Amy Kremer Resigns from Tea Party Express

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/18/Amy-Kremer-Resigns-from-Tea-Party-Express

by Michael Patrick Leahy18 Apr 2014

Amy Kremer, one of the original Tea Party activists who participated in the February 20, 2009 call that launched the movement and played a key role as scheduler of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party rallies, resigned on Friday as chairman of Tea Party Express, a position which she has held since the summer of 2009.
 
Tea Party Express, a political action committee known for its national bus tours, was one of the first national organizations to successfully raise money through appeals to Tea Party supporters and activists. The group played a significant role in helping Tea Party candidates win Senate and Congressional elections in 2010 and 2012.
 
Some of the candidates it backed, such as Christine O'Donnell in the 2010 U.S. Senate election in Delaware and Richard Mourdock in the 2012 U.S. Senate election in Indiana, won their primaries but lost general elections due, in part, to well publicized gaffes on the campaign trail some attributed to their political inexperience.
 
Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, told Breitbart News on learning of Kremer's resignation: "Amy is a strong fighter for liberty. She's been a part of this movement since the beginning, and I wish her nothing but the very best in the future."
 
In a statement, Kremer said, "This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me (to) leave Tea Party Express."
 
Kremer added, "I've wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement. So as we move into this election cycle, I think the time is right."
 
Kremer offered no details about her specific plans for the future, but did say, "I'm excited about engaging in competitive Senate primaries and supporting fiscal conservatives in the coming weeks."

I read elsewhere she was going to work on the Matt Bevin camaign. And she was going to work on the campaign to replace Thad Cochran, too.

In some instances there is talk of accomodations between key people and factions, like getting Buck to step aside in Colorado.

Apparently this gal is one-speed ahead; namely replace Republicans period. If the outcome is Democrats so what to her.

I wonder if her departure is related, and she's being pushed out the door?

Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I saw this and think it is fascinating.  Last month Amy Kremer said this... http://www.redding.com/news/2014/mar/26/after-setbacks-tea-party-members-vow-reinvent-move/

“We’ve definitely matured and have gone into what many of us call ‘tea party 2.0,’
  Evidently the rest of the Tea Party Express disagrees.

also from the same story...

Quote
“I don’t think that they are raising the money nor do they have the sway that they did in the last midterm elections,” said Steven C. LaTourette, a former Republican congressman from Ohio who is leading an effort to counter the influence of conservative lobbying groups that he blames for inciting divisions within the Republican Party.


If the money is drying up then the Tea Party will change.  We are already seeing groups like Club for Growth becoming more selective in who they endorse but Amy is a balls deep in taking the fight to the GOPe.  I don't think Bevin has a shot of winning and he's running out of time to change the narrative.

The GOP civil war is now been moved to a Tea Party civil war.  Those who want to die on the alter of political purity will die on the alter.  RIP Amy.
"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

There is a big irony, in that the Tea Party presumes to instruct others who to select for our leaders, then puts forth candidate after candidate that loses the seat, under embarrassing and avoidable circumstances.

and then blame someone else for the loss..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

....spinning like a dervish.

"Candidate Akins, member of the House Tea Party Caucus," wasn't a Tea Party candidate. Huh?
