UPDATE: RNC DENIES — RNC also trying to undo SCOTUS decision and return Texas to VRA federal oversight


This is absolutely stunning. There needs to be a mutiny over at the RNC and both Priebus and Hofeller (and whoever else is involved) need to go:

PJ TATLER – PJ Tatler has learned that staff at the RNC have been spending RNC donations plotting to do exactly what Eric Holder is seeking to do – return Texas and other states to federal oversight.

According to RNC sources frustrated with the race-based effort, paid RNC consultant Tom Hofeller ([email protected]) is spending RNC donations to develop race-based criteria to grab Texas and other states and place them back into federal receivership. The sources tell Tatler that nearly all of the members of the actual Committee have been kept in the dark about this effort, and no mention is ever made in RNC fundraising efforts – for good reason, because GOP donors would be furious.

Hofeller, a long-time RNC consultant on redistricting, has devised ways to force several states back into federal receivership by amending the Voting Rights Act to grab states and force them to obtain Washington D.C. approval. He is hopeful that Congressional Republicans will use his RNC-generated ideas to accomplish this goal.

So far, the Republicans in Congress have shown more sense than the Republicans paid by the RNC, and are cool to the idea of returning states to federal receivership.

According to Congressional sources, Hofeller has also been misrepresenting the importance of the law struck down by the Supreme Court. Hofeller has told Hill sources the federal election oversight law is essential to elect Republicans, something most Republicans on the Hill no longer believe is true. Hofeller has spread this message while being paid by the RNC.


UPDATE: RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer denies this report in totality:

“There is literally not one piece of its that is in any way even close to being factual or true. The RNC is demanding a full retraction and apology.”

    The RNC and the Rhinos on Capitol Hill are all in cahoots with the devil.

    • strangernfiction

      Tallgal83 Collective evil.

  • marketcomp

    This makes me think and ask the question of do we have people in the Republican Party working for the Democrat Party? Why so the Chris Christy’s and John McCain’s of the RNC always seem to be working against the Republican Party? What the hell is going on?

    • Tallgal83

      I think the RNC and McCain, Mitch, Boehner, Rubio, Cantor, and gang are simply just showing their true colors.

      • marketcomp

        Tallgal83 But there is something way more sinister at work here. Why destroy your own party? Not one democrat is openly and I assume covertly working to destroy the democrat party. So it only makes sense that these people are infiltrators orchestrated by these stupid consultants that Republicans choose to head their campaigns. That’s one reason I respect Sen. Cruz because his manager is outside of the Washington, DC cesspool. We MUST think of a way to eliminate these people and the only way is to make Barack Obama so toxic that no one would even want to come close to him. That’s the challenge.

    • applepie101

      If Schumer’s reference to ‘our republicans’ is any indication, the answer is Yes. I predict that McCain and others plan to switch party in the not-too-distant future. Trying to score brownie points with the enemy is a sign that someone’s about to turn coat and join them.

      It starts at the local and state levels – where each and every one of us can make a significant difference. Block captain, precinct chair, Party officer, delegate, volunteer – it deos not matter where. We can take the Party back.

  • SalvatoreAnello

    As if I needed more evidence. This absolutely clinches it. The two party system is a sham and has been for over a century. Reagan was obviously an aberration and so was Kennedy for that matter. China won the cold war, not us or the Russians. We haven’t seen real freedom in our lifetime and never will. That was clinched 1n 1913 with the sixteenth amendment nullifying the constitution as it was intended.

    • applepie101

      Comparing Capitol hill to Kabuki theater is a common metaphor, but it’s more like a puppet show, as both parties are the left and right hand of one puppeteer, The federal government has been the bane of this country.

    The only way to undo a SCOTUS decision is with another SCOUTS decision.
    This decision by the RNC is more like a SCROTUS decision.
    Kick ’em in the SCROTUS!

  • So now we have the democans and the republocrats.   There is no two party system.  And as Salvatore said they been at it for 100 years to destroy America.

  • The Sentinel

    Can someone tell me how is the GOP(e) is different then the Democraps again?
    Priebus reeks of scandal and corruption. He’s a Rove minion. Part of the corrupt string pullers. These people need to be exposed and removed – forcibly. And then Priebus can appear on MSNBC and CNN as a contributor, where he belongs.

