Gellatly and his PCO supporters are responsible for the destruction of the finances of the local GOP.

As regular readers know, the Gellatly Regime failed to pay a nickel ALL YEAR to the Court as required by the default judgment resulting from Gellatly blowing off the hearing resulting in the possibility of a $75,000 fine and the absolute responsibility for the $46,000 minimum fine the Party must pay.... thanks to him and his supporters.

I and many others tried to warn the RINO PCO Clique.  But not only they did they refuse to listen, they savaged myself and others who brought forward the information that the then-GOP Chair was a druggy, a thug, someone who had been popped 4 times on theft-3 charges, who blew off court dates for those and other court issues and who had been twice busted for DUI.

They didn't even care that Druggy blew off the court date with the AG's office that resulted in the horrific fine his incompetence cost us.

So, yes.  Those RINO PCO's who blew us off and enabled him are just as responsible for this as they were the election of Marc Boldt to county chair when they abandoned the GOP to support Boldt.

And, as expected, the delusional clown that caused all this through his incompetence and stupidity, not to mention his political and legal ignorance, is full of the typical excuses and self-justification that caused his tenure to be such a disaster in the first place.

Have a read at what this simpleton sent in to excuse his behavior:
Chairman Earl Bowerman,  
I have been made aware that an issue with the fine from the AG’s office has been posted on social media, which is causing a lot of confusion and misinformation as these things always do when not properly handled in a professional manner. I hope to provide some clarification and assistance. 
To give an accurate review what lead to the fine, this fine was assessed statewide to many political organizations as a per item over 100 dollars and over 30 days late, based on how many days late. This was for items from 2012-17, the majority being in 2015-16 and due to the failure to follow PDC filing laws by Kenny Smith, Michael Delevar, and Suzanne Garhardt. The agreement suspended 50% of the payment so long as we do not continue to violate PDC law, which has not happened to my knowledge since Joseph Delli Gatti was elected, for which we should all be grateful. 
The payments were to be made quarterly, with first payment due for Sept 1st. The payments are to include 50% of income excluding ALL costs associated with raising funds. This association was left broad to ensure it was to include the items discussed with the AG’s office to ensure we were left with the full ability to continue to operate; such as all marketing, required operational costs and all fundraising costs, as these are all required for us have the ability to raise funds. (my emphasis)
Our treasurer had reported to the board that we had a net loss between associated costs and income for the period due Sept 1st so no payment was issued. This was also the information given for the payment due in December although our board’s term had officially ended at that time. I received a voicemail from Todd at the AG’s office on December 3rd which he requested a return call, to which I attempted to return multiple times and left him voicemails as well. He then communicated via email on December 26th, after the new board was elected, to which I informed him of the election and the need to communicate with the current board members & chairman. 
After the information was sent to you, it was apparently immediately published on social media rather than reviewed appropriately. I am sorry that this happened, it certainly causes a lot more time to correct misinformation than releasing the accurate facts all at once. I have reviewed the letter and it appears as though the AG’s office is stating the quarterly statement included items that were not to be excluded for deduction prior to payment consideration, such as GOTV and meetings, but also stated as errors are items such as rent and utilities which are 100% accurate to have included in deductions as they directly affect the party’s ability to raise funds. 
With all this considered, the AG is simply requesting an accurate quarterly statement with income, deductions, and net income after deductions. IF there is net income after deductions, then 50% percent of this amount would be due. This would not be a large amount if there is one, and the party should have plenty of funds to handle what payment may be due if so. If our treasurer made an error based on misunderstanding the correct allowed deductions, I apologize on behalf of our board for not catching it as we did not review the provided statement to the AG and the AG’s office had never notified us about any concerns during our term. I believe that the process of providing the AG with the info they are requesting is a fairly easy request to comply with and it allows plenty of time to do so, as it is just revising the 2 statements. I am sure Joseph is willing to help as am I. If any amount is due, it will be FAR smaller than what the AG’s letter is insinuating.  
I can certainly understand your frustration walking into a mess with the AG’s office and the fines for a period outside of your control or responsibility, as I had to as well with this whole deal that was passed on to me by the previous administration. If I can help to clarify anything else, please let me know. I am sure the party appreciates your promise to resolve the issue from years ago, as many stated they gave you their vote with this as the primary reason. If you would like to set a time to meet with both the current and previous treasurer and you and myself, I am happy to make time to help clarify and resolve this. I wish you the best of luck, 
Regards,
David Gellatly
There's lies, damned lies, and Davey Gellatly.

