Tea Partier Jim LeMunyon Called Out on Money from Extremist Group, Promptly Returns It


    Well, that didn’t take long. Just a day after Democratic House of Delegates nominee Eric Clingan (67th district) called out Tea Partier Jim LeMunyon (at an Arab-American dinner, which LeMunyon skipped, but at which 10th CD Republican Chair Howie Lind appeared) for his extremist views and ties, including to the far-far-right-wing “Middle Resolution PAC” (see here for a lot more on this subject), guess what happened? That’s right, Tea Partier LeMunyon returned $50,000 he’d received from the “Middle Resolution PAC.” What’s that all about? Coincidence or cause-and-effect? I encourage reporters to ask LeMunyon and see what he has to say. While they’re at it, they also might want to ask why LeMunyon’s tied up with a group that’s closely linked to the hard-right-wing ALEC (see ALEC Exposed: A Nationwide Blueprint for the Rightwing Takeover), and why he’s pushing one of their top priorities, the dangerous “REPEAL” amendment. It should be fascinating to hear his answers…
