A right-winger blows the whistle on the lucrative Republican consultancy racket

For all their vaunted smarts about money matters, Republican fat cats have been played for suckers by campaign consultants and operators of Super PACS.

Don’t just take my word for it. Prominent right-wing blogger Erick Erickson of RedState.com has created quite a stir with THIS PIECE:

If money is the root of all evil, for the Republican Party evil is located on the fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza, Alexandria, VA 22314.

Strip away the candidate and coalition and it is on the fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza where the seeds of Mitt Romney’s ruin and the RNC’s get out the vote (GOTV) effort collapsed — bled to death by charlatan consultants making millions off the party, its donors, and the grassroots.

66 Canal Center Plaza is also why Jeff Larson, the Chief of Staff of the Republican National Committee, should not be put in charge of the autopsy of the GOP’s defeat. Multiple sources confirm to me that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has already put Larson in charge of the so called autopsy.

This is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. The fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza reveals a tangled web of incestuous relationships among Republican consultants who have made millions all while the GOP went down the tubes. Here the top party consultants waged war with conservative activists and here they waged war with the Democrats. On both fronts, they raked in millions along the way with a more fractured, minority party in their wake. And they show no signs of recognizing just how much a part of the problem they are.

Erickson names lots of names in his column. Read the whole thing.



  1. I once was exposed to the left wing consultancy racket of Gov. Blagojevich. He deserves every minute of jail time he is serving.

  2. Brian Opsahl

    I couldn’t agree more Doc: and it was my hope that the cell mate next to Blago would be 2 other guys… ones name would be Bubba and I would hope that this Bubba is a family friend of all those kids that burned in the crash with a semi and that he is gay and hung like a horse and his cell mate is named George Ryan….!! any questions…?

  3. Luke Fredrickson

    I was twice exposed to the right wing consultancy racket of the Broad Foundation. Eli deserves to be rehabilitated too…

    There is no single greater menace to educating children (outside of Happy Valley).