First of all, I congratulate him on finding someone to edit his usual babbling.  As false as most everything in this self-serving pap is, the spelling and grammar almost makes it unrecognizable compared to his usual product.

Secondly, it would take Mr. Sipes about 60 seconds to blow this moron out of court, if he ever bothered to show up.

If Druggy's take was close to correct, NONE of the parties ensnared in this process would have to pay a thing towards their fines.  They would do what Druggy did, and fold ALL of the parties expenses into this umbrella of lies and wind up doing precisely what Druggy wound up doing: paying nothing.

Druggy seems to believe that anything he did to launder money automatically meant that it was right.  All money.  From all sources.  As the AG pointed out:
The CCRCC did not send any payment to the State on September 1, 2018 or on December 1, 2018. Further, the "accountings" sent in apparent attempt to justify not making these required payments were untimely and deficient on their face. These "accountings" improperly contain deductions for expenses that were not "incurred in collecting donations" made after June 1, 2018. Rather, it appears the CCRCC is deducting unrelated expenses, including, but not limited to for the following activities: GOTV, rent, meetings, office, internet, and consulting. The accountings also improperly include expenses for donations collected before June 1, 2018. I last attempted to contact you on December 3, 2018 .to address these accounting errors. You did not respond to me.
"....untimely and deficient on their face."

An apt description of Druggy himself.

Druggy would tell us the AG's interpretation is all wrong.  He offers absolutely nothing to prove that, so we're left with the choice between taking HIS word for it (And let's face it, you really don't find "truth" and Druggy cohabitating in the same space at the same time, do you?) and that of this lawyer out of the AG's shop.

Gee.  That's a toughie.

The LEAST important element of this is Gellatly's take.  As usual, he is wrong.  Whether he actually believes this garbage or not, we're left with making the choice between a Deputy Attorney General who enforces the law, and an admitted drug user who has a history of breaking the law.

Repeatedly.

Seems to be something of a family trait.

And, as always, in his self-delusion, he did everything right and everyone else is wrong.

In the spirit of his level of confidence of his series of lies/self-serving analysis, I'm sure he would be willing to use the same monied benefactors who paid for his law suit against a PCO to pay his legal fees as he bets the entirety of this horrific result of his typical incompetence on himself.

That's right, Davey: put up or shut up.

You blew it.  Your provide nothing to support your position legally.  And "legally" is all that matters.

You are responsible, for example, for blowing off $1200 of Party money on Jesser's fake Republican outfit.

$1200 that SHOULD have went to towards the fine.  $1200 that puts the lies to everything you wrote.

I hope you, personally, are held in criminal contempt for your attempt to defraud the AG's Office/Court out of this money.

There is no excuse.  There is no lie you can tell.  There is no way for YOU to blame ANYONE else for this horrific outcome.

You and those who enabled you bear the entirety of all of this.  You and they should make this up.  And you and the PCO's who hate anyone to the right of Mao should hold your own fund-raiser and pick up the tab for your insanity.

And all of you need to be held accountable.

The truth will out: The Attorney General drops the hammer on Gellatly... and local GOP.

For the entirety of the time Gellatly was, to our misfortune, the chair of the local GOP; he blamed everyone else for anything that went wrong.

How many times, for example, did he publicly libel the former treasurer of the local GOP, Suzanne Gerhardt, over her handling of the PDC's?

Everything that was wrong, everything the party got hammered for when it came to PDC related issues, was her fault.

According to Gellatly.

In the despicable RINO coup of October '17, that Gellatly lied about her like he lied about everyone else wise enough to oppose him.  His supporters, such as Donnelly, Hart, Gaston, Boger, Ferris, Jesser and many others who lack the sense of a board fence backed this guy no matter WHAT he did.

Use cocaine?  Not his fault; instead it was MY fault for telling the world he was engaging in illegal drug activity WHILE chair of the Clark County GOP.

Multiple counts of theft, multiple DUI's, bench warrants, and even blowing off a judge at the hearing that resulted in a massive fine against the local Party which Gellatly, of course, held himself absolutely blameless for... even though HE was the one who didn't bother to show up.

NONE of that mattered to his supporters.

And now?  Now the AG's Office is going to drop the hammer on the Party that Gellatly left behind in a complete shambles.




So, who does Gellatly blame now?

Can't be Suzanne: she was long gone.  At the end, in the middle of wasting board time censuring me, Karen and Suzanne, he gave Jesser $1200 that was SUPPOSED to go to satisfy the AG judgment to his buddy's fake GOP outfit.

This isn't all the skullduggery he's been involved in, there's more to come.

