This is a thorough and eye-opening piece. But @GavnSample pulls his punches on the real villians/grifters of the bunch -- the campaign consultants and mail vendors who identify, groom, harvest, and then manage first-time, attractive, minority candidates. The consultants are the/
2/ ones getting rich here, not the candidates necessarily. Don't get me wrong -- I know some failed celebrity candidates who take to flying first class and staying in hotels that I, a modest country lawyer who makes payroll twice a months, would never frequent -- all with OPM/
3/ or Other People's Money. Flying alongside are the grifter consultants. Those candidates may run again, or not -- but 💯, the consultants will strike again, find a good-looking minority candidate to run against a loathed fixture of the left -- and ride that sucker to the bank!
4/ and who loses out? Candidates who actually CAN win, who last week lost their congressional race, or state senate or assembly or city council or mayoral race, by a few hundred or thousands of votes. They could have used that money and they could have run the extra ad, and won.
5/ That grift isn't free, isn't "victimless." There's only so-much small-dollar money to go around, and if it gets sucked up into the fetid maw of con artists bottom-feeders, it doesn't go to help elect future leaders with real promise. Same goes for scam-PACS.... often soft/
6/ landing places for former staffers, consultants, or termed-out politicos.... maybe it's a payoff for helping elect someone, or leaving their administation job gracefully, a banked favor...donors fund it, cash is pocketed, less money for meat and potatoes political needs. 😦

I find it interesting that BigLaw partners, who for their napalm/asbestos/big tech clients will refuse to accept service of process and will file every pointless motion to dismiss, are mocking/attacking citizens trying to get to the bottom of the outcome of an election...
2/ lawyers who paper over decades of systematic discrimination against women & minorities at their own firms with token hires & committees, who laid off lower-paid workers at the first sign of economic trouble, who defend “owners” of Nazi-looted art stolen from Holocaust victims,
3/ who defend every instance of sexual harassment/racial discrimination/insider trading/white collar crime/price fixing that their clients allegedly commit, who lobby the government to sell out our country to our enemies, who represent polluters, defective product manufacturers/

When this election is certified & over, we conservatives need to have a hard family conversation about several specific rotting organizations and a class of mediocre but cunning grifters who control the establishment. I say this as a volunteer, donor, & member of the RNC. #Change
Categories include think tanks, scam PAC promoters, certain consultants, professional credentialing cliques, many “former” Beltway bigwigs, media orgs, lobbyists, party officials who hold their positions through decades of controlled failure. And all the attendant saprophytes ...
We need party organizations, we need thinkers and doers and donors and believers, but we have been underperforming in many ways even as we continue to win elections and advance liberty. I’m an immigrant, an outsider, someone who gives my time & money because I love my country.

Thread: In case y'all are wondering who at the DOJ is in charge of election law matters at the @TheJusticeDept -- there are two places to look. First, the Civil Rights Division of DOJ, which is headed by Eric Dreiband, Don McGahn (former WH Counsel) law partner. DOJ says it sent/
2/ election personnel to 44 jurisdictions to monitor this election. Curiously, many of these are places with massive problems in this election including Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Maricopa County ... What did they observe exactly ... 🤔…
3/ Whatever it was, they aren't doing anything about it 🤷‍♀️and the @realDonaldTrump campaign is filing suits in several states to ensure that all & only legal ballots are counted. There is another deparatment of DOJ where election problems are addressed -- criminal division ...

Thread: I joined @FoxBusiness @EveningEdit this evening to discuss @SpeakerPelosi and the rejection of the #DemocratAgenda in the #2020Elections. Please watch and share!
2/ The #DemocraticParty is the party of extremists and that’s not what Americans want. Most Americans don’t want the far left agenda that @KamalaHarris had been pushing.
3/ I predict that there is going to be a war in the #DemocraticParty and the moderates in the party are going to come out on top if they want to do better in 2022.

Thread: I joined @FoxBusiness @LouDobbs tonight to discuss #TeamTrump legal action in the #2020Election. We have hundreds of lawyers on the ground in #Philadelphia and around the county to challenge election irregularities. Please watch and SHARE!
2/ There was also a federal civil rights lawsuit filed in #Pennsylvania to challenge the issues of barring #Republican poll watchers from being able to watch what’s happening, witness irregularities, and document and challenge them.
3/ The #TrumpCampaign also filed a lawsuit in #Georgia that challenged late absentee votes that were mixed in with the rest. The judge dismissed the case due to lack of evidence. What we’re seeing is #ThirdWorld level nonsense and it is disgusting that it’s happening in #America

Thread/ I joined @FoxBusiness @EveningEdit to discuss the #2020election, Republican vs. Democrat strategies to increase voter turnout, and the closing arguments for @realDonaldTrump and @JoeBiden. Please watch and SHARE!
2/ I discuss #Republican ground game to increase voter turnout. @realDonaldTrump’s door-to-door strategy reaches more demographics like elderly and minority voters than @JoeBiden’s digital strategy in #BattlegroundStates
3/ My reaction to the hysteria and #nonsense created by the media towards @realDonaldTrump. The fact is we have the best economy, our #taxes are lower, and we have historic growth even in the era of #COVID19
