A few days ago we posted about the Illinois GOP chair resigning, citing support for marriage equality as a reason. That Illinois GOP chairman was Pat Brady, who left partly because he’d been butting heads with several members of the state GOP over his support for marriage equality, and also because his wife has cancer.
That left an opening that would provide an opportunity for the Republican Party to demonstrate that they’re Very Serious about their Very Serious Outreach Effort (scroll), right?
Via the Chicago Sun Times‘s piece titled, “Ron Gidwitz blows up, blasts GOP conservative bloc for ‘destroying any chance … party has in 2014′”:
Brady had called on female leadership to revive embattled Illinois Republicans, but so far just one woman made the cut of contenders lining up to take the helm.
Someone who did make the list was Tea Party ex-Congressman Joe Walsh [...]
The list may grow before Friday’s deadline… 30 people were nominated and the nominations included other women — but numerous nominees said they were not interested.
Yes, “Tell your employees to vote Republican or they could be out of a job“ Deadbeat Dad, hostile, lowlife, bullying loudmouth who thought nothing of insulting veteran Duckworth with his now infamous, “Female, wounded veteran … ehhh” remarks. The same one who said, “Go get a job. Go get a job Sandra Fluke.” Joe Walsh. That Joe Walsh.
