Girdusky cited a story published on The Wichita Eagle, which detailed Marshall’s reckless driving incident.

According to court documents from Christmas Eve in 2008, Assistant Barton County Attorney Carey Fleske came before a district court judge and made a simple request: expunge Marshall’s conviction that he received in the fall for reckless driving and replace it with a lesser offense.

As The Wichita Eagle article noted, “The judge agreed, turning a suspended jail sentence for the future Kansas Congressman and Republican U.S. Senate candidate into a slap on the wrist.”

In addition, the article pointed out that “Fleske was more than a prosecutor. He was also the son of Marshall’s business partner and neighbor.”

Marshall originally received charges for reckless driving and battery following a May 2008 incident where he allegedly hit a Great Bend resident with his truck. The issue was settled through a civil lawsuit outside of court. Mashall insists that he did not hit the man.

The incident came up again during Marshall’s 2016 campaign for Congress, when Representative Tim Huelskamp dropped an ad featuring audio of the 911 phone call. Marshall’s connection to the prosecutor was never covered during that case. After a number of stories dropped, the incident ended up falling out of the spotlight and Marshall proceeded to win the western Kansas seat.

Four years later, Marshall is running for an even more prestigious seat.

His campaign has still offered vague explanations about the reduction in charges or Marshall’s connection to the prosecutor.

Marshall is one of America First candidate Kris Kobach’s primary rivals for Kansas’s vacant Senate seat.

Because of Kobach’s staunch immigration patriotism, the political establishment will do everything it can to downplay Marshall’s questionable past and try to attack Marshall as much as possible;

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