But the AG's office makes it clear:  over $13,300 that they wasted on things like those idiotic "Be Bold" signs was SUPPOSED to go towards satisfying the judgment of the Court.
The CCRCC did not send any payment to the State on September 1, 2018 or on December 1, 2018. Further, the "accountings" sent in apparent attempt to justify not making these required payments were untimely and deficient on their face. These "accountings" improperly contain deductions for expenses that were not "incurred in collecting donations" made after June 1, 2018. Rather, it appears the CCRCC is deducting unrelated expenses, including, but not limited to for the following activities: GOTV, rent, meetings, office, internet, and consulting. The accountings also improperly include expenses for donations collected before June 1, 2018. I last attempted to contact you on December 3, 2018 .to address these accounting errors. You did not respond to me.
Who was responsible for that?

The board and the RINO PCO's that supported him.  The board that voted for what amounted to these illegal expenditures.

And Gellatly himself.

See, HE knew better.  He knew more than anyone else.  He had deluded himself into believing he was the smartest guy in the room.

Well, looks like this letter put the lie to THAT, doesn't it?
In order to bring it into compliance with the judgment, the CCRCC must immediately provide the State with a corrected accounting through December 1, 2018 and the full payment it owes the State under the terms of the Court's judgment. If this does not occur by January 15, 2019, the State will request the Court find the CCRCC in contempt and impose immediate sanctions for its non-compliance with the Court's June 8, 2018 order. 
Based on the judgment, the accounting should only include the donations received during the applicable time-period and only the expenses directly incurred to raise those donations. Based on the State's own review of the CCRCC's PDC filings, it estimates that the September 1, 2018 payment to the State should have been approximately $8,917.08 and the December 1, 2018 payment to the State should have been approximately $4,439.21.
See, David, there's no one else you can blame now.  This is ALLLLLLLLL you.

YOU left the Party finances in a shambles, Gellatly.  An ongoing train wreck.

And whether you did it deliberately or accidentally, it's a result of YOUR actions.... YOUR decisions.

Now, will Jesser's fake GOP outfit give the money back, money they never should have received?

Fat chance.

And all this time, you kept blaming everyone else when the one responsible was always right there, at the end of the ever-shrinking concentric circles that stopped right in the middle of YOUR chest.

Well, guess what: the blame is now all on you... and those people who slavishly supported the continuing disaster of your tenure.

I'm sure all of them will cheerfully step up and make up for the short-coming YOU are responsible for...and THEY are responsible for because THEY demanded that you continued in office... while THEY insisted on ignoring the damage you were doing and have done... as if it wasn't happening.

And how sad and pathetic is that?

Meanwhile, the new Administration is working hard to put the organization back together again.  With sanity once again prevailing, we will overcome the deliberate effort to destroy the Party organization, the spiteful attempt to bankrupt the local GOP.

Major Egan... why'd you do it? (Originally posted 24 Dec 08)

(NOTE: I've been posting this for 10 years now... even though it doesn't seem to be that long.

It was a part of why I decided when I retired, to stop just talking about veteran issues and to start doing something about it.

This year, I became a veteran service officer for the Washington State Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America.  And for that organization, I also became chair of veteran benefits programs for this state.

If you need help, please contact me, (K.J. Hinton) through the Clark County Veterans Assistance Office at 1305 Columbia Street, Vancouver, WA 98660 or make an appointment by calling 3606937030.

All charitable organizations need actual hands-on help more than they need money.  Giving donations to these groups is important. Actually becoming involved is even more important.

I urge you to find some group that you can help... and get out there and help them.  The pay is practically nothing if you go to work for them.

But the rewards are incalculable.)

I originally posted this a year ago today (24 Dec). And it bears repeating.

This story was in the paper... although, unfortunately, not on the Columbian web.

It is the story of a retired Army Major, one Thomas Egan; a veteran of 2 years on the Korean DMZ, a Master's graduate of the University of Oregon; a retired Oregon Army National Guard officer.

He was found dead, apparently frozen to death, next to a bottle of booze, in Eugene, Oregon within the past few days.

Unfortunately, the story speaks for itself. Sometimes, the desire to destroy one's self can overwhelm all other instincts.

I never knew you, Major, but we served together at the same time. I have no idea what happened to you, but I wish I did... and I wish it could have been fixed.

Tomorrow is Christmas. If you know someone who needs help, take the time and the effort to try and get that help to them. Major Egan had help available, but made a bad choice when it came to using it.

As I look outside at the foot of snow, I ask myself: "how many Major Egans are there?" Is there more that could have been done?

