Trojan Horse? Shady La. co-chairs named for Paul campaignSubmitted by samadamscw on Tue, 01/24/2012 - 01:37
Folks, this in today on The Dead Pelican:
So what's the big deal? This sounds awesome right?
Well, read that last article again...
That's right - Charlie Davis was instrumental in pulling together at the last minute the "Win one for the Gipper" "pro-life/pro-family" slate at the 2008 Louisiana Caucuses that pretended to be non-pledged, but were really supporters of Huckabee and McCain.
They scrambled the slate together, many of whom filed in the special "extended deadline" the LAGOP set up when they discovered the Ron Paul campaign had the ballot lines nearly cornered for a clean sweep victory.
Essentially, this slate, and Mr. Davis were responsible for Ron Paul LOSING the caucus last time. Now he's a CO-CHAIR of the campaign here?
Am I missing something?
What genius made this decision?
Then there's the not small matter of state Rep. Joel Robideaux. He was until the last election an Independent, but was elected last October as a Republican. Robideaux has a string of non-conservative / anti-liberty votes. Now he decides to endorse Paul and be named co-chair?
Someone tell me these positions are largely ceremonial.
I'm all happy these two have had an apparent change of heart, and at least give lip service to "seeing the light" on fiscal conservative issues, but I wouldn't go trusting them with my campaign on that move.
Perhaps there is more to the story, I sure hope so.
