S.C. “Republican” party chairman Matt Moore‘s alleged involvement in establishment efforts to deprive GOP frontrunner Donald Trump of the 2016 presidential nomination have created some serious backlash for the aspiring politico.
The leading edge of the storm? Questions over Moore’s financial deals as chairman of the party – and whether he is supplementing his $100,000 annual salary with other income that could color his objectivity.
“Matt’s job is to referee the games,” one frustrated GOP activist told us. “His job is to ensure that the rules are fair for all candidates and to aggressively fight for the Republican nominees once they have been chosen by the voters. If he’s getting paid by one of the teams, how can his judgment in party matters be trusted?”
Moore’s critics – notably the embattled neo-Confederate political empire of veteran GOP consultant Richard Quinn – believe his anti-Trump machinations and thinly-concealed support for establishment politicians like Marco Rubio mask a covert payday.
Or at the very least the promise of one to come …
“Everybody knows he’s stepping down in 2017 – is there any doubt who is going to hire him?” another activist noted.