Probably not.

But I wish there had been.

Good bye, Major. From all accounts, you served us honorably and well. I never met you, but I won't forget you.

I could have been you.
Soldier’s death resonates 
Homeless veteran froze to death though services were available
By JACK MO
(Eugene) Register-Guard 
EUGENE, Ore — Thomas Egan was a scholar and a decorated soldier. He was also a homeless alcoholic whose life ended last week when he froze to death in Eugene during an unusually long and harsh cold snap. 
His body was found covered in snow near the corner of West First Avenue and Blair Boulevard, a bottle of liquor by his side. 
News of the demise of the longtime Eugene resident troubled many local veterans — especially those who knew that with some effort and some help, the man they called Major Egan could have had a roof over his head. 
“The whole National Guard community is taking this very hard,” said Bud Dickey, a vocational rehabilitation coordinator with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ community reintegration service center in Eugene. 
“It’s very disturbing for all of us, because Major Egan was retired and could have been drawing his (veterans’) benefits,” Dickey said. “He had options that he did not access.” 
Egan collected monthly Social Security checks, but the amount was a pittance compared with the payments he was entitled to as a retired military veteran. When he turned 60 in July, Egan became eligible to receive $909 each month in National Guard retirement income, Dickey said. 
Egan also could have applied for a separate pension check based on unemployability. “That would have gotten him an apartment if he wanted one,” said Jay Rea, a Springfield resident who served under Egan in the National Guard in the late 1980s. “I shed a tear when I heard he died,” Rea said. “It breaks my heart because he was the friendliest guy, and so smart.” A New York native, Egan joined the Army in 1971 after graduating from Quinnipiac College in Hamden, Conn., with a bachelor’s degree in history. 
He was stationed at the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea for two years, and was reassigned to the Oregon Army National Guard in 1977. 
Earned master’s degree 
Egan earned his master’s degree from the University of Oregon in 1983, and ultimately attained the rank of major with the National Guard. 
He retired honorably in 1991, following a 20-year military career during which he was awarded several service medals and ribbons. 
Dickey said Egan’s desire to drink made him ineligible for VA housing programs that require sober living. 
Egan had declined to enroll in substance abuse treatment programs offered through the veterans agency, Dickey said. 
According to those who knew him, Egan worked sporadically. He did some landscaping, and most years helped deliver telephone books. 
Sometimes, he found an apartment to stay in for a while. At other times, he lived on the streets. In August, Egan spent two weeks at the Eugene Mission — which is less than one block from the spot where a passer-by discovered his body last week. 
Mission officials said Egan never caused any trouble there, and could have stayed any time. Dickey said Egan has no relatives in Oregon, and tracking down members of his extended family on the East Coast has been challenging. 
Dickey, who served five years with Egan in the National Guard, is helping to direct an effort to have Egan interred at the Roseburg National Cemetery. 
“He will be buried as a veteran in a veterans’ cemetery,” Dickey said. “He was a good soldier, and we’re going to get him the burial he’s due.”

Druggy Dave oozes out of the scene.

As regular readers know, The Gellatly Cult suffered a crushing defeat at the local reorganization.  Almost every vestige of the horrific tenure of Druggy Dave has been banished to the dustbin of local politics where it so rightfully belongs... and about 2 years too late.

The Columbian, being the Columbian, was primed for their usual effort.  They neglected to reach out to those brave souls who faced the Cult's onslaught, Mr. Bowerman and Mrs. Pell, instead just allowing Druggy to shoot from the lip.

Now, I get that Druggy is upset with the annihilation/repudiation of the disaster of his horrific term in office.  I get that he's been a political lowlife in every sense of the word.  I get that he's spent far more time trashing his political opponents within the local GOP than he has campaigning against democrats.

Here, he had the opportunity to show some class... some statesmanship and some grace, even though he was humiliated in the outcome at Reorg.  In fact, he was sorta the Marc Boldt (clobbered in the primary with 22% or so of the vote) of the Reorg.

But instead of showing the class of, say, Earl Bowerman, he shot off his mouth stupidly bringing up the characteristic HE lacks the most: integrity.  He also wishes that Bowerman would do that which he never even tried to do: "represent the whole party."

If Earl were to follow Druggies example, he would be filing suit against some PCO who said something about him he didn't like.  You know, like Druggy did when HE sued a PCO?

Bowerman, for his part, showed how capable he is by providing the class Gellatly so obviously lacks:

“I would like to thank the outgoing board for their contributions and service to our party,” Bowerman said in a press release. “I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to working with all of our elected officers, the central committee and volunteers to grow our Party.”

