A False Flag

Now I speak of something that several Republicans have talked about privately, but nobody has spoken about publicly until now... Daniel Vovak a Democrat in disguise?

Sure Daniel Vovak has ostensibly "run" for several offices as a Republican, included a "campaign" for President in 2004 when he wasn't eligible, seeking the Republican nomination for Senate in 2004 when the Republican nominee was disqualified (ironically, that selection went to former Marylander Alan Keyes, who got the right to get trounced by Barack Obama that November). Vovak then sought the Republican nomination for Senate here in Maryland in 2006, running a relatively Seinfeld-esque campaign while wearing a wig, followed up by his quixotic campaign for State Party Chair last year. In between, he managed to come up with a hairbrained movie concept about the Monica Lewinsky that starred Paula Jones and wrote a novel with himself as the main character.

His latest publicity stunts haven't really done much better as far as establishing credibility. He's running for Montgomery County Executive, ostensibly as a Republican but taking wildly odd political positions many of which run contrary to basic Republican principles. In the meantime, he's also trying to hire a Democratic County Councilman to run his administration, attended Martin O'Malley's campaign kickoff. His latest stunt is publicly pointing out that the Maryland Democratic Party thanked the Republican Vovak for his donation. And Vovak even manages to throw this quote in there:
I'm probably the only Republican since Connie Morella whom Democrats can trust.
I think it is safe to say that Daniel Vovak is not a Republican, at least by any ostensibly reasonable definition of what it is to be a Republican. Not only does Vovak not take any reasonably Republican issue positions in his campaign, but it also is clear that any time that Vovak obtains even a modicum of publicity for his schemes, it is always in a light to brings disdain and embarrassment to the Maryland Republican Party.

Daniel Vovak may be a registered Republican. He may be a candidate in a Republican Primary. But it is clear that Vovak is not a Republican, merely a liberal operating under a false flag in order to bring shame to our side. And I don't think that we should pretend that he is anything else any longer...

The strangeness of Alvin Greene, nominee for the U.S. Senate
By Alex Pappas -The Daily Caller 2:42 AM 06/11/2010

The Alvin Greene for Senate campaign may go down as the strangest of the election cycle.

First, Greene — an unemployed veteran who did not actively campaign or spend any money going after votes before Tuesday’s election in South Carolina— defeated a former state legislator for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in the Palmetto state. Greene, it was revealed following his victory, is facing a pending felony charge for showing pornography to a college student.

So the South Carolina Democratic Party, after the pornography story came to light, asked Greene to withdraw from the race. One congressman even suggested that Greene was a plant of the Republicans. Carol Fowler, the chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

And the office of Sen. Jim DeMint, the Republican incumbent that Greene is challenging, denied any sort of scheme to plant him in the race. “No,” Wesley Denton, a spokesman for DeMint told Dave Weigel of the Washington Post. “It’s ridiculous even to suggest that.”

But the strangeness continued Thursday: A Twitter account was set up by a user claiming to be Alvin Greene, who used the social media site to advertise an open position as his campaign manager. By the end of the day, Daniel Vovak, a Republican who in 2006 ran against then-Lt. Gov. Michael Steele for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, claimed to The Daily Caller that he was Greene’s campaign manager.

“He’s an inspiration for candidates,” Vovak said during a short phone interview with The Daily Caller. But by Thursday night, the dubious Twitter account was deleted, and the extent of Vovak’s involvement in the campaign — if he’s really involved at all — was not immediately clear.
