In a move I find telling, the Republican National Senate Committee fired their fundraising director today.
For, in their words, “poor performance”. We shall see. From The Daily Caller.com.
NRSC getting rid of its finance director
The National Republican Senatorial Committee is replacing its finance director due to disappointing fundraising numbers, The Daily Caller confirmed on Wednesday.
Two sources told TheDC on Wednesday that the committee — which is dedicated to electing and re-electing Republican senators — has removed finance director Shelly Carson from the top fundraising position.
The Washington Examiner — which first broke the news – reported that Carson will continue to work as a consultant for the committee.
“Shelly is a valuable member of our team whose strength and skill is working directly with donors and will focus directly on fundraising efforts instead of day-to-day operations,” NRSC spokesperson Brad Dayspring told the Examiner.
The NRSC has raised about $20.3 million this year, in comparison to the $31 million raised by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
According to her biography, Carson is a former aide to former Sen. Jim DeMint’s 2004 Senate campaign and Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign.
While the erstwhile NRSC can hire and fire who they please, it is my take the Perpetually Stupid Party has let the WRONG person go here. This next line is quite confusing. “Shelly is a valuable member of our team whose strength and skill is working directly with donors and will focus directly on fundraising efforts instead of day-to-day operations,” NRSC spokesperson Brad Dayspring told the Examiner. You relieve her of her duties as director, citing “poor performance”, then send her out to beg ? Sounds abusive to me. Either she can do the job, or not. Very telling in the upper echelon of the party apparatus.
To blame this woman for the downturn in donations simply is ignoring the REAL problem with the GOP, in ANY form today.
In my humble opinion, the REAL reason for the downturn is LOOK who the damned party is BACKING. McCain ? A damned democrat in elephant’s clothing. Graham ? Just as bad. Go on down the list, there are PLENTY of clowns who should be booted from the party for the sin of NOT STANDING UP FOR THE PRINCIPALS we hold dear.
The next time you get that call from the NRSC, the RNC, the RNCC, whatever, tell THEM when THESE are gone, you’ll THINK about MAYBE donating something. NOT UNTIL.
