Eric Cantor has left a wake of destruction in his path with his efforts to win reelection at all costs. His slating efforts in Virginia Beach disenfranchised Republican voters and even worse, turned away a group of African-Americans who were trying to become a part of the Republican process. Not a single black was named by Cantor in his slating efforts. The entire meeting is currently under protest and unless it is decided, the Conventions may be disrupted.
And in the latest revelations, the new Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia, Shaun Kenney was revealed to be on Eric Cantor’s payroll.
Great. The guy in charge of making sure the process is done legally and fairly works for the guy who is bending and breaking every rule in the book.
The RPV has become a laughing stock and the poster child for corrupt Republican antics – and Lord knows we have seen our share of corruption in the Virginia Republican Party.
I would call on Pat Mullins to initiate actions to dismiss Shaun Kenney immediately due to a conflict of interest. We really don’t want to waste valuable time with appeals and court proceedings in the aftermath of an untrustworthy election process.
Can’t we find someone who has not been bought and sold by Eric Cantor to do the job?
This is only fanning the flames that need to be put out. The last thing the RPV needed was a lightning rod.
And in case being on Eric Cantor’s payroll wasn’t enough, listen to what Kenney tells this group of people seeking amnesty. He tells them that “We know that there are a lot of people who are afraid of you.”
You know, Kenney is talking about those of us who insist that you enter this country LEGALLY?
Afraid, Shaun? Is that one of those dog whistle terms for racist we hear about? It is NOT racist to demand that the people who come to this country come here legally. If your first act as a prospective citizen is to break our laws, what does that tell us?