    I think it’s pretty obvious at this point that the RNC and GOP are infiltrated with radical communists. The RNC and GOP better wake up, or they’re finished. Karl Rove may be one of them. This Preibus guy used to work for the left.

    • applepie101

      They’re finished as far as I’m concerned. Not one more vote for any republican on any level ever again. They’re democrats to me.


    OK…so Birch Society is correct, correct and correct

  • Larchmonter

    When will Conservatives and Libertarians wake up and realize the GOP is merely the right hand of the Elites. Never think they are an alternative. They are the DC establishment. They want to be a part of whatever is ruling America. They would negotiate a deal with any devil.

  • EchoMike

    Conservatives in MASS need to stop sending money to these Republican organizations. They don’t represent us anymore. In my opinion from here on out CONSERVSTIVES should be running against Washington. We need candidates who will stand up and denounce not just Obama and the Dems, but the Bush’s and the Roves, and the establishment as a whole. We need an agenda that will expose their addiction to power by requiring candidates who publically support term limits, cut/cap/balance, and true tax reform (not just getting rid of deductions to screw “rich people”) via flat tax or fair tax. Expose all of the ruling class for what they all are. Also the conservative message will never take hold again unless we can pry the public liberal indoctrination machine, known as public education, from their hands as well.

    • Laurel A

      EchoMike As soon as I posted RNC called…I blasted them. I wish they would get me off of their phone list but on the other hand message was sent.
      Any mail I get I write on it and send it back on their dime as well. Last one I sent a letter stapled to their fundraising request slip.

    • Longiron

      The GOP feel that conservatives do not have the guts to start a 3rd party. They will moan & groan and Rush & Levin will have some talking points but they will continue to try and change the party from within. Well, they are right! Until TP conservatives quit bitching and take action we are no different that the current RINO, GOP establishment. We will talk and say stuff of how bad the PUB party is but nothing will be done. Until TP conservatives realize the emeny is the RINO, GOP party and get them out as a main GOAL we will never to be able to take on the LIBS & DEMS. Look it now the establishment, RINO, GOP party do NOT want to defund the worst piece of legislation in our life time called Obamacare.. How much more is it going to take to WAKE UP ??????

  • applepie101

    Thanks for highlighting this, TRS. Even I was stunned by this one. And thank you to the RNC source who blew the whistle on this. It proves that at least part of the republican party is involved in a concerted effort to undermine our constitutional rights. That’s nothing less than treason.

    My Dad’s been voting Republican since 1973 and giving money to the RNC since like 1986 and just recently cut off his donations because of this type of stuff. Hopefully more people wise up and do the same.

  • DarrellGriffin

    I have long been an advocate for working within the GOP. To elect and promote conservatives from within the party structure to effect the national changes that are desperately needed.  I’ve always viewed “third party” as a wasted vote and a guaranteed Dem win…because it is.
    The problem with the GOP, is that the leadership lets the libs set the rules, pick the refs, break the rules, and then does the playcalling for the GOP…and the GOP accepts it.
    In 2010, the GOP was handed overwhelming victories on all fronts and they squandered it. They went back to business as usual, instead of doing what the voters mandated them to do. This is why they lost in 2012. No more, no less.
    This is why they will continue to lose, and why at this point, we may as well have a third party who will truly represent us instead of being the spineless Democrat Lite wimps we see today.

  • JimCohen

    The RNC is determined to commit suicide.

    I have contacted the RNC, Reince Priebus via his Facebook page (only way I could find) and the GOP at http://www.gop.com/contact-us/ about this story. After reading the full article by PJ Tatler, I was outrage and if true, I will only support Tea Party conservatives.
    Reince Priebus and his team must be replaced before I ever support the GOP again.

  • njmom

    We need a third party everyone and the sooner the better because the two we have now have betrayed us!

    • stage9

    • GWShrub

      Try this one:  

  • stage9

    I’m sorry, I know folks like Levin and others don’t believe in a third party, and I fully understand their reasoning for that, but I’m sorry the repugnantcan party is pure garbage. Someone in a another thread asked if there should only be a single party, because that’s what would happen if a third party was formed, but the fact is there ALREADY IS ONE PARTY! 