And that's the difference between them, summed up in a single sentence.

As for Herrera's relationship with the local party being "awkward," that's a problem easily solved.

She needs to keep her mouth shut about what she thinks about the President... and she needs to vote like a Republican.

Few within the Party structure will have any problem with her if she can suddenly begin to act like a Republican Member of Congress.

Because here's the reality: as much as the past regime acted like her lackeys, she still lost in Clark County for the first time ever... by around 4400 votes or so, a not inconsequential number.

Clearly, the idiocy of the "Be Bold" signs failed to have the desired impact.

Duh.

No matter.  Druggy is no longer a part of the local GOP and he will certainly not be missed.  Earl Bowerman and Brook Pell are a breath of fresh air.  Compared to the regime of the last two years, they're the adults in a field of children on an out-of-control playground.

The Cult's threats, arrogance and air of superiority will not be missed.  Whatever will they do with all this time on their hands?

Thanks to the local legislators who sold us out on the CRC Scam.

There are few things clearer in local politics than these:

1.  The people of Clark County do not want the I-5 Bridge replaced.
2.  The legislators allegedly representing us don't care what the people want.
3.  The only way Oregon would ever agree to this bridge issue is if these same legislators sold us out on loot rail, which the people of this county also do not want.
4.  Replacing the I-5 Bridge will be the biggest, most colossal waste of money in the history of the Northwestern United States.

Now, it's not surprising the democrats would throw the people of this county under the nearest bus, so to speak.  They want what they want, the people be damned.

And when one reviews the list of alleged "Republicans" who allegedly "represent" us, it's not surprising that they would join with their fellow democrats to sell us out.

The infamous list of those who would cheerfully blow a $100,000,000 per year hole in our local economy on top of the hundreds of millions already wasted on the gas tax/tab fee/property tax increases of Sen. Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers and Sen. Lynda "Property Tax" Wilson, who helped force our property taxes up for no legitimate reason to pay off teacher extortion; Rep. Brandon Vick and now, Rep. Ed Orcutt... have all turned a deaf ear to the people who would be forced to pick up the tab for this perfidy.

There's no excuse for this, of course.  Nor is there a reason: Clark County needs ADDITIONAL bridges over the Columbia River to Multnomah County, preferably from 192nd Ave to Troutdale and preferably one WEST of the I-5 Bridge to Hillsboro.

The latter option would dramatically reduce traffic through the I-5 corridor given the tens of thousands of people who live here but work there in the Hillsboro area.

That's neither here nor there, however: all of the SW Washington legislators involved are willing to bend us over so Portland can start to infest us with their hated crime train so we can bail THEM out of their massive billion dollar plus debt and so they can suck up the limited money available that actually WOULD result in lower congestion, higher freight mobility and increased safety options.

MOST of these legislators rightfully opposed this scheme 5 years ago.  Ann Rivers earned the title "Bridge Killer" when her work resulted in the temporary death of that massive ripoff.

But something has happened to the formerly populist Senator and her politics now are unrecognizable from the variety she practiced when she was first elected.  Her decision to betray us with her gas tax/tab fee vote that cost the taxpayers of Clark County $700 million; her hiring by a democrat campaign firm (Strategies 360) while selling us out on massive property tax increases to pay off the teachers... and now a complete reversal from the stance that earned her the respect and admiration of the people of this community, show that the Rivers we elected initially is no longer with us.

She is "Bridge Killer" no more.

Oregon's governor has made it clear its loot rail or no deal, just like her predecessor (Kitzhaber) and our clueless moron of a governor (Inslee) told us when opposition to the insanity of that system might have made the difference.

Our Republicans clearly don't care and will happily bury us with this rip off.

Why?

Simple: because NONE of the people from SW Washington pushing this idiocy will have to pay for it.

None of them will be required to cough up the estimated $2000 per year in tolls... each... to start with... to go to work every day... a cost they fully intend to ram down our throats.

They won't ask us.  We will have no say.  And none of these people care, since they no longer represent us; instead, representing the downtown Vancouver special interests who clearly own them like many pieces of meat.

Of COURSE they'll ram this down our throats.  Why wouldn't they?  THEY wouldn't have to pay for it: the 70,000 or so commuters are the ones who'll get screwed here.

And like our massive, unneeded, inexplicable property tax increase, it will be our Republican legislators who did it to us.

Thoughts on the Reorg.

