Who on earth thought this was a good idea? Believe it or not, it links back to a close associate of ever-so-Christian slate maker Dr. Steve Hotze.
The campaign for Wendy Davis is hitting Republican Greg Abbott, her opponent in the race for Texas governor, for his ties to a firm whose comptroller recently created a political action committee named Boats ’N Hoes PAC.
“The language used by Greg Abbott’s consultants is offensive to every Texas mother and daughter — and the men who love them — and has no place in politics,” said Davis spokeswoman, Rebecca Acuña, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
The PAC — whose name might be a possible reference to the movie “Step Brothers” — was registered earlier this month by Shaun Nowacki, the outlet reported on Wednesday. Nowacki is currently listed as a comptroller for Blakemore & Associates, which advised eight previous Abbott campaigns from 1991 to 2004, the outlet said.
Yep, Nowacki is part of the operation run by Allen Blakemore – you know, Dr. Hotze’s pet political consultant. The guy who you hire if you want the pay-to-play endorsement of Hotze the Social Pharisee influence peddler whose endorsements are based upon only one principle – will you give him as much money as he demands in your race.
And now they are (or were) out there giving money under the name of Boats ‘N Hoes – a bad joke from a lousy movie that was antithetical to Christian values. Seems like this Holy Week we’ve found out just how hypocritical that crew can be – not that it comes as a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.
Call it one more reason to reject the slates as many conservative activists and I did at the last HCRP Executive Committee meeting and our senatorial district conventions this spring. Here’s hoping the state adopts our plank.
By the way – here’s what they promoted with the name they selected. It is pretty disgusting stuff, and I include this link to the NSFW lyrics only to make it clear just how inappropriate the actions of the holier-than-thou set really were in this case.
Way to display your family values, guys. And way to glorify the Lord, too.
