    that they like money. They know that their bread and butter comes from uber-wealthy oligarchs with the intent to buy elections.

    The Tea Party crowd has no idea that they are being funded by millionaires and billionaires. They still think that they are an independent grass roots movement.

    When someone tells you they are lying, you should believe them.

      Who else is going to spearhead Ms. Mosbacher's primary goal, which, I think, is to keep her taxes low and reduce perceived regulatory burdens?  She is as stuck with them as they are with these uberwealthy, singularly obsessed funders.  No, I expect she doesn't like having to be connected with crazy, but dear Ms. Mosbacher, that's how these guys got as far as they did.  If they started reaching out to Latinos they would need a different mix of issues and your key requirements would likely get very diluted, and many white voters, even, would reassess their allegiance with the Republican party.  

      Yes, you are in a tough spot but I am sure you can afford plenty of handkerchiefs to cry into.
