution).

Wait

now your a Republican...again?

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Republican again?

No, I am now a registered Libertarian.

Very even handed response without personal attacks ...

Don't expect the same from Oruval.

I don't know if he is too stupid for a rational discussion or just too lazy.

Don't sweat it.

I wish you nothing but success on your journey.

And I think Thomas has recently had a breakdown so don't expect a rational discussion from him either.

I would suggest ignoring this thread from here on out, it can only get uglier.

Advice

Thank you for the advice. Best wishes to you as well!

I hate to sound cruel, but I honestly don't really care about any of this and that goes for the OP as well. We need Rand in there so that he can run for POTUS in 2012.

Ventura 2012

Judging by the Polling Trends

Seems she failed pretty miserably.

Don't forget she was a Grayson supporter too before she supposedly saw the light and joined with Rand Paul.

She's gone, good riddance, the campaign has already moved on. Looking forward to the next money bomb for Rand Paul too.

And what "mass exodus of support for Rand" are we talking about anyway?

Thank you for the info

5 stars.

That would explain some of the spam I've been getting.

I haven't gotten any anti-Rand Paul BS, but I have been getting funding solicitations from every RINO running, it seems.

Me, too, registered Libertarian in California

Donations are public record. I'm getting solicitations from everyone because of my contributions to Ron Paul.

If they enclose a postage paid envelope, I just put a Ron Paul slimjim in them and send them back.

Good Quote by whom?...Hugh Daniel?

Unlike "Who is Ron Paul", really don't know of Hugh Daniel. Please fill us in.

Hugh is a friend of mine.

He's a hard-line Libertarian, who's been pretty active in the fight for data security. He managed the Free S/WAN project for John Gilmore for several years.
