The Swamp pulling out all stops to save Tilli$$$

  Apparently, it’s SOP in DC GOPe circles to get all hard-nosed and mafioso on consultants who dare to work for primary challengers to congressional incumbents.  (Especially those incumbents who are in good standing with leadership and the lobbyists.)   Here’s one example that touches…

NC-03: Gambling on the FEC not paying attention.

  Scott Dacey’s back.  The third-place finishing (2018), Indian casino-lobbying, former Paul Shumaker client is poking around in the 2019 edition of the Third Congressional District’s GOP primary.  Sources on the ground in the district tell us he’s trying to help GOP candidate (and Thom…

NC-03: Is that sulphur I smell?

  I knew that the wide-open opportunity in this congressional race would be too much for NCGOPe uber-consultants Dee Stewart and Paul Shumaker to pass up. All sorts of indicators are telling me that this duo  are beating the bushes to get former state senator…

Therrible Thom’s really bad, really awful, therrible SELLOUT

  I know.  Talking about Thom Tilli$$$ selling out is starting to sound like a broken record.  His record of lying, backstabbing and all-around underhanded moves is so extensive and expansive that one tends to get nose-blind, or used to it.  My favorite line about…
