Massachusetts Republican Assembly Did not attack Baker and Barbour

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

Fri May 07, 2010 at 19:04:47 PM EDT

Jordan Gehrke, the political director of the Tim Cahill for Governor Campaign just tweeted the following two tweets:

#    Whoa, another one! Washington Post: "Massachusetts conservatives versus the RGA" #mapoli #magov     26 minutes ago  via TweetDeck

# American Spectator: "MA Republicans to RGA: Get out." #mapoli #magov 28 minutes ago via TweetDeck

Both articles state that the Massachusetts Republican Assembly blasted Charlie Baker and Haley Barbour for supporting him.  There's one problem.  They did no such thing.  Alan Gillis a former Chair of the organization is the one that released a press release saying negative things about both Baker and Barbour.   In coversations with three members of the Massachusetts Republican Assembly board I was told that no vote was taken and no press release was authorized.

Sandi Martinez the current President of the organization told Red Mass Group that, "Alan Gillis was not authorized to issue a press release on behalf of the organization, nor is he a current board member.   The Assembly has not made the statements that he ascribes to us."

The press release that started the whole story can be found here.  A screen grab of how the release looked at 7:12 PM on May 7 can be found below.

Anyone else get the feeling the RGA is freaking out? (5.00 / 1)
Can you blame them though?  Once their donors watch that video their fundraising is going to dry up.

"That it ceased to exist, I'll grant you, but whether or not it failed cannot be definitively said." - Metropolitan (1990)

If If Charlie Baker is trying to convince people he is a social liberal.... (5.00 / 1)
....consider me convinced.  What can I say?  I trust and believe him.

I wonder if "the clipper" bothered to try and reach Mr. Gillis for comment?

Al Gillis (0.00 / 0)
...hmmm   I see Charlie Baker has spent money here for the maintenance of this website -  now, there's a good reason to trash Mr. Gillis!

I spoke to Al Gillis.... (0.00 / 0)
...and he did not intend to speak for the MRA, and got ahead of himself.

As a member of the MRA board, I'll let our President, Sandi Martinez quote, speak for itself.

Also, that's a paid Baker ad.  You want to buy an ad, I'm sure Rob would welcome the income to help the site.

Follow me on Twitter?  Sure, why not.

Last I checked... (0.00 / 0)
...I was still a dues paying member of the MRA (and for several years, although never a board member) and well, we all know I'm a proud Baker supporter.  :)

Tisei totally dismissed my mother's concerns about a guy in a dress using the stall next to her to take a leak. He said; "well they have to go somewhere". Thanks Richie, that makes women Second Class Citizens in the ladies room because YOU want to legislate that society must participate in a delusion.
There was a movie called They Might Be Giants. In it, George C. Scott "lived" as Sherlock Holmes. The title comes from the book Don Quixote where it was noted that he tilted at windmills because; "they might be giants". The tag line was "Whose reality is right". Well here's a clue Richie. They weren't bleeping giants, and a guy in a dress is not a woman. This law is all about sexual expression. Well, we had enough "sexual expression" in the 1st floor Men's Room at Malden City Hall. Good move Allan going to the WAPO, because The Malden Observer wouldn't print it.
