Pat McHenry (NC-10): the overview

(Quick note form Mike: Welcome Leslie . . . just so everyone knows, we’re looking at this ongoing story to explore the many connections, stories, sources and more. This post and others are not saying anyone is gay or closeted. That being said, there are people connected to the story who are gay…lots of them…and sources include people connected to the deaths of three gay Republican consultants in Florida. Here’s Leslie’s first post on the story. -MR)

Mike and I finally had a long overdue sit-down today. For three hours I delineated all the current well-sourced and not-so-well sourced dirt on our youngest Congressman, Pat McHenry of North Carolina’s 1oth Congressional district.

(And we didn’t even get to his advocacy for ousted College Republican Glenn Murphy, giver of unwanted blowjobs . . . how could we have overlooked that one, Mike?)

Mike tried to chart all of it. He really did. What happened to that chart, Mike? I seem to have misplaced it. It’s not on my “action plan.” Well, I guess mere words will have to do. (Leslie, that chart was so complicated I need a computer program to decipher it! – MR)

To start with, we’ve got several financial disclosure reporting irregularities (details to come on that), and nearly $200,000 of improperly reported 527 (Citizens Club for Growth PAC) funding in 2004. Also, Pat takes money from the gay Republican message master Arthur Finkelstein, who is married to a man in Massachusetts, as he foments ill will towards gays in his district and promotes the “sanctity of marriage.”

Then there’s a wide assortment of unsavory colleagues, high-level staff with drinking and assorting driving problems (below). Three different documented voter fraud cases starting with his former roomie and staffer. Then there’s the repeated co-habitation with men well past his college years (We’ll have a very interesting story related to that in the next week or so).

For this post, I don’t want to make only promises, I start with Pat’s current campaign spokesman Jason Jent Deans, left. He was Pat’s chief of staff from May, 2005 to January 2007. Before that he worked as District Director and on the campaign staff. This is what we’ve uncovered of the vehicular charges he’s faced in North Carolina since 1995 . . . Including death by vehicle.

With a track record like this, the GOP is likely to consider appointing him to a post managing the nation’s driver education instructors . . .
