Those of you that read my work regularly know that I have chronicled Charles Munger’s largesse in Republican Politics.
I typically do not criticize Mr. Munger for donating to the Party or Central Committees. He spends thousands, if not hundreds of thousands on voter registration and party building. He deserves applause, not scorn for that.
However, I have been critical of him for apparently targeting conservatives and for supporting liberal Republicans in safe Republican seats.
In the current cycle, Munger is supporting Anna Bryson in AD73. Bryson appears to have abandoned her past conservative stances on Social Issues as her candidate website is silent on them. Charles has chipped in $66k thus far to help her.
It is well-known that Anna Bryson cannot stand on her own. Documented research shows that she either can’t or won’t pay her bills without being under external pressure.
There is a Website that has been attacking current vice-chairman of the California GOP Harmeet Dhillon furiously. It is called Munger Games.
A couple of weeks ago, they did a hasty and typo-laden post on some of munger’s donations to Republican Candidates running as sacrificial lambs in lopsided dem districts.
In that post, they leveled the charge that Charles Munger was trying to buy delegates for the upcoming GOP Platform battle.
Since then, crickets.
Since that post, Charles Munger has ponied up $1.9 Million in to his Pac. The Spirit of Democracy PAC has also received money from the dentists, realtors, JobsPac and others seeking flexible Republicans.
The Munger Games has been MIA.
Rather – they have spent more of their time attacking Harmeet Dhillon.
The money behind the Munger games is Mike Schroeder. I know it, I worked with him on the past rendition of the Munger Watch website. Schroeder lives in Orange County – you’d think he would care about:
- $4100 to Keith Curry
- $8200 to Anna Bryson
- $4100 to Young Kim (CRA endorsed)
- $4100 to Janet Nguyen (CRA endorsed)
- $1000 to Cecilia Iglesias (CRA endorsed)
You’d think Schroeder would care about the $66k to Anna Bryson, which is likely the leading edge of about $250k.
Mike Schroeder used to be a power broker within the California GOP establishment. His influence effectively ended with the humiliating defeat of Rodney Stanhope by Harmeet Dhillon. (881-227)
Steve Frank, another former CRA President was Rodney’s Campaign manager. Many observers believe that some of the Munger Games posts have been written by Frank. Compare the writing styles and typos of the Steve Frank daily newsletters to the Munger Games… you will see several similarities in some of the Munger Games posts.
Frank also uses his influence within the Tea Party California Caucus to spread un-vetted rumors about Harmeet to their membership. These are repeated without question within the echo chambers of the various tea parties.
So, it is no coincidence really that the Munger Games cares more about attempting to destroy the sitting Vice Chair of the California Republican Party – because of the apparent vendetta of its’ owners – versus exposing the “waste of patrimony” by Charles Munger.
The Munger Games is MIA.
