House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders are planning a little jaunt with a “Republican” group devoted to defeating conservatives. It’s almost like they want to lose in November.
Next weekend, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and twenty-five other members of Congress are flying to Amelia Island to collaborate with a group dedicated to defeating conservatives in Congress.
The Republican Main Street Partnership’s offshoot “Main Street Advocacy” is hosting the event at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island. Steve LaTourette, a liberal Republican former Congressman from Ohio, is the face in front of the group. LaTourette is good friends with John Boehner. Behind the scenes, LaTourette’s group is funded by the vast left-wing conspiracy. According to an email inviting people to the event, “People that are attending have donated $5,000 to the PAC.”
Read the whole thing. The group is funded in part by groups backed by George Soros and labor unions. La Tourette said last year that his goal is to “beat the snot” out of the tea party. And as I mentioned before, he’s a nasty, bitter man.
