Soros “Dump West” SuperPac: Going Under the Radar to Defeat Allen West

Florida blog, The Shark Tank, is reporting a “confidential memorandum” announcing an organized, George Soros attack on Congressman Allen West’s re-election in the newly re-organized Florida 18th District. Currently, West represents District 22 and currently, I don’t think Florida has finalized all of their redistricting. Soros is spending $5 Million to get rid of an American hero, Colonel and Congressman Allen West.

The Shark Tank allegedly has the memorandum and has posted it. The DumpWest SuperPac is probably filing this week, maybe today.

The letter is vile and accusatory. The agenda is clear. It describes the newly redrawn District 18 this way:

Republicans have a slight registration advantage in what is historically a swing district. Obama carried the district as currently composed by three points in the 2008 presidential election, while Rick Scott [Republican] won the district by two points in the 2010 gubernatorial race…

We intend to implement an under-the-radar voter contact plan that identifies and persuades the Democratic base, undecided voters, independents, and soft unfavorables to vote against Allen West. Additionally, we expect republican women between the ages of 18 and 45 will be a target. We will use all channels (mail, telephones, new media and social media) to communicate with voters. Wherever possible, we will look to collect email addresses and cell phone opt-ins in order to have a dialogue with as many voters as possible.

Many voter demographics are there, along with the plan in three pages.

More from Shark Tank:

Top national Democratic operative Charles Halloran has been retained by a new George Soros-backed super-PAC to target Congressman Allen West for defeat this November. Halloran is a former aide to President Bill Clinton and is one of the most respected voter targeting/turn out experts in the Democratic Party. Halloran ran the successful campaign of Democrat Tim Mahoney that won the seat of former Republican Congressman Mark Foley…

According to sources Halloran has brought in “American Directions” to manage the Super-PAC’s effort for internet based, low-dollar fundraising, polling and voter contact. “American Directions” is among the heavy weight firms in Washington DC and is considered on the on the cutting edge of the most sophisticated technology for voter contact through text messaging and email as well as sophisticated voter mailings…

Conservative activists think that exposure of the Soros backed anti-West Super PAC will only spur pro-West Super-PAC activities. “We need to spend dollar for dollar with the liberals to re-elect Allen,” said Von Tausch.

Also a matter of speculation is the involvement in these efforts of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is facing a tough re-election race from Republican candidate Karen Harrington.

One Pingback/Trackback

  • Unless West apologizes for his fear mongering of telling us that the United States House of Representatives has 78 to 81 “card-carrying Marxists or international Socialists”, he really shouldn’t be serving in the house.

    It appears that the latest and greatest wisdom coming from the radical right is that you must adhere to every aspect of conservative thinking, kowtow to an anti-democrat mindset, and never ever agree with anything the this President of the United States says or does, least you be Marxists, Communists, Socialists, etc. And that’s a rather disturbing and prejudiced thought process.

    • Ronald J. Ward, he didn’t say the words “card-carrying Marxists or international Socialists.” Those words were used in a question to him, which he answered: “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party.”

      He was probably referring to the Democrat Socialists of America who published a list with 70 members of Congress who are also members of the DSA. Read that story here.

      A Townhall column has quotes that addresses this:

      “The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom,” Melvin said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

      Then there’s Hansen Clarke and Danny Davis

      It’s the DSA’s that do not belong in Congress. Allen West owes no apology.

      I understand you are not familiar with it, but he spoke the TRUTH.
      I feel sorry for you, your brain is diseased. Oh wait, I DON’T feel sorry for you, you and your ilk are destroying this country.
      Don’t you understand that when you and your ilk have us beaten down into a third world cesspool, that YOU will be in that cesspool also?

    Top five greatest Americans of all time. Easy to see why Soros and Co.* hate him.


  • Leo

    Guy running against West is a 28-year old kid who has done nothing in his life except wind up the son of a really rich guy. He’s a joke. All the money in the world, even mixed with the Democrats’ existential panic to ruin a black Republican, can’t fix that.

    • Leo, thank you for this information. I always appreciate insight into Republican opponents, including poor Republican candidates. I’m working on Senate races now.

    Why is George Soros a racist?

    • elite, that word hasn’t been used here.
