Last week, we exposed FL CD 20 GOP Congressional candidate Robert Lowry’s not-so-congressional candidacy by documenting his laundry list of Federal Election Commission violations, as well as the poor judgment he showed when he scribbled the initials ‘DWS’ on a target that he shot at, and later lied about. More questions are coming out about Lowry candidacy, one of which is- just who is behind the campaign itself? We profiled several of the keys players within the campaign in our last posting, (Tea Party Candidate Robert Lowry).
But before we do this, we must call attention to the fact that Robert Lowry has been in endorsed in this primary by long-time Democrat and Jimmy Carter supporter Howard Neu. Mr. Neu is actively supporting Progressives like Scott Galvin who is running for Congress in FL CD 17 and has donated to his campaign-Galvin praises President Obama and his policies, and is on record of it:
“I support the national health care plan…Like most progressives, I wanted more reform faster. I would have liked anything that would have moved us closer to uniform, rational national health care system.”-Galvin
Why would Robert Lowry actively pursue this endorsement, and why would he promote the endorsement of a know liberal Democrat supporter? The real question is whether or not Mr. Lowry supports Mr. Neu’s liberal beliefs or not. Mr. Lowry himself as stated that he too was a liberal on his website :
“A student of sociology in my early college experience, I was a committed liberal (as many students typically are) attending rallies and marching on Washington D.C. That was until travels to East Berlin, Prague, and other parts of Europe, opened my eyes to the dangers of socialism, causing me to take another look at my political commitments. I made a dramatic change to conservatism, and never looked back.”
Has Robert Lowry gone back to his liberal ways, or is he so desperate that he is becoming another Charlie Crist opportunist that will do anything to win an election? The following information is just more added facts to the growing understanding of why Robert Lowry is a poor representation of the Tea Party movement and the Republican party.
Now, we”ll add some more background to our earlier post by revealing some more interesting facts and tidbits that add to the growing understanding as to why Robert Lowry is a poor representative of the Tea Party movement and the Republican party.
Mr. Leggatt is notorious for pressuring local GOP officials into endorsing his candidate over the other Republicans in the race. Officials have expressed how annoyed they have been with Mr. Leggatt with his tiresome attempts to convince them that Robert Lowry is the only candidate that can win. His argument basically boils down to the fact that Lowry has been “running” the longest, even though he was not the first candidate to file. Yes, Lowry has been running the longest, but his fundraising has been nearly nonexistent and it shows the general lack of support his campaign has.
Leggatt, is also known for ‘Gestapo-like’ intimidation tactics that always fail, yet still he attempts to intimidate, so we need to give him an ‘A’ for effort. Mr. Leggatt and another staffer, whom will be profile here in a few- Charles “Chad” Lincoln, have delved into mudslinging and outright slander during this campaign, yet the irony behind this all is that Mr. Leggatt should be the one biting his tongue about issues of public record. Here is a screen capture from the Broward.Org website (public record) of some very troubling matters. (Check out the link here-Christopher Leggatt)
Charles ‘Chad’ Lincoln
Mr. Lincoln is under investigation in a civil suit and continues to promote the same tactics that have started the scrutiny of his actions. Lincoln has long been a self-proclaimed supporter of the rule of law and says that people need to be held accountable for their actions, but the hypocrisy here seems to be flying in every direction when Mr. Lincoln tries to lead the charge against politicians and organizations that have been under some scrutiny from the Federal Elections Commissions(FEC). The Lowry for Congress Campaign has been under this same scrutiny several times over the past year or so. (Robert Lowry- FEC)
DC Works for Us
DC Works for Us, or as many would say, “DC Works for Lowry”, is a grassroots organization spearheaded in Broward County, Florida by Karin Hoffman. The organization holds meetings around the county, and whose sole purpose is to help elected Republican candidates-their candidates. DC Works for Us has endorsed the Edward Lynch for Congress in FL CD 19 and has also endorsed Robert Lowry for Congress in FL CD 20. Most of the supporters in the organization are faithful, hardworking individuals who care greatly about what is going on in the country, but some of this groups’ tactics have been entirely counterproductive and divisive, and their actions are only serving to do damage to the broader cause of stopping the Obama agenda.
