George Conway and His Jealous, Deranged Lincoln Project Buds Are Making Bank Off Their ScamPAC

FILE – In this Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017 file photo, President-elect Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, center, accompanied by her husband, George, speaks with members of the media as they arrive for a dinner at Union Station in Washington, the day before Trump’s inauguration. Trump has chosen George Conway to head the civil division of the Justice Department. The Wall Street Journal reports that he was chosen to head the office that has responsibility for defending the administration’s proposed travel ban and defending lawsuits filed against the administration.

As much as one might disagree with George Conway’s Twitter habits or his glaringly obvious jealousy of his wife’s boss, one has to admit he’s a smart man. His undergraduate degree is from Harvard and his law degree from Yale, where he was president of the Federalist Society. Working closely with Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge, he represented Paula Jones in her lawsuit against Bill Clinton. He’s argued cases before the Supreme Court and has been considered for top posts in the US Department of Justice under Republican presidents.

His conservative pedigree is undeniable. So, why is he – along with his Lincoln Project compadres – so illogical when it comes to Donald Trump?

George Conway is so illogical when it comes to Donald Trump precisely because his conservative pedigree is undeniable. Even though Donald Trump is one of the richest men in the world, everything about his style is Tea Party instead of GOP elite. People like George Conway are the “Men of Harvard” who spent their years on campus smoking cigars at finals clubs while scoffing at people like Mark Zuckerberg and discussing “big ideas.” They enjoy people knowing their place in society and staying there.

But Trump didn’t know his place and stay there. He didn’t start out as a governor or a clerk for a federal judge. He’s a billionaire reality show star with nouveau riche decorating taste who has, as far as we can tell, zero interest in debating the finer nuances of case law or policy. He was sick of what he saw happening to America’s economy and, even more importantly, to her spirit, courtesy of leeches in both parties who were paid handsomely regardless of how the policies and pork-barrel bills affected the kitchen tables across the country.

Somehow, this man won the presidency against a woman who’d been planning for it since she learned to talk. And the person largely responsible for this interloper’s win was Conway’s own wife.

So he and a group of incompetent, elitist GOP swamp consultants formed a Spite/ScamPAC to monetize their derangement – and they have. The latest Lincoln Project filings show that a whopping 92 percent of the monies taken in by the PAC during the 1st quarter of 2020 went to either people on the Board of Directors or to companies controlled by them, with the bulk of that going to Reed Galen’s Summit Strategic Communications.

One apologist claimed that the bulk of what was paid to Galen’s firm went into production costs and ad buys…

… like this…

… proving the hypothesis that The Lincoln Project is a spite PAC formed to continue the losing grift its board members have perfected over the years.
