Every once in awhile, you hear about a really good lawsuit. This is one of those. Part of the story is copied below, and the entire story is linked through the headline.

Republican donor from Virginia Beach sues GOP, accusing the party of fraud over failed Obamacare repeal

A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act he’s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering.

Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren’t going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

The GOP “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats,” the suit said. Racketeering, perhaps better known for use in prosecuting organized crime, involves a pattern of illegal behavior by a specific group.

The lawsuit lists as defendants the Republican National Committee and Virginia’s two national GOP committee members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, as well as the Republican Party of Virginia and state party Chairman John Whitbeck. (read the rest here)

  1. And those are the gravest charges that they can come up with?

    An elected official that swears an oath to uphold the Constitution, then he votes for a law that forces you to buy a product that his buddies are selling. Can anyone show me where the states have delegated to the psychopaths in DC the power to force us to buy anything?

    This does not border on treason, IMHO this is treason. Perhaps if we took adherence to the Constitution seriously, and hung a few of the criminal political class they would start paying attention. Perhaps not….. that would be their folly and our gain.
