Nancy Russell and Ray Allen Vote to Bankrupt the 7th District

Fred Gruber held his first meeting as Chairman of Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

A lot of us were wondering if the money in the 7th District treasury had vanished as Linwood Cobb and Eric Cantor were shown the door. But the good news was, there was $470,261 – nearly half a million dollars in the bank.

Well, $330,909 was in the bank and another $139,352 was sitting in the “Eric Cantor Victory Fund” earmarked for the 7th District.

When I walked in the room and saw Ray Allen sitting at the table with the voting members, I gasped a little. After his attempts to slate and disenfranchise Republicans, two big losses – Cobb and Cantor – what the hell was he doing here?

Turns out he was a proxy for someone. Sitting near Allen was Mike Thomas.

Walking into a room with Thomas and Allen is a bit like walking in a room with Osama bin Laden and Ted Bundy. You just know nothing good will come of it.

And when Ray Allen opens his mouth, normally something foul comes out. And tonight was no different.

Allen offered what he billed as a non-controversial motion. In order to have the Cantor Victory Fund check cut, the 7th District needs to withdraw from the PAC and then a check would be cut tomorrow.

The vote was unanimous. The check is on the way.

Why does that make me feel queasy?

A budget was handed out that kept the money in the 7th District, helped out the candidates and tried to pick up the slack from the lack of funding available from the RNC this year, mostly because Ed Gillespie is not seen as a candidate that stands a chance and the money will be better spent on Senate races where a Republican is at least in the game. The proposed budget had money for call centers and other items to help our Republican candidates. This budget also left some money – about $200,000 as I recall, in the treasury with an eye on 2015 when every state House and Senate seat is up for election.

And it acknowledged the fact that with Eric Cantor gone, the special interest money Cantor was able to bring in from out of state sources hoping to influence the Majority Leader on things like Amnesty and bailouts wasn’t going to be flowing. The 7th District will have to make due like other Virginia districts.

However, there was a second budget proposed, this was the Ray Allen bankruptcy “poison pill” designed to drain the treasury And send the money to Washington for the most part where the Consultants (like Allen) can reach it.

The budget sends $150,000 to the RNC and $150,000 to the NRCC. BOOM! $300,000 gone like that. And the rest, maxed out to the candidates.

So now it was clear why Ray Allen wanted to have the Cantor Victory Fund send the check immediately. He had already planned to take that money too and hand it to his Washington friends.

And Nancy Russell was all in on this irresponsible and punitive plan to bankrupt the 7th District and Russell and Allen were successful.

And if anyone is unsure why Nancy Russell should be removed as Chairman, I can think of no better reason than her vote to drain the district. Russell is obviously a bitter and angry woman at the loss of her friends Cobb and Cantor.

Not only has Russell made the Hanover GOP irrelevant, she has actively worked to drain the money from the district treasury to damage the party in hopes of a Cantor “rescue”.

What a shame.

I hear that Barbara Comstock and Fast Eddie Gillespie are using – or at least were using – Ray Allen. Anyone that cares about the Republican Party – or what is left of it after the rape and pillage tonight – would be a fool to support ANY candidate that pays Allen a dime.

If you want to know what is rotten in the Virginia Republican Party, it is the cancer Ray Allen.

    HANOVER REPUBLICAN VOTERS:

    If you are outraged over Hanover GOP Chairwoman Nancy Russell and others from Hanover who voted to bankrupt the 7th District bank account last night donating ITS funds to national GOP COMMITTEES so that LOCAL victory call centers for November elections ( SENATE AND CONGRESSIONAL) wouldn’t be funded call her- her cell number is

    804 839-0917 AND HER HOME PHONE NUMBER IS 804 883-5265. DEMAND THAT SHE EXPLAIN HER ACTIONS TO THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS IN HANOVER COUNTY.

    CALL HER TODAY AND LEAVE A MESSAGE TO RETURN YOUR CALL. LET HER KNOW YOU WILL NOT CONTINUE TO SUPPORT HER AS CHAIR. WE NEED NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE HANOVER REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE.

    • RivahMitch says:

      How silly! Calling her will accomplish nothing…For those in the 7th district who were robbed, something more forceful and personal is called for.

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
