I am writing you today to thank for for all the hard work you have put in on behalf of the Rand Paul for U.S. Senate campaign in 2009. As 2009 comes to a close, I want to personally thank you for all the work you do for the cause of liberty!
In light of some recent unfortunate developments, I regret to inform you that I have officially resigned today from the Rand Paul for U.S. Senate campaign. I will be issuing a public statement soon, and I will be happy to send it to you at your request.
It is with a heavy heart that I have made this decision. I will miss your company and your passion for the cause of liberty, but I eagerly look forward to working with you again in the ongoing fight to save our nation. Whatever your feelings, don’t ever quit the fight. Your efforts will always be needed as we all work to save our nation and the Constitution.
Good luck in the New Year, and thank you for all of the fond memories we have shared along the campaign trail. If you ever need anything or if you would like to stay in touch, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
What happened in Liberty Land, kids?
FYI – that screaming lady from the video earlier? That was her. She was Rand’s replacement spokesperson. Here she is again: Looks like Rand Paul has a real problem with hiring people who embarrassing the living shit out of him, like Mr. Death Metal and Ms. Screaming Lady.
I stand corrected. That’s not her in the video. The official with the Paul Campaign lied to me yet again.
So what REALLY happened, folks? Why’d Rand lose yet another spokescritter?
UPDATE – Statement from Christi
Lexington, Ky.– Effective at 1 p.m. today, I have resigned from the Rand Paul for U.S. Senate Campaign. Reflecting on previous staff changes and how they were handled, I wish to speak for myself on my own behalf. I am making my intentions clear in my own words.
I came to work for Rand first as a grassroots volunteer, then as a full-time staffer. Initially, I was attracted to his conservative message of reforming the Republican Party. This powerful message is held dear by the growing majority of mainstream Kentuckians. This message is what attracted me to support Rand, after I had originally pledged my support to Secretary Grayson.
I have decided, after much thoughtful deliberation, to leave the GOP after 15 years of activism and campaign involvement at all levels. My political career began as a highschool student, where I served as the state chair of the Teenage Republicans. Since then, I have consistently continued my involvement by working both as a volunteer and as staff in Republican organizations and campaigns. This step, therefore, is not taken lightly, but I deem it morally necessary.
After all, it was Rand Paul who caused me to “see the light” about Mitch McConnell and the GOP establishment, both of whom Rand has now forbidden campaign members and grassroots supporters to attack. Rand now says he can’t win by attacking McConnell. Rand has changed his message of reform, so I cannot be further involved in this effort with a clear conscience. If we are not working to reform the GOP, we are only helping the establishment. On a personal note, however, Rand and I have parted company on friendly terms.
I have re-registered as a Libertarian, and I look forward to helping to grow the Libertarian Party of Kentucky into the viable third-party alternative it can be. I welcome you to join me in this worthwhile endeavor for liberty and our Constitution. Please visit www.lpky.org for more information about the Libertarian Party of Kentucky.
Oh, look at this:
Losing two staffers in the early stages of a campaign is not unusual or a sign of internal problems, Adams said.
HA! It’s not that they left the campaign – it’s the circumstances under which they left. Hightower, after racist crap was uncovered. And Gillespie, after she got fed up with Rand’s flip-flopping and McConnell butt kissing.
