North Carolina Republicans have been subjected to all kinds of rhetoric about the fundraising prowess of one Dallas H. Woodhouse and his grandpa. Keep reelecting them to run the state party, and they will guarantee — with their awesome skills — to keep the cash rolling in.
Well, the party’s campaign finance reports, specifically the 2017 semi-annual year-end report, tell a story Dallas and Grandpa may not want you to hear. (Click the images below to enlarge.)
Shook Consulting is a well-connected fundraising consultancy that specializes in raking in cash for Republican candidates and organizations. From July 2017 to December 2017, the state party paid Shook over $60,000. Not bad for six months work with ONE CLIENT.
Hold on. It gets better:
This begs the question: WHY do we need Dallas and his grandpa? ANYBODY can hire “fundraising consultants.” ANYBODY.
One more side note. Greg Fornshell is the long-time accounting director for the NCGOP. According to the 2017 year-end semi-annual report, he got paid over $900 as “hotel room reimbursement.” According to the report, Fornshell lives in Raleigh.
