Of mold, county GOP headquarters and slippin' out the back door (UPDATED)

(please scroll down for update)




Speaking of 3 am in the morning, I think my Republican friends may want to know about another early morning event: The GOP Headquarters were moved under the cover of a dark December night. The details are in this San Diego City Beat article by John R. Lamb: Whine and chocolates –GOP headquarters abandoned, left in ‘mind-boggling’ disarray, landlord says.

The machinations between a party boss and a landlord may seem unimportant in the wake of Obamacare repeals and Middle East turmoil. However, given the fact that the BIG RED WAVE of NOVEMBER didn’t reach California, it does. California is under one party rule. This is not good for democracy or the long-term success of our state. This article, I think, points to issues of party organization and integrity that hinder the success of the second major party in our great state.

Leslie at Temple of Mut does some outstanding citizen-investigative journalism in looking into just what is going on with the San Diego County GOP abruptly leaving their old digs and finding safe haven in the business offices of county GOP HMFIC, Tony Krvaric.

Read about it, here.

Our two face-to-face dealings with the San Diego County Republican Party were less than stellar experiences. There was both a lack of professionalism and urgency that we found discouraging a mere few weeks before a general election.

It's a long but entirely worthwhile read. Please do check it out.



(UPDATE #1): B-Daddy chimes in on the Krvaric case at SDRostra, commenter food fight ensues.

BwD: Your brother did an outstanding follow-up piece for the SD Rostra: The Turpitude of the GOP. The comments on his take are illuminating, and show in what low regard the elite, establishment, GOP Ruling Class holds for the Tea Party activists. I think it may explain your own experiences.

All I know about those guys is that the phone donation solicitor that called my grandmother-in-law was REALLY pushy, both before and after he figured out that I wasn't her,and that a second give-us-money call less than fifteen minutes after that had Elf informing them that they had been told to never call again several times, and if they called again he'd be reporting them for harassment.

All of that because a few years ago they were rude to her for "only" hosting events and "only" donating items for auction. (as well as getting others to do so-- at one point they added up the total take, and it was "considerable")

So a pox on the great-grandmother-bullying blankers.