It was a near thing.  I floated a test vote at the Reorg to get a preliminary count (Sorry about that, Joe) to see the numbers and they looked bleak... 71 - 51, was it?

When the chair vote took place, I was teetering on the brink.  So much was at stake... I had, in fact, picked up my stuff and was prepared to not only leave... but to resign as a PCO had the vote gone to Jesser and, God Help Us, Gellatly.

There was no way.... NO WAY...  I was going to be forced into a back-bencher, grist for the Gellatly Cult's mill role that a terrified Druggy Dave attempted to jam me into with his idiotic censure motion... which actually, sorta ended up the way I knew it would.

Two more years of incompetence? Lies? Manipulation?  Hammering on PCO's wise enough to pierce the opaque curtain of RINOism with which the Cult reeked?  The stench of, essentially, providing confirmation of everything Druggy Dave had done?  Providing confirmation of his despicable actions, arrogance and incompetence?  The Mattila-style arrogance?

No.

I got up, headed to the back of the room... stood there... heard the numbers... and I was literally stunned.

Not that Crain/Macey was crushed.  Crain is a cancer... who on earth would even remotely want her in charge of even an elevator?

No... her humiliation was expected and not surprising in the least.

I was, however, close to slack-jawed that the Bowerman/Pell ticket was the leading vote-getter by far; 70 votes.

I knew that there was no way all of the votes for Crain would roll over to Jesser.

And, so, like most everyone else, I stood there on pins and needles, waiting... and I was right: 2 additional votes went to the B/P ticket... and it was done.

With the exception of Mattila and Duvall, it was a clean sweep.  As Mattila told the PCO's back in August when he was positively giddy about the outcomes of the PCO poison-pen letter campaign orchestrated by Cancerous Carolyn Crain, (with the help of several RINO former party chairs) the "swamp was drained" at this reorg meeting... just not the way Mattila and the other Cult supporters anticipated.

Mattila, of course, wants to be a Trump delegate to the national convention in the worst way.  And that's how he's been acting out in support of the Gellatly Cult... in the worst way.  Davey let him speak for around 20 minutes (which, because Mattila was a candidate for reelection, should never have happened) and he used it to babble about GOP themes he cheerfully ignored during the past regime.

Ultimately, when it was announced the B/P ticket had won, the looks on the faces of the Cult members was almost worth the insanity they had visited upon the local GOP scene for the past 2 years.

Almost.

Druggy looked like he'd crapped a Volvo.  It was a thing of beauty.

Now he can concentrate more on being God's Gift to women and less on the destruction of this party... that he was wholly incapable of running as his tenure proved.

But I hardly mean to be petty here and I fully recognize that it will take, literally, years for the local GOP to recover from the nightmare of the Cult's "leadership."

At this point, some take the more biblical view that, having ousted the Cult from infesting the local GOP, we should let bygones be bygones and move on.

And in a perfect world with perfect people, I might agree.

But when your positions and politics are built on hatred of your political opponents, as the Cult's philosophies actually are, that is simply not an option.

Their singular goal is the destruction of the GOP as we know it.  Druggy Dave has some incredibly bizarre ideas about what the State Party can do or would do even if they could.  It gives them comfort to actually believe the state party would in any way interfere with this county's party organization.

Obviously, the irony of that belief cannot be overstated given the insanity of Druggy's last two years of running this party into the ground.

Meanwhile, sanity has been restored.  Those who've lost their grip on power are rabid in their hatred of those of us who worked so hard to remove them.  They had it allllll planned out.

One of the more butthurt proclaimed he couldn't wait to read what *I* had to say about all this.  Well, far be it from me to disappoint... and many thanks to Lew Waters for shining the light on their RINO hatred... not just his, but the hatred of those tossed on garbage heap of local politics was nicely provided by that self-same Waters, who simply cannot help himself when it comes to proving his irrelevancy.

Thanks, Lew! And thanks to all those morons who were stupid enough to comment on your blithering idiocy, outing themselves once again for what and who they really are.

So, no.  No forgiveness.  No bygones. 

Eternal vigilance against those and those like them is the price we must pay.  In the next PCO elections, we must counter their hate letters as a part of a campaign to keep them out.  We must engage these thugs the same way they influenced the last PCO election.  We must do more to identify PCO's sympathetic to the cult and hammer them.

The grass roots rightfully control these outcomes.  And the contrast between the past soviet-style regime and the one we have now.  We need to hold candidates and incumbents accountable for their actions.  If they lie, they must be held accountable.  If we fail to hold them accountable, how does that make us any better than the scum we just got rid of?

