#ncga: David Lewis. On The Phone. Unhinged.

That’s how participants described a rather unusual conference call held Thursday among some House Republicans.  The meeting was moderated — some would argue dictated and dominated — by beleaguered House Rules chairman David Lewis. dl

Participants had to be cleared via Lewis operatives.  And the call was configured so that ONLY Lewis could talk.

The Rules chairman is the subject of an ethics complaint filed by a fellow Republican legislator. He’s also at the center of another embarrassing ethics-centered story. (And we hear at least two more scandals tied to Lewis are getting ready to hit the media.) 

My sources tell me Lewis spent much of the call painting himself as the victim of “a small group of Republicans out to get me.”  Lewis reportedly urged binker rollparticipants to put the kibosh on the “targeting” of him and other House leaders.

Lewis even reportedly told the group: “Even the media is tired of Republicans going after me and other Republicans.”

(Binky, is he referring to YOU?)

  1. “a small group of Republicans out to get me.”

    I’m assuming he’s talking about Republicans in the legislature because I believe the number of non-legislator Executive Committee members who’d like to see him gone, is sizable.

  2. Umm, everything I’ve been reading about the hot water this guy is in… is a direct result of his own actions.

    You dont get to keep the money AND keep making decisions like this about legislation AND still not get criticized harshly. 🙂

  3. I visited his Facebook page a month or so ago and could not believe the hateful and arrogant things he was posting about other Republicans. The sooner this guy gets the boot the better off the rest of us will be.

  4. The big question is when the Democrat prosecutors will indict him. My guess is about October for maximum political damage to the Republican ticket. This guy could damage more of the ticket than just his own race. Someone needs to lean on him hard to get out.
