The establishment anti-Trump super PAC responsible for the sleazy and exploitative ad featuring a semi-nude picture of Donald Trump’s wife has reportedly been linked to former candidate Carly Fiorina. In a bombshell report the Liz Mair front group “Make America Awesome” shares a mailing address with the political operation of the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who has endorsed Ted Cruz in the ongoing efforts to deny Trump the 1,237 delegates needed to avoid a brokered convention.
Conservative website Breitbart News reports “Liz Mair’s Anti-Trump Super PAC Has Same Mailing Address as Carly Fiorina’s Campaign”:
Consultant Liz Mair’s controversial anti-Donald Trump super PAC shares a mailing address with Carly Fiorina’s presidential campaign, which just re-launched as a nonprofit.
Fiorina is a Sen. Ted Cruz supporter.
Mair’s PAC Make America Awesome is under fire after it ran a sexist advertisement in Utah featuring Trump’s wife Melania, a model, posing nude. The ad encouraged people to vote for Ted Cruz. Mair is open about the fact that she is helping to boost Cruz, though Cruz has denied involvement with the ad.
But how does Make America Awesome make money?
According to the PAC’s most recent report, filed on February 29, 2016, the group listed only seven donors as having given $200 or more, including consultant Juleana Glover, a former George W. Bush and Bill Kristol employee who now works for Teneo Holdings, an advisory firm linked to Bill Clinton.
The PAC takes money in envelopes at a PO box in Alexandra, Virginia.
“If you would like to donate by mail, send checks to: Make America Awesome PO Box 26141 Alexandria, VA 22313,” the PAC’s website states.
The PAC’s Facebook page also lists its address as “PO Box 26141” in “Alexandria, Virginia.”
That PO box also happens to be the mailing address for Carly for America, which was Fiorina’s presidential campaign and just re-launched as a nonprofit organization.
Carly for America was still listed at PO Box 26141 in Alexandria at the time of its last monthly FEC filing on March 20, 2016, according to the Federal Election Commission.
Carly for America Committee listed PO Box 26141 in Alexandria on its FEC public disclosure form on February 26, 2015.
Fiorina sent out an email on March 23 announcing that Carly for America is back, and will help to elect “consevative candidates.” Fiorina has endorsed Ted Cruz.
Not that this should come as any sort of a surprise. The horse-faced Fiorina has long been a RNC/GOPe operative who worked with both the John McCain and Mitt Romney campaigns. She also has longtime ties to the Washington based national security state having served as a special corporate advisory to the CIA and providing H.P. equipment to the NSA which used it for domestic mass surveillance. She never had a chance as a candidate but was a key player in countering Team Hillary’s inevitable smears of GOP critics as being sexist. However, that plan was foiled when she had to be used prematurely to combat the Trump insurgency.
Like Fiorina, Ms. Mair herself has a history of incestuous ties to the establishment having served as an actual RNC operative as well as for then candidate Scott Walker. The Breitbart report shows how despite outward appearances that the push to deny Trump the nomination is a widespread and multi-faceted operation. Mair first made news last year when she boasted of a “guerrilla” campaign to damage Trump.
While the media has been getting a lot of mileage blaming Trump for the National Enquirer hit piece that Ted Cruz was having extramarital affairs with five women it conveniently neglects to mention that the entire Heidi Cruz victim meme was kicked off by Mair’s (and Fiorina’s?) sleazy ad to win a few more votes in Utah. It looks like the Melania Trump ad was an establishment sanctioned effort from the get go.
