Dr.-Evil-One-Million-DollarsThe North Carolina House’s very own Doctor Evil — Speaker Tim Moore — is pledging to donate the astronomical sum of one million dollars to the House GOP caucus campaign fund this week.  THAT is a welcome thing. Since all indications are that particular campaign fund is nearly toes-up.

I am told the fund balance is not half of what it was this time in 2014.  The cash got drained in MarchSPEAKERMOOREPORTRAIT thanks to leadership’s decision to try to save Nelson Dollar, David Lewis, and Charles Jeter from aggressive conservative primary challengers.

So, beyond the big check, how else is the Imperious Leader planning to pull the caucus’s chestnuts out of the fire — given that its chief fundraiser has resigned in disgrace and the campaign fund balance has fallen into dire straits?   Sound the alarm so the influence-seekers will come a-runnin’. (Come and Get it!)

Señor Tim is the star attraction at a fundraiser the night of August 17th at the Raleigh offices of Mills Construction.  Fred Mills, one of the grand poo-bahs at that firm, has been very generous with both sides of the aisle in Raleigh.  (Lotsa Democrat rogues here as recipients.

  1. Mr. Clifton,
    Thanks for the information. I have enjoyed your weBsite for sometime.

    I was hoping you or someone might be able to answer a question for me. I have heard the house account spent money in primary election races from 2 or 3 sources and now you are saying it too. I have looked on the state board campaign fund reports and i have not found anything that looks like mischievous spending in the primary timeframe. Could you tell me where you found this? Im not the best with computers and may need my grandsons help but I appreciate any help you can give.

  2. When David Lewis pulled that dishonest last minute stunt to create those ”affiliated party committees”, his clique swore up and down that they would not use caucus funds in primaries. From this article it would appear that they lied through their teeth and did so the very first opportunity that they had, and they drained the account to support liberal Big Government supporting Obama Republicans in primaries against conservatives. One of those who benefited was that despicable scoundrel David Lewis himself. Another one of the beneficiaries has just resigned his seat and his nomination over some scandals.

    Any Republican who believes in the principles of the party should NEVER give a dime to the House caucus. Give your money to specific legislators or to the conservative legislative fund set up by Rep. Chris Millis. The House caucus campaign fund plays games against conservatives in primaries, just like the national party Congressional and Senatorial committees it is patterned after.

    I wonder if the NCGOP allowed its super cheap mailing permits to be used in the primaries by the House caucus? If they did, some heads should roll at NCGOP.

  3. John, I may be wrong, but the House has not established their affiliated party committee. The Senate has, but I am not aware that the House has done so yet. If I am wrong I stand corrected. Yes the law says they can, and the Senate has, but not yet the House.

    1. If they were still running it through the party, is NCGOPe and its fearless leader Dallas (Robin is just a figurehead) complicit in putting money into primary races?

      Of course, a more clever way to do it would have been to tell the special interest contributors (the party oriented ones might balk) to just give the money they would usually give to the caucus to a different fund instead, which could then funnel the money on to the threatened liberals without a paper trail going through a party or quasi-party committee. They could even direct them to send it straight to the liberal primary candidates. Such a scheme would still leave the caucus committee short of general election money at this stage from diversion of funds to primaries. It would, however, obscure the paper trail.
