‘Enough Is Enough!’: Man Takes Obamacare Fight Straight To GOP, Suing For Money Back

Bob Heghmann has an interesting complaint for the GOP.

There are a lot of angry Americans. As Congress leaves for their August recess, most of their “work” time was spent on blocking President Trump’s every move. As Teddy Stick has been reporting, even Republicans can’t be trusted to support their Party’s president. One right-wing retiree in Virginia is so angry, he is suing.

Bob Heghmann, 70, is a retired attorney from Virginia Beach. His lawsuit claims that the national and Virginia Republicans and certain GOP leaders deceived campaign contributors. He alleges that the candidates knew they wouldn’t be able to repeal Obamacare and yet most ran on that promise anyway. Since he was a donor, he wants his money back.

According to the lawsuit, the defendants have “been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.”

It is not too often that racketeering charges are seen outside of organized crime. It simply means a “pattern of illegal activity carried out as part of an enterprise that is owned or controlled by those who are engaged in the illegal activity.”

The defendants named are the Republican National Committee, the Republican Party of Virginia and its Chairman John Whitbeck, as well as Virginia’s two national GOP members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar.

In two separate emails from Blackwell and Dunbar the lawsuit was dismissed as a “frivolous, nuisance suit that should be thrown out of court by any judge,” and “ridiculous.” At the same time, both acknowledged Heghmann’s complaints as valid. Blackwell stated that the suit is a “sign of conservative anger that the Republican-controlled Congress has not yet repealed and replaced Obamacare.”

That is clearly true of many Americans and not just Heghmann. He further noted that “progressives” had taken over the Democrats but sadly, “conservatives” had not yet taken over the Republican Party. Another sentiment probably felt by the majority.

It will be interesting to watch what happens with Mr. Heghmann’s lawsuit and whether it spurs some Republicans into action.