The run up to 2020 is going to be interesting to say the least.

And I wish we did not have to be distracted by these lowlifes who, in reality, will work harder against the local GOP than any democrat who ever lived.

The hatred of the G-Cult continues.

Folks, nothing is over.  The Gellatly Cult's destruction was only temporary at the reorganization.

They are out there.  They haven't gone anywhere.

They're ignorant, which is to be expected.  Neither Druggy Dave nor Lew Waters know as much about State Party and County Party relations as they do re-targeting nuclear missiles... and all of these people are dead wrong about what the state CAN do and, of course, what they will do.

They were so sure in their arrogance that their poison pen PCO letters saved the day.  But it's like most everything else Druggy was involved in: they had no idea what they were doing; they had no clue on how to count votes, they were a disorganized rabble while they were running the show and they remain the same right now.

What they wanted while they were in charge was for the opposition to either be assimilated... or obliterated (as illustrated by Gellatly's horrific lawsuit)  And that certainly hasn't changed.

But that's not really the point.  The cancer is still alive and a part of the local GOP.  The bylaws which discuss removing members from meetings who can't behave must be ruthlessly enforced.

Expect Crain and Marcy and their ilk to exhibit diarrhea of the mouth both in and out of meetings.

Yes, they were crushed.

But as you can see, they're out there lurking.  Their hatred grows.  There is no lie they won't speak or write, no exaggeration, no end they will not attempt to get their power back.

They, of course, know everything.  Anyone opposed to their incompetence, their arrogance and their hatred knows nothing.

That's why they were so successful at the reorg, right?

But the idea that we should forgive and forget is simply impossible.  Eternal vigilance is required, since these clowns have done such a great job tipping their hands.

Thankfully, the psychopathic liar is no more.

A sense of relief pervades that the whack-job can do no more damage.

It's sad, really.

Our resident drug-using thief is reduced to this.

One way to judge the veracity of this liar's statements is to ask yourself: what was the outcome of his bogus allegations?

Was anyone he named arrested?  Was any action taken at all?  Was his bogus effort to "trespass" us upheld?

No, No and No.

This had nothing to do with anything except his attempt to engage in revenge against those of us opposed to this overgrown adolescent who saw the local GOP as his own personal fiefdom.

He actually tried to destroy the life of a PCO who disagreed with his drug-addled administration of the party which has been a proven disaster... by suing him into severe financial distress.  And how did that end up?

Gellatly needs help.  Badly.  He's been an embarrassment to us all, and had his background and drug use been known before he got the gig as GOP Chair, he never would have been elected.

Arrested for theft, multiple DUI's, bench warrants for failure to appear and felony drug use.  Does anyone reading this HONESTLY believe he'd have gotten this job?

Of course not.

You know it, I know it and he knows it.

I could go on and on and on about this guy and frequently have.  But let me leave you with his own words... so you can use them to judge him yourself.

About a month ago, Druggy sent out an email that most of you received.

Included in his self-flagellation, was this little tid-bit.  Remember?
(b) Please keep in mind, all those who voluteer[sic] to give up their time to serve should be appreciated greatly by all of our members and any negative compaigning[sic] against our own members rather than qualifying their own candidacy shows a serious lack of qualification in itself. 
Those who can run the most positive campaign will also be the best people to make our party positive for all of our members. Please keep communications positive and work together to elect the best possible team to lead us forward and continue the amazing work we have accomplished this past year together.
Those words, rife with the typical Druggy Dave misspellings, came from Gellatly himself.

Now, with about a day and a half until reorg, he sends out this garbage... under the lie of and including nothing related to the subject line... "documentation" that no one "requested."

Odd.  He seems to have completely forgotten what he was preaching a few short weeks ago.  Why might that be?

There you have it.

The choice is up to you.  An extension of this sort of psychotic behavior... or a clean slate to begin the process of rebuilding and healing the party that Gellatly has worked so hard to destroy.

Rewarding his enablers who stood by time after time and allowed his reign of terror to go on, instead of holding him accountable and doing what should have been done months ago.,, or bringing in a new vision, a new plan to repair the damage he caused.

In the end, it’s your call.  Remember this as you mark your ballots.

Why Jesser and Gellatly are unacceptable for running the local party.

Anyone watching has, by now, determined that the local GOP has been a slow-motion train wreck since anyone named Gellatly has been on the scene.  Those who enabled that, those who defended that, those who seem unable to grasp that "leadership" provided this "leadership" have no more business running a party than they do running an elevator.

