After two years of fundraising from
who believed their monies would actually be used to help elect Republicans in Hawaii, the
run by party leaders has been
The proof is overwhelming
that the Hawaii GOP has been infiltrated by liberals and incompetents who have no serious intention of doing what's necessary to win. Instead, they merely wanted to
create the illusion of political activity
in order to
mask the diversion of donor funds toward extravagant administrative overhead.
here is the indisputable proof
your financial contributions
have been fraudulently
instead of being used to elect Republicans in Hawaii
. There are
several smoking guns
which prove that your money is being wasted on overhead,
like a fake charity which never uses a penny for its actual mission
For starters, only
, the Hawaii GOP leadership officially made a
confirmed the accusations
from HIRA that
donor funds were being squandered
After a lot of party squabbling and in-fighting about the state party's lack of a campaign in 2016 to win elections, Fritz Rohlfing was asked the direct question
GOP candidates were receiving
in boosting awareness of their campaigns.
Rohlfing's vice chair provided the party leadership's official answer
Yes, vice chair
which is 100% true
-- came only DAYS ago. It turns out that the Hawaii GOP is like the most fraud-based charity imaginable.
Read the full e-mailed official statement
from state party vice chairwoman "Fancy Nancy" Monahan on behalf of state chair Fritz Rohlfing for yourself
from just days ago
in which Monahan confesses to how donor funds are
used by the con artists at the Hawaii GOP. No, the Republican cause is
being advanced. No,
candidates are not being helped
The money is going towards OVERHEAD only
. Monahan even admits
they divert YOUR donations away from better uses during election season
; like paying for building maintenance fees instead of a "media consultant". Worse, Monahan suggests that the Republican candidates are being
ignored for promotion
by local party leaders in
for their fellow LDS 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney being "barely (never) even acknowledged" by the Hawaii Republican Party (HRP).
MUCH, MUCH MORE evidence
that your generous donations to the corrupt Hawaii Republican Party are being
wasted and diverted to overhead
rather than being used to win elections.
But first, look at the
which party leaders have made to donors.
In Fritz Rohlfing's
sent on July 29, 2016, Rohlfing pleads for money
for specific use in campaigning
: "We must raise another $8,550 to meet our goal of $15,000 to fund our get-out-the-vote effort for the upcoming Primary Election." [
If you are on the party's mailing list, chances are high that you received this solicitation by e-mail or by letter.
In a second solicitation four days earlier
, Rohlfing promises that,"
Your donation will help us to mail, phone bank, coordinate, and organize Republicans to turn out in droves on August 13
ups the ante
Your donation will go immediately towards extending and expanding our get-out-the-vote efforts in Hawaii, and your donation could be the one that pushes us to victory! Please chip in right now!
Well, what Fritz
didn't tell you
is that the promised "
turned off by the Hawaii GOP a long time ago
. And the promised "mail" and 'coordination' and 'organizing' of Republicans "to turn out to vote in the Primary Election" was
. No mailer. No organizing. No coordination. No "get-out-the-vote-efforts in Hawaii" to even "extend" and "expand" on. Nothing was being done. Instead, the State Elections Office reported that
only 43,000 people voted Republican
across the entire state of Hawaii. Party leaders had no serious plan to spend a penny on helping Republicans win, even though they specifically raised money from unsuspecting donors for the purpose of "victory".
Not coincidentally, the
amount the party sought in the solicitations above is the identical amount of the party's monthly overhead. That's right --
the promised campaigning by the Hawaii GOP leaders didn't materialize
. . .
not because donors weren't generous enough
but because the money raised was merely to fund the outrageous overhead demanded and authorized by corrupt party leaders.
Nope, you will
find the Republican Party of Hawaii spending
on essential expenses to increase the prospect of GOP candidates winning in 2016,
even though they tell you repeatedly that this is where your money will go
An analysis of the spending --
all of which is disclosed in required reports to the State Campaign Spending Commission (CSC) and the Federal Elections Commission (FEC)
-- reveal that
not a penny is going towards the promised support for candidates in 2016
. The biggest expense is purchase of a
luxury suite of overpriced offices in an expensive part of town
. It's such an
outrageously expensive office
that the monthly 'maintenance fee' is
the price of the already expensive mortgage.
Here is where your
$15,000 per month
is actually going. According to reports from the
, your contributions are going
helping get Republicans elected'
. . .
Party spending in July 2016:
exactly did your money go??
|Cable TV + internet
||$734 (monthly rental)
|one staff member
|refund of donation
||$1,000 (illegal contribution from known Kym Pine associate)
no communications, no electioneering, no get out the vote, no messaging, no advertising, no doorhangers, no telemarketing, no voter registration, no direct mail, no radio, no social media ads, no canvassing, no TV.
GOP candidates have been thrown to the wolves yet again in 2016
Even worse news?
Yes, the party put off paying some of its monthly bills until the next month.
. they postponed pay the monthly cost for another bookkeeper ($1,500 per month), exhorbitant monthly building maintenance ($3,000 per month), office supplies and more. So, your funds will get wasted the following month . . .
using money they told you was to 'get Republicans elected'.
Yes, you thought your donations were going to help elect island GOP candidates in 2016. But that is
what is happening!!
That's right. You will
find expenditures listed for candidate support, advertising, sponsorships, coalition building events, rallies, door-to-door, robocalls,
or any of the costs you would associate with a political campaign by a political party.
ALL OF YOUR DONATIONS ARE DIVERTED TO OVERHEAD
Just days before
the Hawaii GOP's official admission that
funds raised by the party are going solely to overhead
, state chair Rohlfing
appeared to show continued interest in conning GOP donors
with another "fundraising" event for the promised purpose of electing Republican candidates in 2016.
August 2nd invitation
to a $150 per person fundraiser at the Pacific Club promised that his "Chairman's Luncheon" was connected to the purpose of
"activating Hawaii Republicans to win in 2016".
With featured speaker and Obamacare supporter
on hand to (presumably) opine about his support for giving tens of thousands of illegal aliens in Hawaii driver's licenses so they can compete for paying jobs with lawful U.S. citizens here,
Rohlfing fails to make clear what his Vice Chair Monohan freely admitted
-- that this money won't see the light of day because it's been
"Unfortunately, all our money goes to a building."
HEAR IT FOR YOURSELF:
Party leaders made explicit promises. Standing in front of
here's what Pat Saiki promised
at the Hawaii GOP leadership meeting (
known as the 'State Committee
just last year
. . .
Like a 100% fake charity that blows all its donated money
on OVERHEAD like fancy offices, salaries, and perks,
Hawaii's Republican Party WASTED YOUR FUNDS
without even slightly increasing the chances of victory.
*** Stay tuned for even more evidence ***
PROOF that the Hawaii GOP's leadership
never intended to support 2016 candidates.
