Manny Roman, the Miami-Dade Republican Party Vice Chair, told author and speaker Trevor Loudon Tuesday that after he publicly endorsed Ted Cruz, “everything just blew up down here.”
Roman spoke with Loudon on this week’s episode of LoudonClear. Roman defied the GOP establishment by endorsing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in a letter to the Editor published in the Miami Herald.
As reported previously at TrevorLoudon.com, Roman’s act of defiance led party chief Nelson Diaz, who has worked with Marco Rubio (and even donated to Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz) to call for Roman’s resignation, saying the endorsement “violated a Republican Party of Florida rule that prohibits GOP officers from endorsing one Republican over another.”
Manny told Trevor, “everything just blew up down here.” Manny explained that party officials questioned his decision and the GOP establishment in Florida received calls from “many important people…giving them hell.”
Roman explained to Loudon that the motion was not effective; However he was censured for endorsing Ted Cruz.
Watch Roman discuss his decision with Fox’s Neil Cavuto here:
It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!
Here are this week’s nominees…
The Goons Who Work For Venezuela’s Fascist Regime
Lopez’s mother was molested and searched in the presence of her two young grandchildren.
She was ordered to remove her clothes in front of her grandchildren, six-year-old Manuela and Leopoldo Santiago, aged two.
Left Wing Wack Job Adam H. Johnson!
The Independent Sentinel: I have to say Adam H Johnson who writes for the gutter crawling rag, Alternet, is one of the worst weasels I’ve come across.
Check out this tweet, one of many along the same lines and tell me he’s not a weasel of the lowest order.
Trump Campaign Spokeswoman Katrina Pierson!
The Daley Gator: My Nominee is Katrina Pierson, Trump Campaign spokesperson. I knew that when presidential nominee shyster Donald Trump hired campaign spokes-shyster Katrina Pierson that she would be trouble for him.
Morally Deficient Harris County, Texas DA Devon Anderson!
A Harris County grand jury investigating allegations that a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston illegally sold the tissue of aborted fetuses has cleared the organization of wrongdoing and instead indicted two anti-abortion activists behind the undercover videos that sparked the probe.
Secret videographers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden received an additional misdemeanor indictment under the law prohibiting the purchase and sale of human organs.
Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the surprising indictments Monday after a two-month investigation.
Shocking, but maybe not too surprising considering Harris County’s reputation for political shenanigans. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry was also indicted by a Harris County grand jury, it so happens.
Well, there it is. What a despicable group of Weasels… ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
