I can't get enough of Democrat Ray Buckley, Kathy Sullivan, and even Governor Lynch unloading two barrels of hypocrisy on the issue of out of state money or the excessive influence of PACs on local politics. Sitting atop their mountains of out of state money they are forever demagoging the issue. So I am waiting patiently for them to denounce the newly elected Republican House Rep from Rockingham county, Kevin Janvrin, who has finance reports that just scream "Shill to extremist, outside influence."
Here are a few examples.
CWA District One - Union PAC based in New York City
IAFF -Union PAC - NY (DC) ( $1000.00 6/2011)
IAFF - Union PAC - NY (DC) ($1,000.00 7/2011)
Uniformed Professional FF - Union PAC - Connecticut
Andover FF - Union PAC - Andover Massachusetts
We also have contributions from the PROF FF MASS, TENN Prof FF, Prof FF Vermont, and the IUPAT, all out of state Union PAC money.
All totaled the 'Republican' Janvrin, has received almost $5,000.00 in donations from hostile out of state unions, to both win the primary, and the general election, for one New Hampshire House seat.
Then we have the local union PAC's, NH SEA; NH Educators; MA & NNE Laborers; Nashua FF; MPFFA, IBEW, SMWIA, Plumbers and Steam Fitters, IRON Workers Union, and Granite State Teamsters, all union PAC's, donating in total, over $2500.00 to the 'Republican' Janvrin.
David Lang the head of the PFFNH has also donated personally to Janvrin and Janvrin has even paid the PFFNH, from his campaign, for yard signs.
So a laundry list of out of state Union PACs, hostile to the Republican party platform, and who historically donate exclusively to democrats and left wing causes, have had a disproportional impact on an in-state election. As a special interest group, union donations from all sources account for over $7500.00 dollars to this 'Republican' candidate. In fact almost all of his donations are from democrat run unions, and democrat union supporters, (close to 90% of all donations), with only a few exceptions, like former state senator Bob Clegg, and the Rockingham County GOP committee.
Kevin Janvrin was elected by union money and union power, to vote the union agenda.
Now, I get that the GOP state party and even elected GOP officials, have to be welcoming and cordial. That's just part of the PR presence and should not necessarily be used as a measure of their 'Republican cred.' But Janvrin is a Hostile Democrat/Union plant, and you'd have to be incredibly naive to think that he is not expected to vote the union democrat agenda from his "Republican" House seat. So for those of you thinking about calling me divisive, I couldn't break the 11th commandment if I tried because this guy is not a Republican.
And in case you had not noticed, the silence from the NHDP only confirms this. The unbalanced, corrupting influence of out of state money and special interest donors, on a local election, is suddenly inconsequential when it is democrats donors and outside union influence that helped get Janvrin elected. He is one of them. How could they possibly object to how he attained his office?
