How Christi Gillespie Tried To Destroy The Rand Paul Campaign.Submitted by Thomas on Mon, 01/18/2010 - 00:05
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..
