RPV Has A Mess To Clean Up

By Greg L | 15 April 2014 | RPV, Virginia Politics | 15 Comments

The truth (is now) out there.  Contrary to his recent claims to the contrary, Shaun Kenny is actually on the Eric Cantor and Barbara Comstock payroll, and doubtless we will discover in short order what exactly his financial relationships with Ed Gillespie is as well.  Secrets don’t last very long in politics, and lies have a nasty habit of being discovered.  The only uncertainty is when that happens, not if.

RPV can’t continue to lurch right from one crisis involving their new Executive Director to another.  It needs to fix this, as the story of the week, every week, shouldn’t be about the degree of truthiness exhibited by the guy running day-to-day operations at the Obenshain Building and his judgment, or lack thereof.  There are important battles going on elsewhere at this minute.  The Kenny situation is not helping Republicans win any of them.

We have an Executive Director who is actively trying to chase Republicans away from RPV because they don’t agree with his stand on granting amnesty to illegal aliens.  He’s been hiding unethical financial relationships with political figures and is now in a position of power that he can use to influence the outcome of nominating contests involving his political clients.  His business is heavily engaged in publishing blog posts on various Virginia blogs attacking the opponents of their clients, often under pseudonyms.  Now, we see evidence that Kenny has consistently been untruthful about these relationships.  Even without the frequent scandal cycle going on, these issues should be deeply concerning to anyone interested in an effective RPV that is going to be fair and honest in the process of selecting candidates for election and organizing support for them.  RPV simply is not a trustworthy entity at this point, and that cannot be allowed to continue.

The Republican State Central Committee has a difficult task ahead of them.  It is never fun or easy to clean up a mess like this, but it needs to be done, and done quickly.

UPDATE: Mark Levin responds “Eric Cantor is up to no good, again” while the reaction from the blogosphere has been swift.  Here’s a sampling:

Virginia Right: Shaun Kenney and Bearing Drift Drop Anchor in Eric Cantor’s Treasure Chest
Virginia Right: Dear Pat Mullins: Shaun Kenney MUST RESIGN From RPV or the Conventions and Primaries are TAINTED
Firewall NOVA: Amid Controversies, Virginia Republicans Seek Light At End Of Tunnel
The Bull Elephant: Is there a conflict of interest between Eric Cantor and the RPV Executive Director?

    Oh boy, where to start with this pile of lies and half-truths?

    1) Kenney isn’t on the Cantor payroll, he works under the title of K6 Consulting, which has many consultants, one of which (not Kenney) was hired by Cantor. You, and the blog post you linked to, are wrong or lying.

    2) Obviously secrets don’t last long, because everyone is familiar with the requirement to disclose who candidates pay, which makes it even more unlikely that Kenney would get paid by Cantor, then deny it, knowing that this disclosure was upcoming.

    3) RPV has not undergone any crises. You being made about something and raising a stink on your little blog does not count as a crisis.

    4) We have an Executive Director who *sat down and talked to* a group not rabidly opposed to illegal immigration. Without rehashing the debate, any decision by people to be “chased away” from the GOP for somebody having a simple discussion is a reflection on those people, not on Kenney.

    5) He has not hidden any financial relationships with anybody. Ironically, you, Greg, are the only blogger who has blogged about their clients without disclosing it. That you insist on accusing others of your crime remains hilarious.

    6) The Executive Director is NOT in a position to have any influence on the outcome of the 7th District primary. I don’t know what you think the ED does, but it’s probably wrong.

    7) The SCC will probably not act on this, nor on any of your other invented claims, and in about two months (after Cantor, Comstock, and Gillespie have all won), this will all be forgotten about.

    And for the record (since your record was wrong last time–and never corrected): I am not a Bearing Drift contributor, I am not paid by any campaign, and I do not work at a political consulting firm.

    Man, this Spiker guy is a hoot. Reminds me of Baghdad Bob. Even complains that someone found him listed as a BD contributor on the about page of that blog and had the stones to actually ID him as a BD contributor.

    1) At least I post under my real name, unlike you.

    2) Because I post under my real name, you can quickly and easily verify that the contributor listed on BD’s about page is my brother, D.J., and not me.

    I understand why people lie in order to make their case–because reality doesn’t support their position otherwise. I don’t understand why people make up such easy-to-disprove lies.

    I love it when a paid blogger tries to attack bloggers who work for candidates.

    Please keep up with this falsehood that I’m betting paid by people to blog. If you repeat it enough someday, somebody might actually think it’s true and cut me a check. That could come in handy on tax day.

    I do wish you would show the same restraint in your own accusations

    Greg is correct; he is not a paid blogger. However, he does post about his clients who pay him for other services.

    Greg as never hidden who he works for, or denied it, or called others liars who said he worked for a politician. THAT’s the difference between Greg and your buddies at Bearing Drift.

    Stephen, Speaking of lies easy to disprove, you are absolutely wrong about Shaun’s role at K6. He doesn’t “work under the heading” of anything. He and his brother Jason OWN K6. OF COURSE he benefits from lucrative contracts with Cantor and Comstock. I know you think we are stupid, but this time its YOU who needs to get your facts straight. Not like I am telling you anything you didn’t already know. You, knowing the truth the whole time, only characterized it as some abstract affiliation to cover for Shaun. THAT, my friend is lying, as you accuse Greg of.

    This pales in comparison to the millions of dollars paid out to the “price gouging” Creative Direct (Ray Allen and Ron Butler) over the years (since 1999) ALL on a “no bid” basis. They’ve ALWAYS had an inside person at RPV accepting and paying their invoices unconditionally and any move to blow the whistle on them is met with intimidation and threats of retribution of some sort.

    RPV needs to get their poop in a group, or this state is turning blue. Quickly

    I didn’t realize that the Republican voters in the 7th and 10th CDs were so simpleminded as to have the executive director of RPV tell them what to do.

    Good to know …

    Everyone should read the Breitbart article. I love the part where Shaun says his job is to be a diplomat. He blew that all to hell on his second day in office when he insulted most of the base who support the laws of this country and do not support open borders.

    Great work Greg. These dopes gave us terry mc auliffe. Today terry lowered the waiting times for felons to get their voting privileges back.
    Warner has been awful for the last 6 years (to us not harry and barry). Lets hope we don’t get him for another 6. What does kaine do, sit around all day waiting for harry or barry to call him? Is he still in the senate? You never hear a peep from him.
