Sanctioning Commissioner Boldt Was the Right Thing for the Clark County GOP To Do

by lewwaters

It was just days ago that the Columbian pretended as if they just now discovered that the Clark County GOP had sanctioned one of their own for his frequent strays from conservatism and selling out our conservative interests to side with liberal Democrats, going against his campaign promises of supporting conservative values. In a nutshell, he frequently voted against the best interests of the citizens in order to further the liberal Democrat agenda.

I have been one of the few willing to stand up for the Clark County GOP, even as party leaders now cower and seem prepared to throw open the doors and re-embrace Marc Boldt, to be decided this Tuesday I am told. Republicans, spineless as they now are, have no need to appease liberal Democrats or suck up to the Columbian, who cannot find a good word to say about them, except for those RINO’s that are more liberal than conservative, such as the current 3rd Congressional District Representative.

In my expressions of defense of the GOP I have made several references to a scathing post against Marc Boldt and why he deserved to be sanctioned that I wrote back in November 2011, but never posted, due to his one time vote against the baseball stadium admissions tax.

Once again, The Columbian’s Bias is on Full Display

by lewwaters

Just when I think the Columbian and Stephanie Rice are becoming more the centrist, objective newspaper the region deserves, they throw out another hatchet job against the Republicans.

I am amazed that nearly 4 months after Clark County Commissioner Marc Boldt was ‘sanctioned’ by the GOP Executive board, over his abandoning the party platform, endorsing Democrats over Republicans an issuing a misleading robocall on C-Tran’s Proposition 1 leading up to last November’s election, the Columbian acts surprised with their hatchet job, Why was Boldt sanctioned by GOP?

The fallacy of this smear is in the fact that the Columbian has admitted to viewing my blog frequently and this sanction was prominently mentioned in my November 29, 2011 post Admissions Tax Defeated, Proposal Does Not Even Receive a Vote.

I don’t for a minute believe I had knowledge of this and the Columbian did not. Not since I first learned of it on facebook and spoke with GOP Chair Brandon Vick. He had intended it be kept private, but one of the board members leaked it out.

I had written a scathing post that I decided not to post when Boldt did not second Commissioner Steve Stuart’s motion for the admission tax, in hopes that Marc was returning to his roots claimed of being a conservative.