  • grayhairedvet

    These inside the beltway elites need to stop just talking among themselves because they’re dangerously close to not having any constituency whatsoever.  When they lose conservatives and the majority of libertarian voters salvaging a small percentage of the Latino vote isn’t going to help. I don’t know what’s happened to these birds, but it’s not good and probably terminal. They’d better hope that their pro-immigration sugar daddies have very deep pockets because everything else is going to just dry up and blow away.

    • lawngreen

      grayhairedvet  Even deep pockets won’t help them. They have to have an extremely high percentage of the votes to overcome the democrats’ control the voting process, which means there will be massive (democrat) fraud in however many elections take place between now and the obama regime’s takeover.

  • marketcomp

    I don’t believe anything a spokesman from the RNC says. Now, if Sen. Cruz, Sarah Palin, or Mark Levin says different, then maybe I will give what the RNC says some thought. Otherwise, they are liars to me.

      marketcomp Bingo!  The RNC got caught again.  The RNC is shoving the amnesty through too.  They are no different than the progs.

      • Tallgal83

        IMO the RNC is lying.  They are the ones merging themselves with the Dems.  They are the same people that back big government one day then say they are for small government the next.  Reince is a proven liar.

  • 1tootall

    Very illuminating.  Enough readers believed that it was true that it had to be denied.  That should tell us everything we need to know about the RNC.  I have hung up on their calls here at home.  I’m not sure what language they speak, but they continually miss the point.

    • red_red_head

      1tootall False. I simply contacted them to ask them if it was true. This was their response.

      • 1tootall

        red_red_head 1tootall Im not sure what you’re responding to here.  If you read the response in this forum, no one believes the denials!!!  IT speaks for itself.  I don’t know what you are saying is false.  sorry.

        • red_red_head

          1tootall I’m the one that contact the RNC to request a statement and to find out whether or not this was true. You can believe what you like, but the RNC isn’t going to demand a full apology and retraction if they’re in the wrong. red_red_head

        • 1tootall

          red_red_head 1tootall wow, you really are missing the point here.  Its that many in this forum don’t accept the denial.  Dont you understand that???  I’m not questioning the validity of your statement, and in fact, I believe it as you have recalled it.  But there are many in this forum who found that it WAS believable!!  THAT’S the point ….Get it???

        • red_red_head

          1tootall So you’ll believe the lie but not the one that’s actually verifiable and on the record. Gotcha. red_red_head

        • 1tootall

          red_red_head 1tootall Last try here.  I am saying that this was believable, even if it is not true.  Thus, because many in this forum FOUND it believable, (as opposed to something like Billy Graham stealing money, which is completely UNbelievable), it tells us that while NOT true, that it is believable means these guys are confused, compromised and vulnerable.  That’s what it means….  And that’s my last shot at trying to explain it.  You sound like you are willfully NOT getting it.  You sure you are not a troll???

        • lawngreen

          red_red_head 1tootall   I’m confused. I read the full article and didn’t see anything about a “full apology and retraction”. You stated above “This was their response” – what was their response? I didn’t see that. Was their response supposed to be in your comment, or elsewhere?

        • lawngreen

          Disregard my earlier comment. Conservator1 supplied the link.

        • lawngreen

          red_red_head 1tootall   Speaking for myself, I’m not willing to believe anything about either side of this story at this point. Since the RNC has apparently demanded a retraction and apology, fine, let’s see a thorough investigation, starting with who is the original source of this story?
          But the republican party has deteriorated to such an extent that the RNC’s denial isn’t sufficient for me. If they had not demied it, I suspect there would have been an instant and catastrophic drop in donations and membership, which is reason enough for their denial and also for the democrats to plant a story like this. It needs to be thoroughly investigated.
          It’s a shame that the GOP has become so untrustworthy that this is believable, but that is the case.

        • Orangeone

          red_red_head 1tootall Oh yes they will. The RNC continues to get caught in their lies.  Let’s look at the destruction of marriage, homosexuals adopting children they may later molest shall we.  Oh and amnesty will SAVE the economy, SAVE the republican party. Gag me.

        • paleophlatus

          Maybe that WAS their response………nothing .