Jesser, for her part, is best known for among other things, quiting the Republican Women and then, in the tradition of a Gellatly enabler, starting up some other group... a group that received all of Gellatly's attention and several hundred of our dollars to the exclusion of the group that Jesser quit instead of finishing out her term.

And that is hardly the variety of "unifier" we need.

Her lapses in integrity include providing a statement to the Clark County Sherrif's office where she supported Gellatly's bizarre contention that he, Gellatly, was subjected to an attempted kidnapping at an eBoard meeting... as she claimed her terror of weapons... and then, a brief few days latter went out to the range to fire said weapons.

Image result for gabrielle Giffords holding assault rifleThink of that democrat, Gabrielle Giffords, who has used her own situation to become a clueless antigun nut... and all of those pictures of her firing an "assault weapon" before that situation happened...

And Brian Gellatly?

Jesser starts off with the gross exaggeration that Gellatly has a "leadership role" in the party which is utter nonsense.  He, apparently, is the guy that opens and closes the party office.

Big whoop.  Think of who he replaced.

But also, view this as the distorted view and efforts of communication we'll be liable to get every day from Jesser in the unfortunate event of her election.

Gellatly was outed as ADMITTING to felony drug use at a minimum and what did either of these two do to hold him accountable?

Nothing.

They did, however, support his bizarre effort effort to "trespass" his political opponents... as if such a thing was legal, ethical or moral.

They did nothing to force Gellatly to stop his divisive and moronic lawsuit against a PCO, a suit that has been long-rumored to have been paid for by someone NOT named David Gellatly in a misguided, abortive effort to shut up opposition to his continued tenure.

How'd that work out for him?

And I look at those endorsing this sickening effort to continue the disastrous Gellatly tenure beyond his departure... the same group of enablers who falsely try and claim they're "conservatives" when in fact their reactions to the various aspects of the disaster of Gellatly's continued embarrassing tenure was not to hold him accountable, but instead, to vilify those opposed to his horrific, narcissistic tenure while they DEFEND the actions of this embarrassment to GOP politics...a man who would have been forced out of office in ANY other political party organization using the letters "GOP"... and who, had they vetted him, never would have been allowed to have the job in the first place.

I look at the massive puff-piece Jesser is shoving around at there, and I ask myself: What leadership experience is listed there?

Other than the obvious lies ("Solid conservative?"  It never ceases to amaze how those most obviously RINO refuse to acknowledge that fact; instead, falsely claiming to be "conservative.") WHAT "leadership?"  What has she done except to enable perhaps THE worst chair this party has ever known?

There may be many names for that insanity, but "leadership" is not among them.

For example, look at the list of those endorsing these two.

Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers, responsible for the biggest property tax increases we've ever seen imposed by the state, hired by a democrat campaign firm, Strategies 360, while a "REPUBLICAN" senator "negotiating" with the WEA to ram those massive property tax increases down our throats, and then lying about how our taxes were actually going to go DOWN as a result of her efforts.  Not to mention her betrayal of her district and this County by running on a platform of opposing gas tax and tab fee increases... only to vote for them in a successful effort to jack up our price at the pump by 12 cents per gallon and almost double our tab fees.

And who can forget Rivers' decision to blame Peter VanNortwick as a result of HER efforts to cause our property taxes to explode?

Lynda "Property Tax" Wilson, who helped Rivers ram those increases down our throats and ALSO stood with Rivers as they both lied to local PCO's as explained here over this same issue, claiming that "I just want you to know that every one in Clark County will be receiving a property tax that's going down."

How'd that work out for us?

Those endorsing Jesser have done more actual, measurable damage to this party and this county than anyone.  And there are those who want to continue that level of incompetence for another 2 years?

No.

Those endorsing Jesser stand as testimony of supporting everything wrong with the past two years.  A tenure of lies, deceit, self-aggrandizement, and the view of an out of touch "leadership" that this organization is their own, personal, fiefdom.

That's not how this works.

That's not how any of this works.

If two more years of a proven record of division, of infighting, of lies and incompetence are what you want, then by all means: stick with the RINO establishment of do-nothing people who blame everyone and everything else for the issues confronting the party now... as if THEY weren't running it when it happened.

Jesser offers up no special talents or history to make her worthy of the position of party chair.  She has, sadly, provided a history to show just the opposite.

If the "buck" doesn't stop with those who were in the "leadership" of the party during Gellatly's horrific tenure, then where DOES it stop?  And the insanity definition applies:  Electing those two for these positions as well as Mattila for his own personal crusade to be a Trump delegate... again... while expecting a different outcome?

That would simply be insane.
