Analysis of Boldt dumping GOP affiliation. (Updated)

(FULL DISCLOSURE:  I freely admit that I am totally opposed to Marc Boldt's election this time, just as I was last time, since he's completely sold out to the left; forgotten/ignored GOP principles, supports the CRC scam in it's entirety and wants to hang tolls around our neck for the next several decades that will destroy a great deal of small business in Clark County as a result.

NO candidate or campaign or anyone involved or in any way concerned with any candidate or campaign was aware of or approved or had input into this post.

Further, Marc Boldt is my brother-in-law, and I worked for him as his legislative assistant for 6 years while he was in the state house.)

It was inevitable at some point, I suppose: Marc Boldt has dumped the GOP.

Boldt, who is a Republican Precinct Committee Officer for Precinct 620 even though he has never shown up to a GOP meeting or function since he was first elected 3 years ago, has served as a genuinely Republican state representative for 5 terms and an allegedly Republican county commissioner for 2 more.

I don't believe, in the end, that it's going to help him all that much... particularly since, when he announced, he claimed he as running as a "conservative Republican" which later segued into a "moderate Republican" which has now led to "not Republican at all."

But what this DOES do is end any restriction on Boldt from rabidly campaigning for his fellow democrat's votes.  Further, no longer being a Republican spares him from those "inconvenient" pro-life questions: he won't have to worry about that now, and it frees up the fringe-left like Jimmy Moeller and that ilk to trot out their support of him... since principles are meaningless in the face of getting elected these days.

This will be grist for the democratian's mill: they hate Republicans generally and conservatives particularly; one need look no farther than Lefty Lou Brancaccio's jihad against Benton, Madore, Mielke, me, and even the more moderate Brent Boger. Expect a series of articles and Lefty Lou editorials telling us how wonderful it is that Boldt has dumped the GOP and how far Boldt has come since the democratian demanded his resignation while he was a state representative.

The result is their rabid support of RINOs: Kimsey, Herrera and now, Boldt.

That all three of them rabidly support the CRC/Loot Rail scam likely has a lot to do with it to be sure.

But in the end, the problems that plagued Boldt in 2012 still remain:

He supported the CRC/Loot Rail scam

He campaigned for the hated CTran tax increase and he authored the CTran taxing districts that exclude tens of thousands of us from having a vote on their tax increases... but not from paying the taxes he set up.

He voted for an unconstitutional gun confiscation ordinance against my advice.

He spiked any effort to hold any kind of vote on the CRC Scam.

He rabidly supported the Charter scam as something of a hypocrite, given that he served 8 years as a commissioner and never once tried to change the government structure while HE was in it.

In fact, he voted so democrat the local GOP kicked him out... which makes me wonder why he's a GOP PCO.

In his announcement, Marc says:

As a county commissioner, I built a strong record of working with everyone—Democrats, Republicans, and those with no preference. As the only position on the county council that is elected countywide, the Chair needs to be able to represent ALL of Clark County, regardless of their party.”
He also built a strong record of ignoring those he would govern on the CRC, on tax increases, on advisory votes and on CTrans.  In short, he essentially ignored Tom Mielke, his fellow Republican on the commission while he doggedly supported the CRC Scam and rarely failed to vote with democrat Steve "I'm not a voice of the people" Stuart.. which led to his removal, first from the GOP and then from office when he was soundly thrashed in 2012 by David Madore after only receiving 30% of the vote in his own commissioner district.

How that kind of nonsense equates to some sort of record of "representing ALL of Clark County" is utterly absurd.

Locally, the C3G2 haters will rabidly applaud his departure from the GOP, of course.  For all the good it will do them.

Marc Boldt means the CRC Revival and Marc's efforts to yoke the 65,000 commuting families with a $2000 or more per year toll just to go to work..  Marc Boldt means higher taxes (He raised the sales tax without asking us and he raised property taxes 6 out of 8 years he was a commissioner) Marc Boldt means the people will be ignored... again... just like he ignored us last time.

So, there you have it.  And much more to come.