        • 1tootall

          In view of j Christian Adams’ piece posted today on pj media, my instincts were on the money. And you should NOT be so quick to take the RNC at their word. Hope you are a bit wiser now.

      To the detriment of Republican ideas means in fact to the furtherance of liberal-progressive policies. Except for a handful of elected congressmen, the GOP needs to go the way of the dinosaur: extinction.

  • slhancock1948

    The RNC called me twice the other morning.  They’d called before, but I was in therapy sessions for a broken wrist and surgical repair.  My husband gave them an earful for me, but they thought they’d try me anyway.  I stopped both conversations at the very beginning and told them I would NEVER EVER donate tot he RNC again, have NOT been for 10 years or more now, and will ONLY donate to candidates that I investigate and feel I can trust.  I told them I did not want one dime going to even ONE RINO.  They tried to say that republicans were doing good things these days. I said, “still NO!” and hung up.

    • Orangeone

      slhancock1948 I’m much quicker in my response.  I tell them to solicit their illegal aliens.

    • NJK

      They called me a couple of weeks ago.  I told them I can’t support people who spend months fighting for illegal foreign invaders to our country, but never spoke up when their voters were being harassed by the IRS, in the 2012 campaign. 
      The RNC and GOP now consider Mexico their country and Mexican citizens their constituents.  They are traitors, plain and simple.

    • Morlock1

      @slhancock1948 – My husband and I don’t even take the calls anymore.  But what we did (until we stopped getting so many snail mail solicitations) was stuff – and I mean stuffed – the reply envelope not with our donation but with monopoly money and sent it back to them.  Told ’em we figured this was the only kind of money we could really trust them with – and the message was on their dime.

    Most? Wrong. There are NO Republicans who believe this is true, or ever believed it was true. It’s only RINOs who believe this, and I think they’re only pretending to believe it in hopes of leading LIRV (low information republican voters) to their doom.
    The exact opposite is clearly true. I think the dems have perfected a stupid virus and managed to infect the GOP with it.

    Has PJ Tatler apologized and retracted the piece?
    No. In fact, in their update, they write:

    “RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer is denying the claims made
    within this article, both via phone and by submitting comments below as

    Additionally, Tom Hofeller, mentioned in this article, claims via email that this article is “unequivocally false.”
    PJ Media not only has 100% confidence in the accuracy of the
    article’s contents, we offered Spicer, via email, three additional
    questions for the RNC to answer regarding their denial:

    1. Does RNC oppose a renewed Section 4 of the Voting
    Rights Act, or is the story accurate that RNC consultants are working on
    a fix?
    2. Does RNC oppose an amended Section 4?
    3. Was RNC’s staff involved in the 2006 reauthorization of Section 5 — advocating amendment and higher burdens on states?
    We stated that we would wait for their responses and would publish them in this article.”
    The RNC has some explaining to do, because it appears to many of us they have gone over to the other side.

    3. Most of the committee has NOT been kept in the dark about this?
    Add these to the questions PJMedia is asking in their update.

    RNC is of no further use to us.

    The RNC and particularly its chair had already proven they were not remotely acquainted with “truth, justice and the American way” when they did not keep their word regarding Ms. Bachmann.

    Now I am no fan of the RNC, but until I see something more than “sources tell us” it is just He said/She said.
    Names…Documents please. 

    What we see here is a part of the on going war inside both the party and politcs in general

    The GOP and the DNC are two sides of the same progressive party. The GOP hates conservatives and libertarians as much as the DNC does.

    Can you believe anything that comes out of Washington D.C.? I can’t anymore, they ALL LIE! I used to believe I could save our Country by voting for smaller govt., BUT this president has shown that he will break any law he wants and not enforce the laws that he is charged with enforcing.
    It is time to get together with your neighbors, and establish a plan to survive after the country goes down.

    I think we all can count on a couple hands the true conservatives, of which, I feel that Ted Cruz leads the way. I like Jeff Sessions, Mike Lee, Rand Paul most of the time, in the Senate and there are about 6-7 in the House that are pulling their weight.  We REALLY HAVE to take the 2014 elections and not with just republicans, but conservative republicans, or conservative 3rd party candidates.  This nonsense has got to stop.
