McCain operatives are back at work attempting to remove conservative precinct committeemen from their elected posts by overfilling the allotted number of positions in key precincts and striving to scramble the intra-party election results in his favor. We witnessed McCain’s undermining actions in his orchestrated 2014 purge of conservative activists as reported by Breitbart, FrontPage Mag, and POLITICO, which described the conservative cleansing that took place at the time, using these words:
“As the longtime Republican senator lays the groundwork for a likely 2016 reelection bid, his political team is engaging in an aggressive and systematic campaign to reshape the state GOP apparatus by ridding it of conservative firebrands and replacing them with steadfast allies. The ambitious effort — detailed to POLITICO by nearly a dozen McCain operatives, donors, and friends — has stretched from office buildings in Alexandria, Virginia, where strategists plotted and fundraisers collected cash for a super PAC, to Vietnamese-American communities across Arizona, where recruiters sought out supporters eager to help the incumbent defeat the tea party. Team McCain’s goal? Unseat conservative activists who hold obscure, but influential, local party offices.”
The article went on to say, “The McCain team hasn’t decided whether it will launch a similar campaign to influence local races in 2016; its priority that year, it says, will be reelecting the senator.”
Fast forward. Here we are in the midst of the 2016 election cycle with early ballots in the hands of voters. And what do we see, but more of the same sleazy tactics, including overfills to oust conservative precinct committeemen and McCain operatives going door-to-door handing out cards with the names of compliant McCainites all too willing to do the bidding of Arizona’s very senior senator, who at age 80 is running for another 6-year term.
This identical tactic was used by former Sen. Jon Kyl in 2012.
John McCain is still enraged over the unprecedented and embarrassing censure by Arizona GOP elected state committeemen. His ire reached such a fever pitch that he was moved to collude with liberal Democrat Sen. Carl Levin, who represented Michigan for nearly four decades, and then-IRS official Lois Lerner to target tea party and other conservative groups, as reported by Judicial Watch.
Haven’t you had enough of the tyrannical tactics served up by John McCain? Dr. Kelli Ward (bio and video) is the vibrant, trustworthy and conservative alternative.
