CA GOP Uproar

Well well well. This is what good reporters are supposed to do. Less than 24 hours after the SF Chronicle headlined the suspicious mess at the top of the California GOP, the “illegal” immigrant just appointed to be the COO of the party, got dumped.

Michael Kamburowski, an Australian immigrant who served as the California Republican Party’s chief operating officer, abruptly resigned Sunday — less than 24 hours after The Chronicle reported he had been ordered deported in 2001, jailed in connection with the order, and now has a $5 million wrongful arrest lawsuit pending against U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials….

The news came as GOP officials and leaders expressed shock and fury at the troubled — and apparently unknown — immigration history of the person who handled the multimillion-dollar budget of the nation’s largest state Republican Party.

For background, and links to the original — shocking– story, go here.

There is still more to spill out here. Why on earth did state party chair Ron Nehring hire him — simply on the basis of their work relationship at Grover Norquist’s Washington D.C. operations a decade ago? What is the relation between Nehring and/or Kamburowski and another immigrant, Christopher Matthews, hired to be the state Political Director not so long ago?

The Reds have plenty to be red about here, from fiscal imprudence to rank hypocrisy. Worth watching!
