According to Breitbart Jim DeMint, who now heads the Heritage Foundation and founded the Senate Conservatives PAC, is trying to unseat Mitch McConnell. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has taken a very dim view of that effort and is making the friends of Jim DeMint pay for that decision.
According to several reports the NRSC, which is primarily charged with helping to elect and keep republicans in the Senate, has made it clear that a third party contractor who has been doing business with DeMint's rogue group should not be given any business by current republican office holders. And for good reason.
In describing his reason for boycotting the consulting firm, Jamestown Associates, NRSC head Brad Dayspring told the New York Times “We’re not going to do business with people who profit off of attacking Republicans. Purity for profit is a disease that threatens the Republican Party.”
It has been my opinion for some time that the "purity" claim of TEA party candidates is a hoax to begin with. Those claiming purity are using that claim as a rung on the ladder to get power and money for themselves. Clearly the only "pure" thing being pursued by consultants that market themselves to the likes of Jim DeMint is "pure profit".
Of course the TEA party is crying foul over the boycott, which is of course hypocritical. Members of the TEA party caucus have made it clear that they are boycotting the GOP. A little turn about only seems like fair play.
