Ray Allen, Nancy Russell and the 7th District Committee Members Should be Investigated for Possible Wrongdoing

According to PJ Media:

Sources tell PJ Media that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s long-time top consultant, Ray Allen, has “angrily” stated to multiple individuals that he intends to bankrupt the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV), to install his own people throughout all levels of RPV’s State Central Committee, and to rebuild the RPV with money from Eric Cantor’s donors.

This past week Ray Allen stood at the 7th District Committee Meeting and offered what he said would be a non controversial motion that the Committee withdraw from the “Cantor Victory Fund” where a total of $139.352.00 was earmarked for the 7th District Committee. And since they are “winding down” the “Fund” (due to Eric Cantor’s loss in the primary), the funds would be immediately available and a “check would be cut the next day”.

(Note: Allen was given the proxy vote of another member.)

So how much of a no brainer was that? The motion passed immediately.

And immediately after that, Don Williams proposed a budget that was obviously drawn up to bankrupt the 7th District Committee as Allen had promised to do. Nancy Russell, Don Williams and Don Boswell led the charge and in seconds, $400,000 was removed from the 7th District budget with $300,000 of that going to the RNC and the NRCC.

According to the Washington Post:

Cantor loyalists who still sit on the 7th District Committee outmaneuvered Brat supporters to strip the committee of most of its budget — nearly $400,000. In a savvy bit of parliamentary procedure, they voted to send the money to national GOP organizations based in Washington — leaving empty-handed the conservative activists who planned to use the money to build a get-out-the-vote operation to complement Brat’s fledgling campaign.

The maneuver prompted an angry outcry from Brat’s camp.

“They just wanted to get the money out of the committee so we wouldn’t have it. It was retribution,” said Robert Stuber, a party leader from Spotsylvania County who supported Brat.

So now what happens to the $300,000? At the 7th District meeting the Cantor allies admitted that there was no way to ensure the money would come back to the 7th District.

But the question is, will any of that money that Ray Allen just moved to DC come back to line his own pocket in the form of “consulting fees”? And how much of the money will “trickle down” from these national organizations through other entities or politicians – like Barbara Comstock’s Campaign and Ed Gillespie’s Campaign,  both of which have paid Ray Allen and just benefited DIRECTLY from 7th District funds going straight into their treasuries.

There is a huge conflict of interest on Allen’s part in procuring funds from a committee he has already said he planned to bankrupt flowing through a political campaign and directly into his pocket.

Something is rotten here and Allen and all those who conspired with him to bankrupt the committee should be investigated by state or federal election officials, or perhaps federal, state and local jurisdictions. I think there is little doubt that Allen will pocket cash from the money he just moved out of the 7th District coffers.

This is as imaginative a money scheme as I have ever seen.

    Remember Mr. Ray Allen’s promise to get revenge by bankrupting the VA GOP? Yep, looks like he’s a man of his word alright:

    Remember when HA GOP CHair Nancy Russell sent a letter using her title to all HA GOP members explaining why she was endorsing Linwood Cobb over Fred Gruber for 7th District Chairman?

    Shouldn’t she have the same common courtesy to at least also send a letter to all HA GOP members explaining why she voted “yes” to essentially bankrupting the same 7th district GOP she is supposed to be representing and working 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.
